1,500 brands will be exhibiting at Vicenzaoro January – representing the entire production chain – organized into communities based on positioning and target to make it easier for traders and buyers from over 130 different countries to tour the show.

The event will opened with the much-awaited seminar organized by CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, entitled “Size is important. Responsible, sustainable supply and SMEs”.

VISIO.NEXT, also was staged on the opening day, offering an overview of the Made in Italy jewellery industry with the support of Club degli Orafi Italia and the direct involvement of three of its members, Bulgari, De Beers and Vhernier, in a partnership that strengthens Italian Exhibition Group’s role as an innovation and development platform at the service of sector companies. 

Open until 22 January, VOJ is the first event of the year for the gold-jewellery sector as well as the most awaited and exclusive stage for viewing top market brands’ latest creations. 

T-GOLD, the international Show for jewellery machinery and the most innovative technologies applied to gold and jewellery processing, will be staged at the same time and both events will run until the 22. 

This year, the Vicenzaoro January programmes has been further enriched with VO VINTAGE, an innovative and elegant marketplace specifically for vintage watches and jewellery with some of the most unique and coveted pieces and rarities in the world. VO VINTAGE will involve 30 world famous exhibitors. And not only: the new format will also include interventions from the greatest collectors, such as Sandro Fratini, and the most esteemed and well-known experts, like Giulio Papi, the most famous master watchmaker in the world.

There will also be room for innovation and the younger generations. In fact, during Vicenzaoro January, the 40 winners of ‘The Gold Run’ hackathon, devised by IEG in collaboration with Padua University and open to 60,000 students and researchers, will also be awarded.  A call for ideas aimed at imagining new ways of wearing and wrapping jewellery, thanks to cutting edge production technologies and unprecedented packaging. The winning ideas will be submitted to an advisory board consisting of companies and key sector players.
