Vicenza Fair, CIBJO Develop Program on Social Responsibility

The Vicenza
fair and CIBJO are developing a joint program to promote corporate social
responsibility in the international jewelry industry.

The development of a CSR program involving CIBJO will become
a critical component of the fair’s longterm development strategy.

The five-year plan, which is scheduled for completion in
2015, is designed to consolidate Fiera di Vicenza’s role as not only a key
player in jewelry exhibition, but also as a venue for disseminating ideas
and information.

“Corporate social responsibility will be an integral
part of the jewelry business in the markets of the future,” said Dr.
Roberto Ditri, president of Fiera di Vicenza, in a statement. “Younger
consumers are motivated not only by fashion sense, craftsmanship and design
excellence, but also by purchases that are personally meaningful.”
