Find Out Why So Many American Jewelers Are Loving Thai Jewelry (and Gemstones)

In his greetings, IEG president, Lorenzo Cagnoni, referred to Italian Exhibition Group’s role as the leading Italian trade show player in terms of the number of shows organized directly and of its own property and announced that this edition of the event, which hosts the most famous international brands alongside the more recent and emerging companies, is totally sold out.

Next was managing director, Ugo Ravanelli, who proclaimed the theme of this year’s show: Sustainable Creativity, which is no longer a trend but, fortunately for our planet, the direction in which the whole sector is decidedly steering towards. “At Vicenzaoro, we will be dealing with the theme in all its aspects and throughout the production chain, in line with the vocation of our show which, also for this reason, is one-of-a-kind in Europe in regards to jewellery.”

The stage was then followed by Silvio Giovine, Vicenza’s councilor for productive activities, who spoke of a synergy between IEG and Vicenza Council aimed at the constant international development of shows within the territory. First and foremost VIOFF, now at its second edition, with a full calendar of events, outlined by the councilor, further enriched this year with a charitable aim to support reforestation on the Asiago Plateau where flooding at the end of October caused heavy damage.

“Favoring the communication of Italian jewelry identity, systematizing and strengthening training and digital activities” are, for Ivana Ciabatti, president of Confindustria Federorafi, the main challenges that the sector needs to face.

Digital evolution and including the younger generation in the world of employment were the topics raised by Carlo Ferro, neo-president of ICE. “We are recording a particular vitality in the use of the Internet as a sales channel and we are directing our efforts in this direction as well as in support for emerging start-ups within the sector that see many young and highly capable professionals investing their skills and aspirations.”

The ceremony ended with the heartfelt wishes for a successful show for all the exhibitors, traders and buyers in attendance.

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.”
