'Approaches' a success for FILO's 38th edition

Oct '12
The 38th edition of FILO, the International exhibition for yarns and fibres, closed today with a surprise visit from the president of Confindustria Giorgio Squinzi. Squinzi visited the fair accompanied by the manager of FILO, Paolo Monfermoso. The president of Confindustria admired the collections of yarns exhibited on the stands and praised “the entrepreneurial ability based on product innovation, which starting from the textile district has involved the entire sector of Italian spinning. 

The growth potential of our country is undoubtedly tied to the success on the domestic and international market of firms like those participating at FILO, which are primarily small and middle sized firms representing the backbone of Italian industry.

The success of the October 2012 event of FILO is very satisfactory ranging from the growth in the number of exhibitors, reaching more than eighty, to a good flow of visitors thanks to the initiatives of the communication campaign undertaken by the organizers in some European countries of particular interest for the exhibiting firms. 
 
As Paolo Monfermoso, manager of FILO affirms: “In the course of the two days of the event, there was a positive climate and the concluding balance of the 38th edition of FILO proves it through the numbers. The number of visitors was in line with the preceding editions as well as for some exhibitors. The buyers are always highly qualified and their ideas are extremely clear. Hence, there is a continuation of what we call “controlled growth” of FILO. 
 
From the last few editions we have dedicated particular attention to the promotion of the fair on foreign markets, it is with great satisfaction that we welcome the resumption of our collaboration with the new Ice (the Agency for the promotion of Italian companies on foreign markets). This collaboration is based on three fundamental concepts which have always characterized FILO: concrete, professional and efficient.”
 
The central theme of the 38th edition of FILO was “Approaches”. In the trend area, designed for an evocative homage to René Gruau, an artist who in his career was able to blend the most different aspects of creativity. “Approaches” has been modelled according to his various aspects with the product proposals elaborated by Gianni Bologna. The inaugural round table was the occasion for an interesting exchange between “Approaches” that start from a strictly entrepreneurial vision or pure “Approaches” which give more emphasis to the creative aspects.
