At 5.30 p.m. on the 2nd of March 2016 at FiloLounge will take place, as usual, the FiloHappening Cocktail, at the end of the first working day: a further occasion to talk about yarns and market’s trends with exhibitors, in a friendly atmosphere.
The appointment with innovation and research is continuous over the two days of the exhibition, thanks to the initiative promoted by Filo in cooperation with PointTex – Textile Innovation Cluster. In the space reserved to the research centre, exhibitors, visitors and journalists can get an idea of the projects that have been already carried out or those that are under construction, but also meet PointTex’s technicians to discuss about new possible textile developments.
