The four meetings of the Filo roadshow to present the 52nd edition were a success: the participation of exhibitors, operators and press at the events was higher than expected.
Assessing the results of June four meetings, Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, states: “Filo roadshow gives us the opportunity to dialogue together with all professionals participating in Filo. From Biella and Prato, we receive exhibitors’ prompts and suggestions, helping us to define a general framework of the of the exhibiting companies’ needs. In Milan, in addition to the exhibitors from Lombardy and Veneto, we meet many journalists, who follow Filo with interest and continuity, and this enables us to convey Filo’s contents and news to a wider audience. Paris is crucial for the increasing internationalisation of Filo, especially on visitors’ side”.
Regarding the June 2019 roadshow, Mr. Monfermoso highlights: “In all four meetings, we have witnessed the audience’s great interest in FiloFlow. It is a tracking project of the textile supply chain, aimed to highlight and to enhance sustainable production processes and products implemented by our exhibitors. Filo’s exhibitors welcomed enthusiastically the project, with a participation higher than expected. In our conception, sustainability is carried out in a supply chain’s framework, since this is the only way to ensure a complete products traceability. Moreover, the strengthening of the supply chain is also the objective of the synergies that Filo has been establishing with ITA-Agency, Sistema Moda Italia, Milano Unica, and starting now with Acimit, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers”.
