Three appointments to present the 46th edition of Filo
The 46th edition of Filo, the exhibition of yarns and fibers, will be held at the Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan on 28 and 29 September 2016. The autumn edition of Filo presentation is through a road show which includes press conferences in Biella (June 20, 2016 – 10:30 am – Valetto room – Industrial Union of Biella – Via Torino 56 ) , in Milan (June 21, 2016 – 10:30 am – Palazzo delle Stelline – Corso Magenta 61 ) and Prato (June 23 – 14:30 – F1 room – Confindustria Toscana Nord – via Valentini 14 ) .
Says Paolo Monfermoso, Filo manager: «We see growing interest around Filo. This is confirmed by the very good performance of applications to the 46th edition, which brought a very large number of companies to confirm their presence well in advance. We are also very pleased with the attention that has raised among operators the choice to present the 46th edition of Filo also in Prato: an additional appointment to the two traditional press conferences of Biella and Milan that we have achieved with the active collaboration of Confindustria Toscana Nord. Still on this point, the long-standing and very productive cooperation with ITA-Agency continues. For the 46th edition, it includes, as usual, the arrival of a delegation of buyers from countries reported by Filo exhibitors, but we are also planning business to business meetings to promote the fair in foreign markets where the textile industry is more vibrant. Already confirmed the meeting in Istanbul on 21 September, we are now developing with ITA-Agency actions to the Far East markets. Everything always with one goal: always offer companies participating in Filo, as exhibitors or visitors, new business opportunities. » The three press conferences to present the 46th edition are not only an opportunity to anticipate the strategies and initiatives of Filo; they are also an opportunity to illustrate the product development proposals elaborated for the exhibition by Gianni Bologna, Filo manager for creativity and style. The theme of the 46th edition is “Luxury Revolution”: it explores the evolution of the concept of luxury and high range products and focuses on innovation; however, new researches are still on the solid foundations of the Italian textile industry, starting from those corporate archives that are a real asset for Made in Italy. According to Bologna, in fact, we should read «re-volution in its double meaning of “turning back” and “turn against”, with the first representing a starting point for creative design developments across both traditional noble materials and those innovative. While the second meaning leads us to explore renewed structuring and textile design, aimed at creating new aesthetics and new functionalities. And to stay closer to reality we speak, not of luxury, but of “luxuries”, in the plural, because, like any other manifestation of modern social life, the facets induced by hyper-communication are endless, in this context too.»
