In the jewelry world, the year kicks off with Vicenzaoro, organized by the Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) and held January 19–23, 2024, in Vicenza, Italy, about 30 miles outside Venice. The international jewelry exhibition celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2024.
An unmissable opportunity for the jewelry community, Vicenzaoro is the longest-running B2B event in the sector and central to the agenda of the global gold and jewelry industry. This business, networking, training, and information platform, also known as the Jewellery Boutique Show, welcomes representatives from the entire supply chain.
Taking place concurrently with Vicenzaoro will be T.Gold, an international show dedicated to goldsmithing technologies and machinery. Returning for its fifth edition is VO Vintage (Jan. 19–22), an event—open to the general public—for enthusiasts and collectors of vintage watches and jewelry.
Europe’s Largest Business Hub for the Gold and Jewelry Industry
Vicenzaoro in January 2024 will offer buyers from all continents the largest jewelry, gold, and watch business hub in Europe. The event showcases high-end suppliers of jewelry, gold, diamonds, precious gems, and colored stones, as well as excellent work from the Made in Italy manufacturing districts and product previews from the best international players. Also featured are providers of materials and services for the industry, such as components, semi-finished pieces, packaging, visual merchandising, and contemporary watchmaking with distribution. T.Gold adds technological innovations for manufacturing and processing to the mix.
A Show for Trends and Industry Issues
Vicenza will be the capital of the jewelry world in January, not only for the offerings on display at Vicenzaoro—including newly launched collections from exhibiting brands—but also as a center of debate on trends and the evolution of the sector. Trendsetters, experts, and thought leaders will meet to discuss the most important industry issues and to define the agenda as a community of companies, buyers, operators, institutions, associations, and members of the media.
TRENDVISION Jewellery + Forecasting, created in collaboration with Vicenzaoro as a permanent independent research center, tracks sociocultural phenomena in art, architecture, and fashion while uncovering the underlying connections in the jewelry, watch, and luxury goods sectors.
Buyers at the Center of the Vicenzaoro Experience
Registration is now open for the next Vicenzaoro, which welcomes buyers from every continent with dedicated services to enrich their experience and optimize business opportunities. The Vicenzaoro Luxury Hubs allow attendees to enjoy the best hotels in the area with free travel connections to the exhibition. The online platform “The Jewelry Golden Cloud” (also available as an app) is dedicated to business matching, coordinating the agendas of exhibitors and attendees even before the fair begins. The platform includes a complete catalog of exhibitors, an interactive plan of the pavilions, streaming of talks with simultaneous translation, and useful functions for parking, getting around the city, and enjoying the extraordinary historical, artistic, cultural, and culinary richness of Vicenza and its surroundings. From the aperitif at the trade show at the end of the day to the events of ViOff, the out-of-show event in the city center, Vicenzaoro offers unique networking opportunities.
VO Vintage: Open to the Public for Four Days
Fine vintage watches and jewelry also return to Vicenza from January 19 to 22 for VO Vintage. Open to the public in the exclusive foyer on the first floor of the IEG exhibition center, this consumer event, now in its fifth edition, has carved out an important space for collectors, enthusiasts, and watch lovers in search of special timepieces. The top dealers will be on hand, along with experts and opinion leaders taking part in talks, in-depth seminars, training workshops, and technical update sessions.
