In-Person Vicenzaoro Show Slated To Return This Fall
Slated for mid-September, it’ll be Europe’s first major live jewelry trade show since the start of the pandemic.
Vicenzaoro September The Jewellery Boutique Show is scheduled for Sept. 10-14 at the Vicenza Expo Centre, the Italian Exhibition Group announced recently.
Taking place alongside Vicenzaoro will be two other jewelry shows, one of which has added an area devoted to new watches: T. Gold and VOVintage.
The T.Gold show (Sept. 10-14) focuses on machinery and other technology used in jewelry design and manufacturing. It normally takes place in January but was pushed to later in the year due to COVID-19.
VOVintage (Sept. 11-13), which is open to the public as well as the trade, features vintage jewelry and watches and will include a new area for contemporary watches as well.
Vicenzaoro will also feature sessions on style and design trends, some of which will be livestreamed. More details on those events are forthcoming.
IEG said it expects the shows will attract buyers from all over the world, particularly given the progress being made on vaccinating populations in Europe and key countries in the Middle East.
At the shows, it will implement the health and safety plan it developed in 2020, known as #SAFEBUSINESS. The plan includes longer hours to reduce crowding, crowd flow management, more contactless payments, and the availability of hand sanitizer and masks all over the show.
IEG also noted it has earned the Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s STAR accreditation, which is given to organizations that meet international standards for cleanliness, disinfection and infectious disease prevention for facilities and staff.
The return of an in-person Vicenzaoro show will take place shortly after the major U.S. shows return to physical form.
