Market performance, trends, sustainability and training at Vicenzaoro September
The new products, the premiere of the new Trendbook 2024+, the industry's commitment to sustainability and training, the state of the art of the market. These are the main themes that will enrich Vicenzaoro September - The Jewelery Boutique Show in the Vicenza fair district from September 9 to 13, 2022.
The share of exhibitors will be close to pre-Covid levels, with the Far East also returning to the show. HK and China, India and Thailand are up compared to March, despite the restrictions still present. Buyers from all over the world will also return to Vicenza thanks to the incoming program activated with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the ICE Agency. This way, business matching will also be restarted on distant markets.
Thursday 9 September will therefore enter the heart of the event and all its events.
So much anticipation for the presentation of the new The Jewelery Trendbook 2024+, which reveals the consumer trends and trends in the sector together with the previews of Trendvision, the independent IEG observatory directed by Paola De Luca that explores the evolution of consumers of the world of luxury. The forecast will look at emerging phenomena over a period of time that covers the 18 months following publication and will be built on the keywords that characterize social and consumer changes and which consequently also enter the language and objectives of the gold and jewelery sector.
Vicenzaoro is also an opportunity for the Industry to analyze production and market data. Club degli Orafi Italia and Intesa San Paolo's Studies and Research Department present “The Italian goldsmith sector. A complex and uncertain scenario": a meeting that will analyze the trend of the national goldsmith-jeweler supply chains, the international demand for precious stones, the effects of international crises and US monetary policies on the accessibility and cost of raw materials.
In the first quarter of 2022, compared to the favorable progression of Italian exports in 2021 to the US, Chinese, Swiss and UAE markets, the Italian goldsmith sector strengthened growth on international markets with variations of more than 30% both in value and in quantity, enough to exceed the data of 2019 by 9%. On the other hand, we must face a setback in the global demand for precious items recorded in the first three months of this year, down to -6.9% (source: Centro Intesa Sanpaolo Studies).
The commitment to sustainability, gender equality and young talents will instead be the focus themes of the two seminars of CIBJO, the World Confederation of Jewellery. Specifically, a focus on the need for new marketing models more attentive to gender equality, through an analysis of the message and the dynamics of the purchase of diamonds, which have always spoken an exclusively male language, as purchased and given by man. A paradigm to be rethought, today, in the light of the freedom of choice of the female public.
Vicenzaoro Spetember will also be an international reference point for design: in collaboration with the Anversa HRD laboratory, Vicenza will host a Jewelery Design competition with which IEG confirms the attention to talents and the training of young goldsmith designers with seminars dedicated.
Vicenzaoro September will therefore see the participation of all the voices of the sector, institutions and trade associations, from Confindustria Federorafi, Confartigianato Goldsmiths, Confcommercio Federpreziosi, CNA Orafi, Confimi Industria Goldsmith and Argentiera category to Assogemme, Assocoral and AFEMO - Association of Manufacturers Exporters of Machinery for Jewellery, which contribute to the agenda of the event and to the talk program being defined for the five days of the Italian Exhibition Group's international jewellery and goldsmith show.
