Filo’s opening time: from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the first day and from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the second one.
Filo exhibits high quality yarns, intended for top-of-the-range products, made carried out by companies whose watchwords are sustainability, research and innovation.
Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, declares: “The main theme of the 51stedition of Filo is sustainability. This is a theme on which our Exhibition has been focused on for several years, since we believe that it represents a significant challenge facing today the companies belonging to textile-apparel industry. Of course, for companies upstream of the production chain, sustainability can only be a process sustainability and can only unfold along the stages of production. As far as Filo is concerned, that of collaboration with other players in our industry is an approach that we have been following with much conviction and that has allowed us to achieve important goals. I am mainly talking about our systematic and productive cooperation together with ITA-Agency, Sistema Moda Italia and Milano Unica, which continue to perform high results: this is shown by the increasing interest in the presence of Filo in the Milano Unica Trend Area. Really, this is also shown by the delegation of foreign buyers attending each Filo edition thanks to the partnership with ITA-Agency. The delegation for the 51stedition is made of buyers coming from United Kingdom, Turkey, Spain, France, Belgium, Portugal: they have been detected and invited through a formula closer to the needs of our exhibiting companies”.
