Arezzo gold companies take part in VICENZAORO Dubai
AREZZO, Italy, April 2016 – A select group of companies from the gold district of Arezzo joined the second edition of VICENZAORO Dubai taking place from April 14-17, 2016, in the World Trade Center in Dubai.
This was the first time that Arezzo gold companies, as well as companies from other areas of Tuscany, which brought top products from their collections, exhibited at the Dubai event.
“This presence is the first result of the new ‘Vicenza-Arezzo’ axis, which takes shape in the Middle East and has been organised with the support of Arezzo Fairs and the cooperation of the Arezzo Chamber of Commerce and the ITA/ICE,” a statement from Arezzo Fairs said.
“The Arab market is undergoing a period of stagnation which, due to the complex political situation in this zone, is reflecting negatively on our businesses,” said the president of Arezzo Fiere, Andrea Boldi. “But this remains the primary and the most strategic market for the ‘Made in Italy’ brand.
“Hence, in times of crisis it is necessary to safeguard this situation with unrivalled events such as VICENZAORO Dubai. I am confident that soon this event will be the most important opportunity for the presence of Italian firms in these markets.”

For this edition of VICENZAORO Dubai, about 500 exhibitors are expected from Italy, India, the UAE, Turkey, Hong Kong, the USA, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Jordan and Europe.
Dubai represents a unique opportunity for companies in the sector to gain privileged access to the key markets of the Middle East, an important region for gold demand.
