The road-show for the presentation of the 52nd edition of Filo will take place in June with the following schedule: on the 4th of June in Paris at the Hotel Castille; on Monday the 17th of June in Biella at the Unione Industriale Biellese; on Tuesday the 18th of June in Milan at Palazzo delle Stelline and on Wednesday the 19th of June in Prato at the local Chamber of Commerce.
Why will the road-show for the presentation of the 52nd edition of Filo start in Paris? The meeting is scheduled on the 4th of June in Paris at Hotel Castille, and Paolo Monfermoso, general manager of Filo, explains the reasons of the choice: “Let’s start from some data: France is currently an interesting market for our exhibitors. French fabrics manufacturers have indeed understood the importance of purchasing the materials in Italy, where the supply chain is integrated and excellent.
The meeting we are organizing to launch the 52nd edition of Filo to increase awareness among French operators of the quality of Italian products and companies”. Mr. Monfermoso continues: “This year we add another piece: sustainability.
The road-show will represent the opportunity to present our FiloFlow project for the sustainability of textile products from both an environmental and a social point of view. Filo’s commitment is to make the companies participating in the Show (both as exhibitors and as visitors) even more aware of the issue, in the belief that sustainability is a process which implicates the whole supply chain and it should be taken forward in synergy with the other players of the system, starting from Sistema Moda Italia and Milano Unica”.
Mr. Monfermoso ends by saying: “Our presence in Paris testifies to the desire to continue on the path of growth and internationalization of Filo. However, we are aware that what we have achieved so far comes from teamwork, on the one hand with companies, on the other with institutions, first of all, ITA-Agency, which supports us in the Paris initiative too”.
During the meeting in Paris, as during the following three stages of the road-show, the development product proposals carried out by Gianni Bologna for the 52nd edition of Filo will be presented.
