The hosiery supply chain will be in the Brescia exhibition center from 27 to 30 May (at the moment the event is confirmed, ed.) at Fimast 2020, the international B2B, event of reference for the two Italian sector districts: Brescia for the textile machinery for hosiery and Mantua for yarns and hosiery.
The biennial appointment, which has been acquired by the Italian Exhibition Group since last year, will be an opportunity for Italian and international operators to discuss key issues and main market trends.
The evolution of the Italian districts in the coming years will mainly be at the center of Fimast 2020: from technological and product innovations such as seamless, also extended to the technical sports sector, to the development of the healthcare segment. There will also be the knitted shoe, that is the “sock shoe” which has given way to a new closer connection between footwear and hosiery.
Fimast 2020 confirmed the presence of hosiery factories. In fact, the formula that IEG has chosen this year focuses on collaboration with two fundamental observers for the hosiery sector: the Centro Servizi Calza and the Associazione Distretto Calza e Intimo. With the collaboration of the two bodies, the update meeting program opened to all operators visiting Fimast will be developed.
Among the issues faced up by Fimast 2020, sustainability is at the top of the current and future challenges of companies in the fashion and accessories sector, as a starting point for a new development of Fimast, in support of the entire system to meet all the needs of an increasingly global market and of increasingly aware and attentive consumers.
In addition to a new approach to the contents offered to Italian and international buyers, Fimast 2020 will present itself with a renewed layout to encourage business meetings between operators in the sector. The collaboration with institutions, sector magazines and universities will complete the event’s calendar of the event to enhance matchmaking opportunities
