Growth in number of exhibitors & visitors at FILO

Mar '12
The 37th edition of FILO, the international exhibition of yarns and fibers, closed. The outcome of the March event was very satisfying: from the growth in the number of exhibitors to over 80 to the good attendance of visitors, all of this also thanks to the communication initiatives undertaken by the organization in some European countries, especially those of interest for the exhibitors.

As Paolo Monfermoso, the manager of FILO affirms: “The overall assessment of this edition of FILO is positive. The visitors were in line with the preceding editions and the exhibitors commented that the buyers were always well qualified with extremely clear ideas. Hence, we have what we refer to as “controlled growth” at FILO.

This is certainly not a great moment for the European economy, but it is a reconfirmation for FILO as an ideal business platform for those companies favoring high quality products and research. It is also recognition for the entire event, which has always been inspired by three basic concepts: concrete, professional and efficient.”

These concepts were reiterated in the theme chosen for the 37th edition of FILO: “Skill Games”. The theme was played out in its various aspects both in the trend area, with the product proposals elaborated by Gianni Bologna, and in the discussions of the inaugural round table, which underlined the ability and the passion with which every entrepreneur executes his daily tasks. In the textile-clothing system made in Italy, the concept is emphasized by the complete cycle and in the will to overcome difficult times by aiming for product excellence.

As Alessandro Ciccioni, president of the Group of Young Entrepreneurs of Unione Industriale Biellese commented: “After the year 2011 which marked a growth for the spinning compartment, 2012 emerges with greater prudence. In this context it is FILO that gives a sign of optimism, by counting on a growing number of exhibitors. It is an outcome that rewards the choice of the international fair aiming at the high quality of the products on display, synonymous of innovation and creativity.” The comment by the guest of honor Elio Fiorucci was aimed at the young, designers and entrepreneurs, whoever they might be. Elio Fiorucci said: “The young are not asking for help, but they are asking for freedom of expression with the least amount of bureaucratic red tape possible.”

Satisfaction for the results of FILO was expressed by Roberto Rimoldi of Filatura Luisa: “The fair went well and we had a good number of customers, especially on the first day. The winter season is obviously the best one for us because we are wool spinners. Among the novelties which we proposed in this edition, were fancy yarns in our stock service, which were greatly appreciated, not only by the buyers with whom we already do business with, but also with a considerable number of new customers.”

Vincenzo Caneparo of Davifil also confirmed the positive performance of the event: “We did good business with numerous qualified buyers. We are beginning to see the results of the efforts of the internationalization that FILO has initiated in the last few editions. The fair is beginning to have a very definite aspect making it an event not to be missed. As for the products, we have aimed above all for the naturals, with mixtures of wool/hemp and hemp/cotton. In the collection dedicated to home furnishings, we proposed a thread of jute, presented in typologies of a delavè waxy yarn. This enables us to unite the economic advantages of jute and the comfort of jute, without the roughness which has penalized this fiber in the past.”
