FAST 2005 To Present New Hosiery Innovations

This year's edition of FAST - a tradeshow first held in 1995, devoted to the entire hosiery production chain from fibers to production to marketing  -will take place March 16-19 at the Verona Fiere exhibition center in Verona, Italy.

Organized by Eventi Moda S.r.l., Milan, the show is expected to attract more than 180 exhibitors and more than 14,000 visitors.

"What makes FAST the leading show in the sector is the fact that Italy is still the heart of innovation for products and the production process," said Luisa Pandolfi, event director. "Even FAST is innovative. It is a trade fair that is able to develop with the sector [and] interpret the needs of entrepreneurs, and knows how to combine business needs with spectacular elements."

In addition to the exhibition, FAST 2005 also will offer workshops and special events including a presentation of new fashion trends coordinated with Paris-based Peclers Studio, and workshops covering the potential of seamless hosiery.

A new fashion area will be offered to showcase manufacturers and their hosiery and seamless products. The FAST Gala Dinner will be held Thursday, March 17, at the historic palazzo La Gran Guardia.
