Oroarezzo Will Be Back in 2021

IEG intends to offer opportunities and visibility for the very best of Made in Italy manufacturing.




(PRESS RELEASE) AREZZO, ITALY – The difficulties caused by the health crisis are persisting for the international markets, with harsh restrictions enforced by some foreign countries of reference and, above all, the uncertainty of regular flight connections from the coming month of July. Under these conditions, there is no guarantee that foreign buyers will be able to travel to Italy and Tuscany and holding Oroarezzo 2020 in the best circumstances cannot be ensured. IEG – Italian Exhibition Group, in conjunction with the sector’s manufacturing and association representatives, has therefore decided to schedule the show only in 2021, since conditions are not yet ripe for offering customers the complete and high standard of international buyers that has always been guaranteed to a highly valuable market for the country.

However, in postponing the traditional edition of Oroarezzo to 2021, IEG – which, since the beginning of the crisis, has always maintained direct relations with the companies, associations and the Arezzo territory – intends, in any case, to offer opportunities and visibility for the very best of Made in Italy manufacturing and, at the same time, to support jewelry companies in the post lockdown phase.

For this reason, “Oroarezzo On Stage” has been created, a virtual window onto client companies’ creations, which will allow exhibitors to reinforce their on-line presence and provide visibility on the global markets. Companies will be assisted in compiling professional photographic shoots for a catalogue enhanced by photos, videos and news regarding the products.

The value for Italian districts and the Arezzo area will still be central, thanks to the Premiere competition which, under the leadership of Beppe Angiolini, Honorary President of the Chamber of Fashion Buyers and Art Director at Oroarezzo, will be presented in a digital edition brimming with content. In 2020, the initiative which, at Arezzo, traditionally celebrates Italian jewelry manufacturing ability, will become Premiere Digital Edition and will be dedicated to jewelry that symbolizes reprisal, exploiting the potentialities of on-line communication, social networks and the reverberation of the entire city by installing videos that will trace a route through the Arezzo streets.

On 9th June, Angiolini will launch the title of the 2020 competition during a direct transmission on Instagram.




Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
