VICENZAORO JANUARY GLOBAL AGGREGATOR FOR THE JEWELLERY INDUSTRY
VICENZAORO January 2016 has been an extremely positive occasion, both in terms of the feedback
from exhibitors, buyers, visitors, opinion leaders and trendsetters
from all of the main strategic countries in the sector, and in terms of attendance, as seen in the increasing figures. The highly refined, contemporary context, that was extremely easy to navigate, saw 19,381 buyers, and over 35 thousand visitors, for an overall traffic increase of 5%.
Trade was able to see the new products from 1500 brands from 31 countries and
all of Italy’s gold districts, located in the 9 pavilions of Fiera di
Vicenza, and covering 29000 sqm of net surface. To stress the increasingly international vocation of Fiera di Vicenza, is the 5% growth in the number of overseas buyers, with 8,774 from 130 countries. Italian operator numbers also increased +4.3% for a total of 10,607, a figure indicating possible recovery in the domestic market.
Excellent signals have come from the technology sector, where Made in Italy represents global excellence. When we look at buyers’ countries of origin, we can note the excellent performance of some countries in the Middle East, Egypt, Iran and the UAE,
an area that is one of Made in Italy’s major partners in this sector.
The trend for almost all GCC countries has also been positive.
been strong growth in the number of operators from the USA, confirming the recovery of the American economy. The major European nations (Spain, France, Portugal, Greece, Germany, Great Britain, Holland and Poland) also show growth, while Russia is still showing signs of a shrinking economy. Also showing increases are Israel, India, Thailand, and Australia, as well as many Latin American countries. A drop was recorded in the number of buyers from China and Hong Kong, confirming the slowdown in the Chinese economy. Special attention was reserved to the world of technology.
The event was also the occasion for the 39th T-GOLD,
the most important international show dedicated to machinery and
technology for use in the gold and jewellery industry, located inside
the Evolution district with 133 businesses, of which 111 Italian firms.
