Triumph, innovation, and records in the world of jewelry.
The edition of Vicenzaoro January 2024, celebrated with enthusiasm in the city of Vicenza, has surpassed all expectations, solidifying its position as a global reference point in the goldsmith and jewelry sector. Excellence Magazine is proud to have been once again a media partner for this prestigious event.
With a 3% increase in visitor attendance compared to the previous year, the “boutique show” by the Italian Exhibition Group has set new records in the Vicenza exhibition district. Moreover, at this edition, six out of ten visitors come from abroad, emphasizing the growing international attendance at the fair. Vicenza, with its prestige, is destined to remain at the center of the global jewelry market also for the next 70 years.
In response to this increasing demand, the Italian Exhibition Group has initiated the construction of an innovative new pavilion of 22 thousand square meters. This initiative will introduce a new layout to the Vicenza Expo Centre for the September 2026 edition, demonstrating a constant commitment to the evolution and expansion of the fair.
The main international showcase of innovation, T.Gold, recorded a 4,7% increase in attendance. This sector presented the most advanced technologies for goldsmithing and the latest applications in gold and jewelry, in collaboration with A.F.E.M.O.
The success of VO Vintage in the timepiece segment is consolidated with a 22% increase in exhibitors. Open to the B2C public, this space dedicated to vintage watchmaking and jewelry attracted collectors, experts, and enthusiasts, highlighting a growing interest of 13%.
Vicenzaoro witnessed the renewal of generational turnover in the job market, with a particular focus on industry and education. 23 schools, mainly from Italy, France, Germany, and the U.K., participated in the event, involving approximately 750 students and accompanying personnel. The VIOFF, the off-site event of Vicenzaoro, further engaged students through over 20 scheduled events.
Starting from 2025, the Italian Exhibition Group will enrich its Jewellery Agenda with a new international event: “The Vicenza Symposium.” From September 2nd to 4th, the event will inherit the scientific legacy of the “Santa Fe Symposium,” closed in 2022. This biennial event, oriented towards problem-solving for companies, stems from a collaboration with two leading companies in the T.Gold sector: Legor and Xolutions.
Successfully concluding the current edition, Vicenzaoro invites all enthusiasts and industry professionals to attend the next edition, scheduled from September 6th to 10th, 2024. It will be a unique opportunity to delve into innovation, share experiences, and strengthen connections in the fascinating world of goldsmithing and jewelry.
