CIBJO Congress coinciding with VicenzaOro ‘Charm’

CIBJO Congress 2012 is headed to the northern Italian town of Vicenza.
Fiera di Vicenza is set to host the 2012 CIBJO Congress next May, welcoming representatives from across the jewellery and gemstone industries.

Held from May 17 to 20, congress will coincide with VicenzaOro’s ‘Charm,’ which runs from May 19 to 23.

“We are privileged to have been invited to hold our 2012 Congress in Vicenza, not only because of the critical position the city plays in one of the world’s most important jewellery-producing countries, but also because of Fiera di Vicenza’s role in serving the interests of our international business,” said CIBJO president Gaetano Cavalieri.

“Fiera di Vicenza has been an important supporter of the World Jewellery Confederation for many years already, and this past January conducted a workshop at the VicenzaOro ‘First’ show in corporate social responsibility (CSR) together with CIBJO and our World Jewellery Confederation Education Foundation (WJCEF).”

Roberto Ditri, president of Fiera di Vicenza, reiterated the fair’s dedication to advancing the interests of the jewellery industry.

“Our aim is provide a commercial, intellectual, and strategic platform upon which the jewellery industry, both in Italy and around the world, will evolve and grow,” he said. “CIBJO is a standard-bearer in all of these areas, and its deep involvement in CSR education has brought us even closer together. The holding of the 2012 CIBJO Congress in conjunction with our trade show VicenzaOro ‘Charm,’ which highlights the best of Italy and of the world, will enrich both events.”

Congress serves as a forum for CIBJO’s professional commissions, as well as the venue at which its diamond, coloured stones, pearl, precious metals, and gemmological laboratory Blue Books are discussed and updated.
