The 55th edition of the Filo yarns trade fair, scheduled for 24-25 February 2021 at MiCo - Milano Convention Centre, has been cancelled. The decision was compelled by the decree of the Italian Prime Minister, published on the 14 of January 2021, which suspends, throughout Italy, trade-fairs, events and congresses until at least until 5 March 2021. The provision makes it objectively impossible for the 55th edition of Filo to take place, organisers say.

“Filo is aware of the problems resulting from the decision to cancel the 55th edition of Filo for all the operators involved, but the organization can only comply with the public authorities’ decisions,” they said.

“To cancel the 55th edition of Filo is therefore a decision due to force majeure, taken with great regret. Filo will continue to remain alongside the exhibiting companies in supporting their activities and in promoting the yarns of excellence,” organisers concluded.
