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 Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
