Trade fair organizer Vicenza Fair is going to hold a jewellery fair in September 10-15, 2005.
In addition to being a fundamental business appointment in the run-up to the Christmas period, when jewelry sales worldwide hit top volumes, Orogemma 2005 will be characterised by the special attention it dedicates to jewelry trends, culminating in the high-visibility “Shapes of Jewelry - Visions” pavilion.
“Shapes of Jewelry” in fact proposes an innovative reading of that visual and tactile universe at the base of a piece of jewelry designed to meet consumer tastes and trends. This event will involve designers, research institutes, trend setters and Italian and foreign organisations, in order to guarantee the widest possible panorama of tendencies and likely developments in design applied to jewelry.
Visitors to this pavilion will be welcomed by the “Trend Lab”, a space put together by the Vicenza Fair and Trends & Jewellery Forecasting using video screens, materials, projects and prototypes to provide all the “coordinates” available for future trends in the world of jewelry. There will also be numerous conventions and encounters for promoting “circulation” of ideas, an indispensable condition for an exhibition with ideas and projects as one of its strong points.
Protagonists at “Shapes of Jewelry” will therefore be trends, creativity and a search for new lines, offering back-up for companies in the production of new collections able to satisfy international demand. The programme for Orogemma 2005 includes, on Saturday 10 September, the award ceremony for the Graduation Thesis Competition promoted by the Gold Jewellers Section of the Province of Vicenza Industrial Association and the Trissino Oro Competition dedicated to gold jewelry design. On Sunday 11 September in the Palladio Room, CNA ASNAART and Confartigianato will be hosting the international watch sector meeting, while Monday 12 sees a presentation of new business prospects abroad for the gold jewelry sector by the Banca Popolare di Vicenza.
