The 47th edition of Filo, the international exhibition of yarns and fibres, closed in a very positive tone, with a high growth in visitors’ number: +14% compared to the spring edition of 2016.
Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, commented: “The 47th edition Filo closed in a very positive mood. Buyers’ attendance was higher than expected and it confirmed that our organisational choices, according to the evolution of the textile-apparel industry fair calendar, have met the real needs of companies, both exhibiting and visiting ones. The increase in foreign buyers’ visits was also significant since it reflects, on one hand, the role that Filo is playing internationally and, on the other, the interest that excellent productions of our exhibiting companies meet worldwide. A further confirmation came from the great interest for the meetings set up with members of the foreign delegation promoted by Filo along with the Italian Trade Agency; in this edition the delegation was made up of buyers from Japan, Korea, India, USA, France, Belgium, UK, Spain and Turkey”.
The 48th edition of Filo will take place on September 27-28, 2017 at the Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan.
