After a recent meeting of Fiera di Vicenza’s board of directors, changes have been announced for the 2017 VicenzaOro International Gold and Jewellery Shows.
Due to increased interest in international distribution (expressed at the 2016 show), VicenzaOro January (January 20 to 25) will be expanded. The January show will be the industry’s first international trade show of the year, offering a showcase for new collections after a busy holiday season.
Two of Italy’s major trade shows are joining forces. Fiera di Vicenza and Rimini Fiera have received board approval to merge. The deal is expected to become official by the end of the year following their respective shareholders’ meetings.
Two Italian trade show organizers may be merging and taking the new company public. Fiera di Vicenza—which operates the VicenzaOro events—and Rimini Fiera have signed a letter of intent to look into the feasibility of integrating the two companies and forming a national trade show organizer.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is no longer an option in today’s business environment, but is instead, a requirement. That’s the message delivered at a seminar held at VicenzaOro. Sponsored by CIBJO and Fiera di Vicenza, the show’s organizer, the panel discussion focused particularly on the coloured gemstone sector.
Attracting 13 per cent more visitors than last year and opening under the theme, ‘The Future. Now,’ VicenzaOro’s layout has been completely changed to better help buyers find what they are looking for and get the most out of their visit.
