Vicenzaoro January: 70 years of goldsmithing excellence

The Jewellery Boutique Show had opened the celebrations for 70 years of jewellery events in Vicenza. Over 1,300 exhibiting brands from 37 countries had gathered at the fairground, with 40% coming from international exhibitors and about 600 buyers from 72 countries. The event had been supported by the network of ICE offices around the world. Vicenzaoro had been a global meeting point for the jewellery industry, offering trend previews and events combining innovation, information and training. T.Gold, dedicated to jewellery technology and machinery, had opened together with Vicenzaoro January. In addition, there had been the VO Vintage marketplace dedicated to fine vintage watches and jewellery. At the opening ceremony, several illustrious guests were present, including the President of the Italian Exhibition Group, the President of the Veneto Region and other institutional and industry representatives. 

The Minister of Enterprise and Made in Italy, Adolfo Urso, had sent a message emphasising the importance of the Italian goldsmith sector and announcing initiatives to promote the industry and education in the sector, including the establishment of Made in Italy Day on April 15th each year. Italian Exhibition Group President Maurizio Renzo Ermeti had celebrated Vicenzaoro's 70th anniversary as a significant milestone, especially considering the challenges faced during the pandemic. He had highlighted the record dimensional growth achieved in 2023 despite the difficulties. With all exhibition spaces occupied and the expected visit of more than 130 countries, the event had been considered universal. Ermeti had attributed the recent results to the strategic vision in the gold and jewellery sector, which had transformed Vicenzaoro into the most prestigious fair in the world. He had announced an investment of around Euro 60 million, financed entirely by the company, for a new 22,000 square metre pavilion that would radically change the layout of future events, thus planning the future of the event for the next 70 years.
