Undoubtedly, this event will open a new chapter, offering plethora of business opportunities, in the international jewellery market. Building on the success of 2015, this edition will set a precedence, which will help further strengthen the position of Vicenzaoro Dubai as one of the world’s most important networking platforms for jewellery, gold, precious stones and diamonds on the international stage.
Vicenzaoro Dubai brand is a joint venture between Fiera Di Vicenza and Dubai World Trade Centre. Their collaboration is being facilitated by DV Global Link. Corrado Facco, Managing Director of Fiera di Vicenza, told Emirates Business, “With Dubai’s growing status as one of the world’s foremost luxury destinations, driven by strong domestic and regional consumption coupled with increasing international visitor spend, Vicenzaoro Dubai is all set to further strengthen the region’s strategic importance on the global luxury industry stage and establish Vicenzaoro as one of the world’s top five events for the international B2B jewellery and goldsmith sectors by 2020.”
Last year, Vicenzaoro event drew around 6,000 regional and international visitors from more than 110 countries. Expected visitors at the 2016 show will represent the best that the sector has to offer, showcasing Dubai as the main entry point into jewellery’s most important markets. It will include independent retailers, jewellery chains, large department stores, wholesalers, importers and exporters, manufacturers, designers and professional associations.
Commenting on the success of last year’s Vicezaoro, Facco said, “Dubai, the undisputed jewellery capital of the Gulf, was a natural choice for the event, and we’re looking forward to build on the success of last year’s show. Dubai has proved to be a great success venue for us so far. We are looking forward to continuing to build on the momentum and further cement Dubai’s reputation as a
leading global trading hub for gold, jewellery, gemstones and diamonds. Jewellery is our passion, so we are excited for what the future holds and are proud of the success
Vicenzaoro Dubai has afforded so far.”
Over the last years, demand of luxury items in the Middle East has continued to surge and this has been clearly evident in the corridors of Dubai, which holds the coveted status of ‘City of Gold’ in the region. Dubai also boasts of a clear understanding among various players active in jewellery industry as they thoroughly understand the intricacies of this trade. Over the years, much emphasis has been given on fostering new connections and global links. Therefore Vicenzaoro Dubai Show certainly promises an extravagant affair to look upto.
One of the ultimate goals for Vicenzaoro Dubai Show is to unite some of the world’s main players in the jewellery industry and provide them with access to strategic markets. It will serve as a key networking platform to foster relationships and make connections with those in the jewellery business, whatever their background and expertise. The exhibition will give a voice to the most significant aspects of the gold and jewellery sector with specific attention to the new features at Vicenzaoro Dubai Show and its development at international levels. Importantly, it will also provide a unique opportunity to bring the industry community together. Learning about the latest trends in fine jewellery and the opportunities for doing business in different markets will afford exhibitors and attendees with unique strategies for growth.
