· From 8th to 12th September, Europe’s leading business hub and showcase for the entire industry: market innovations and design trends with the new “The Jewellery Trendbook”.
· Watchmaking reaffirmed at the show with the “Time” community, a b2b area for contemporary timepieces. Instead, VO’Clock Privé (8th-10th September), a lounge for enthusiasts and collectors in the foyer on the first floor of the Expo Centre, will be open to the public.
Vicenza, Italy – Vicenzaoro is all sold out for the September edition. The gold, jewellery and watch community’s most eagerly awaited event in Europe will be back from 8th to 12th September with the entire exhibition area of Italian Exhibition Group’s Vicenza Expo Centre already fully-booked as of June.
IEG’s b2b trade show will bring the sector’s present and future to Vicenza with the most important companies, buyers, operators, institutions, trade associations and media.
Next September’s edition will also look back at the history of the event with a countdown to Vicenzaoro’s 70th anniversary to be celebrated in 2024.
THE ENTIRE GOLD AND JEWELLERY SUPPLY CHAIN IN VICENZA Vicenzaoro September is a stage for the best expressions of the sector and the entire gold and jewellery supply chain as well as a showcase for Made in Italy production from the main national manufacturing districts and international excellences. The variety of the offer is expressed through the industry’s different souls: from high-end jewellery brands in the “Icon” community to the best jewellery production, components and semi-finished products in the “Creation” district; from the diamonds, precious and coloured stones in “Essence” to the contemporary jewellery in the “Look” district, the latest innovative solutions for packaging and visual merchandising in the “Expression” community and the most advanced technologies for production and processing in the “Evolution” area.
FOCUS ON WATCHMAKING: THE “TIME” B2B COMMUNITY AND VO’CLOCK PRIVÉ All eyes will be on the world of watchmaking at Vicenzaoro: after its debut in January 2023, the “Time” community, integrating the event’s product range with an area dedicated to contemporary watches, will be further consolidated. Amid the latest market offers and technical and design innovations, the B2B focus will be on independent brands and micro-brands with considerable potential that want to expand their presence in jewellery store windows. The event will extend further to the timepiece supply chain with some of the best component and accessory producers, from packaging to straps and “private label” manufacturers.
On the other hand, VO’Clock Privé, the elegant lounge dedicated to watchmaking culture, will be open to the public from 8th to 10th September. In a reserved area in the foyer on the first floor of the Expo Centre, it will gather together for its second edition the most sought-after brands and a public of enthusiasts and collectors, offering a programme of meetings and technical courses with the sector’s most authoritative experts (specific communication to follow).
JEWELLERY TREND OBSERVATORY A business hub for the sector, but also a privileged observatory of the latest trends in style and design, Vicenzaoro September will be presenting a world preview of the new edition of The Jewellery Trendbook. The guide, produced by Trendvision Jewellery + Forecasting, IEG’s independent observatory on the world of jewellery, investigates emerging phenomena, the social panorama and the global evolution of jewellery consumption in order to develop the sector’s business in the near future.
INDUSTRY THINK TANK Not only trends but also new ideas, best-practices and educational debates on the hottest topics of the moment will be the focus of an eagerly awaited and stimulating schedule of talks, seminars and workshops, making Vicenzaoro September a veritable industry think tank with the contribution of experts, opinion leaders and trendsetters. A moment of encounter and inspiration for the international jewellery community.
