Lorenzo Incagli, responsible for coordinating the activities in Italy and abroad of Feel the Yarn, comments: “Tradeshows are important in establishing new relationships and launching collaborations, shortening the distance between producers and buyers, and expansion of our network. The positive results of the tradeshow have been achieved by hosting the exhibition in a relaxed environment, supported by the convenient location and elegant surroundings of Church House Westminster. Moments of conviviality during breakfast breaks, lunches, or an aperitif at the end of the day make important exchanges possible. Safety was managed in an efficient way following the latest Covid guidance and the tradeshow was not impacted by any limitations.”.
Federico Gualtieri, President of the Yarn Promotion Consortium (CPF) comments: “The success of this edition has gone far beyond our expectations, not only for the number of subscriptions from companies in the sector, to which some knitwear factories have also added, but above all for visitors. In fact, all the main fashion brands belonging to the markets of the countries chosen for the presentations sat at the tables to view the collections. A result of sure value, which allowed exhibitors not only to implement the strategies of internationalization and marketing of their products but also to open the way to new partnerships and collaborations to be developed already in the short and medium-term.”.
