VicenzaOro September 2022, sparkling optimism rules among jewelry buyers and exhibitors.

VicenzaOro September 2022, sparkling optimism rules among jewelry buyers and exhibitors.

I will admit that when leaving property and heading in direction of the chaos of Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, I wondered what I would come across in Vicenza. The news that hits us every day is pessimistic more than enough:


  • Soaring energy price ranges
  • &#13

  • Russia is pinching the Nord Stream traces
  • &#13

  • The War in Ukraine carries on
  • &#13

  • Housing troubles
  • &#13

  • Absence of staff members in just about just about every sector 
  • &#13

But then there are also enormous difficulties in every offer chain, not to point out the several humanitarian crises close to the globe, from the flooding in Pakistan to the ongoing stream of refugees (and a rising reluctance to welcome them).

As a sector, we are susceptible to crises. We are a luxury product or service enterprise and, for that reason, in any provided crisis, relatively redundant.

I stared into the practice window, heading to Amsterdam, observing the cows in the flat Dutch fields and thinking about how Netherlands farmers have been protesting for months. The determination of the Dutch federal government to slash down nitrogen emissions by fifty percent in 2030 implies that quite a few farms (and their livestock) have to shut to preserve mother nature. And how could I not backlink this to the lots of talks I have been listening to, in the course of the previous editions of VicenzaOro, about sustainability? It will come with a price when we never prioritize sustainability, a selling price we can not afford. But let’s also respect the price tag lots of folks and corporations shell out for sustainable objectives.

I was cautious, but the visitor confirmed an educated optimism! So certainly, I was fired up to go to the show but envisioned to come across a a little cautious temper on the floor. But from Friday on, it was booming! Lots of booths, specially in Corridor 7, had been performing like mad. Nanis was crowded from working day a single, and so ended up a lot of many others.

But 1st, enable me acquire you inside of by means of the entrance doorway! The set up suitable next to the entrance was glittering gold, inviting individuals to take selfies like mad. Yours really, being awfully modest at the completely wrong moments, did not want to hold out in line, and you are going to obtain beneath my happy but not a very glamorous selfie -)

Loud audio pumps up our mood and anticipations, and walking onto the ground feels like stepping into a movie. I swear I heard someone yelling at me ”and action”! -)

September isn’t really about new collections in normal. While some models have produced new jewellery parts, it can be mainly an evolution of patterns previously presented in January. VOS22 (VicenzaOro September 2022) is about purchasing for the impending holiday getaway year.

But, while beforehand very prudent, some Dutch vendors did occur to me to check with me for jewellery brand tips that would do the job in the Netherlands. So, indeed, individuals are also on a path to discovery in the course of this end-of-summer jewellery clearly show in the gorgeous town of Vicenza.  

What stood out for me all through this VicenzaOro show? 

1st of all, the temper, as explained previously mentioned. It was just so optimistic. Or possibly it is much better to explain it as educated optimism. Buyers weren’t worried to splash out on factors, but they mainly bought products they know will provide all through the future getaway time.

Of training course, as a blogger and journalist, which I am throughout these displays, I don’t see everything people today buy. But I was fortunate plenty of to accompany a couple Dutch stores and saw how they looked for stable chains with glamorous information and unique items that would fulfill their eclectic clientele. 

I will not see lots of ”smaller mid-portion stores” from my very own state. Perhaps I am mistaken I have no immediate insight, but it appears that as well lots of mid-section stores don’t spend in coming to displays like VicenzaOro. Why is that?

I know there are fears of wondering they are way too small to buy a collection straight. I also know that Italian providers however wrestle with the image of not being the most reputable out there. 


Sporting Alessio Boschi

That is a mistake, in my feeling. This display is so perfectly arranged, uncomplicated to arrive at, and accommodating to overseas visitors that any objection about the problem and carrying out company with Italians flies out the door.

If not for buying anything, any retailer, everyone doing work in jewellery, should come to a jewellery display like VicenzaOro at least as soon as a yr. And why?

Mainly because of the frustrating inspiration, a single feels walking around the booths. It is not about inspiration to copy layouts, but inspiration about how people today from the smallest to the most notable business reimagine jewellery in all various sorts of strategies. 


It is about going for walks and talking jewelry the full bloody time, and that interaction, that listening to viewpoints, concepts, and insights from so a lot of distinct people today, is a large inspiration. 

Permit on your own the (often) thrilling talks on stage. I really feel there could be loads additional of them, and I see possibilities for workshops and far more in the long run. But there is normally some thing heading on stage!

As a writer and blogger, I truly feel energized going to a exhibit like this. Most of our task is carried out guiding a laptop or computer in our very own houses. We need this, far too, to fill up our cup and, with renewed enthusiasm, distribute the like for jewelry among the our admirers, followers, and audiences in general. If nearly anything, I would like to advise to both corporations and fairs to keep inspiring and involving us (bloggers, journalists, influencers, and every thing in amongst).

I also know that watch brand names, to identify an business quite shut to ours, are significantly far better at undertaking this with hosted invites to brand name situations and in-dwelling visits. I suggest, critically, we just really don’t all are living inNew York, London, Paris, or Milan 🙂 

VicenzaOro is the one display that not only produces a magical entrance, an superb platform for undertaking organization, and an unbelievably accessible party but also seeks – with excellent reliable dedication- to contain individuals who are like the bees of the jewellery field. We fly all in excess of the show and take our insights and inspiration to the keyboards of our laptops, pollinating social media platforms with bits and drops of details and inspiration. All to elevate the curiosity in jewellery to a greater amount (b2b and ultimate consumer). The dream workforce of VicenzaOro exhibits how useful they feel this is for the total field by inviting a assortment of push and influencers. Everybody is accomplishing their very best to emphasize how superb this clearly show is and demonstrates illustrations or photos of brand names and jewelry.

For the Dutch trade magazine, I sat down with Marco Carniello, the global director of Manner and Jewelry exhibitions for IEG.

He advised me that the figures have been up by 10% regarding the pre-Covid calendar year 2019. WOW!  

Also, the selection of people today going to the exhibit from abroad is up by 20%. 

But the true SCOOP is that IEG plans to open up two far more jewellery trade shows overseas: South The us and South East Asia. 

Also, there are concrete strategies for a superior-velocity coach with a end in entrance of the showground! In five yrs, this ought to be completely ready, building this particular trade present even much more uncomplicated to arrive at.

Previous but not the very least, following calendar year, by the conclusion of 2023, the display intends to start off renovations of the oldest central section and expansion of the buildings.

  • Booths can be adapted once more to the brand’s flavor I hope NO A single returns to closed booths. This unfriendly, unwelcoming phenomenon disappeared throughout the COVID decades. I love the approachable, considerably much more human connection of the open up booth.
