From the CEOs of leading international gold jewellery companies to the most highly acclaimed and innovative designers as well as representatives from the high management of the sector’s main category associations, with over 370 exhibitors expected to attend. All this will be taking the stage at VOICE – Vicenzaoro International Community Event, the innovative format organized by Italian Exhibition Group live in Vicenza from 12th to 14th September 2020.
In fact, during the three days that the entire sector has so long-awaited and which mark the first physical event after the Covid-19 crisis where an exhibition of the latest products will be combined with a full conference programme, the entire Community will be meeting up with over 100 speakers, either in attendance live in the halls or in real time connection, thanks to an interactive area fitted out with multi-media screens and video cameras.
From Stephen Lussier, CEO of Forevermark at De Beers to Jerome Favier, Vice President and CEO of Damiani Group, and the owners and CEOs of many of the Italian supply chain’s top companies attending VOICE: Marilisa Cazzola and Diego Nardin (Fope), Roberto Coin, Roberto Demeglio, Paolo Bettinardi (Better Silver) to name but a few. And also Maddalena Capra, Head of Sustainability at Pomellato, Eleonora Rizzuto, Director of Corporate Sustainability & Responsibility (CSR) and Ethics & Compliance Officer for Bulgari and LVMH Italy, Isabella Traglio, Vice General Manager of Vhernier. Key players from social communication, such as Laura Inghirami, founder and creative director of Donna Jewel, will also be attending.
A comprehensive look at the state of the industry and future developments, starting from the experience and competences devised by Vicenzaoro, which will boast the involvement of some of the top representatives from the main associations: in attendance, among others, will be Edward Asscher, President of the World Diamond Council, Gaetano Cavalieri, President of CIBJO, Rui Galopim de Carvalho, Vice-President of CIBJO, Enzo Liverino, President of CIBJO’s Coral Commission, Mario Peserico, President Executive Director of the Responsible Jewellery Council, and Beppe Angiolini, Honorary President and Manager of Italian marketing and communication at the Italian Chamber of Fashion Buyers.
But VOICE will also be the ideal stage from which top designers and sector experts, from Alessio Boschi to Lauren Kulchinsky Levison through to Yianni Melas, the explorer gemmologist, will be able to address a physical and virtual international audience.
The show will have three “stage” areas: The Stage of Voice (Hall 7), where institutional events, interviews with the sector’s key players will be held and representatives from category associations will be discussing the jewellery world’s hottest topics (sustainability, innovation, trend & design), VO Square (Hall 6) where educational talks will take place (Digital Talks, Gem Talks and company workshops) and VO+ Corner (Hall 1) which will feature interviews with top management, companies, designers and partners, organized by VO+.
All the physical sessions will also be transmitted live on Voice’s digital platform (website, youtube, Facebook and Instagram).
