VicenzaOro Sees Increased Attendance in March 2022…
International trade fair VicenzaOro, which closed on March 21, announced a 24% increase in attendance from its September 2021 show. Originally scheduled for January, this most recent show was postponed until March as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Over 1,000 exhibiting brands—including more than 140 at T.Gold, the international exhibition for machinery and advance technologies applied to gold and jewelry design—were in attendance at the event, as well as 300 hosted buyers, students, designers, schools, institutions, and media. The show featured five days of business, shows, training, roundtables, and more.
International participation from 127 countries—Spain, Germany, the United States, Greece, and France among them—accounted for 53% of attendance.
