MILAN — Milano Unica, the Italian textile-accessories trade show, closed the 8th edition of Milano Unica China on Thursday in Shanghai.
The three-day event ran from Tuesday to Thursday with 94 exhibitors, who presented their fall 2017 collections to about 4,000 visitors, up three percent compared to October 2014 figures.
Silvio Albini, president of Milano Unica for eight seasons, passed the baton to his successor, Ercole Botto Poala, who was appointed in September.
“I conclude my term today, at a trade show that once again has confirmed its appeal to the top-end Chinese market,” said Albini, adding: “The positive outcome of Milano Unica VIII demonstrates that even a more demanding market can find answers among the textile-accessories proposals of our exhibitors.”
“It is an honor for me to take charge beginning today,” declared Botto Poala, who added that he is looking forward to expanding and improving the work of past presidents together with the presidential committee and general manager. “We will soon present a series of novelties to our increasingly international and more qualified market,” he said.
