The VicenzaOro January fair ended yesterday, having hosted more than 1,500 firms and 18,532 buyers. Those from foreign countries numbered 8,361 (from 122 different nations), with domestic attendance totaling 10,171 persons.
Show organizer Fiera di Vicenza told the press that there was an increase in attendees from the Balkan area, central eastern Europe, Mediterranean-area nations, and some parts of the Middle East. Dubbed the Boutique fair, the floor plan of the January edition offered color-coded sections of exhibitors grouped according to size and distribution, allowing buyers to shop the show more efficiently.
VicenzaOro Dubai takes place April 23–26, and VicenzaOro September occurs Sept. 5–9.
