The 49th edition of Filo, the international yarns and fibres” exhibition, ended positively. During the two days of the fair, the spotlight shone on the excellent yarns offered by the exhibitors, and highly appreciated by the qualified buyers – Italian and foreign – who visited the show.
Paolo Monfermoso said: “The 49th edition of Filo closed in a very positive atmosphere. We registered an increase in exhibitors’ number: 91 for this edition. Buyers’ flow too performed well: although in the same days of Filo there were in Milan many other textile events, we consolidated the visitors’ numbers of the 2017 editions. Our work also continues to strengthen the value of an integrated supply chain oriented towards synergies in its various steps. That’s why starting from the September edition, Filo has opened its doors to a selected group of dyeing mills. In the 49th edition we added the institutional presence of Acimit – The Association of Italian textile machinery builders. The enhancement of synergies between Filo and Milano Unica pursues the same goal, and it brought us to show Filo’s trends within their Trend Village at the last edition of Milano Unica. In addition, we have established a very long and satisfactory cooperation with Sistema Moda Italia and the Italian Trade Agency, with great results especially as far as internationalisation is concerned.”
The 50th edition of Filo will be held in September 2018 at Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan.
