VICENZAORO SEPTEMBER, IEG: THE GOLD-JEWELLERY INDUSTRY’S BUSINESS RESTARTS HERE
With more than 800 participating companies, a third of which from abroad, today saw the opening of Vicenzaoro September The Jewellery Boutique Show, the international gold and jewellery show, organized by Italian Exhibition Group. An edition in the name of re-start, which can be felt clearly among the Vicenza Expo Centre halls, particularly due to encouraging signs from the market, which has already reached pre-pandemic levels with Italian exports up by +2.8% in the first five months of 2021 compared to the same period in 2019 and a 2021 turnover forecast to bounce back by +19.8%.
The gold-jewellery industry has never stopped given that “It knew how to innovate to respond to the ongoing changes and its specific trade shows have shown to be flexible and capable of vision, choosing
to re-start in synergy,” said the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Luigi Di Maio, to sector companies and show organizers in his message of greeting.
The event that was inaugurated this morning in Vicenza confirms its role as a privileged networking venue for sector operators, a place where they are able to restart from beauty and open a new season
under the banner of business and constant innovation.
Exhibitors include the big names in jewellery, from Damiani to Roberto Coin, from Fope to Crivelli and Fabergé, as well as leaders in the field of machinery, back together at T.Gold, the international show
for the most innovative technologies applied to gold and jewellery processing, and top representatives from the world of watches, who will be bringing their own most exclusive pieces to VO Vintage, the
premium vintage watch and jewellery event which starts tomorrow, 11th September, until its closure on September 13th.
The show welcomed an already numerous public, all eager to do business, right from the early morning. From today until Tuesday, 14th September, they will be able to tour the halls in maximum safety thanks
to the implementation of the #SAFEBUSINESS by IEG protocol and GBAC STAR™ accreditation, the global certification program for meeting the international standards of cleanliness, disinfection and
