Italian Exhibition Group recognised at United Nations
NEW YORK, January 2017 – The Italian Exhibition Group Spa (IEG), the new trade show company created through the merger between Rimini Fiera and Fiera di Vicenza, received prestigious international recognition in New York on January 12, when it was awarded formal accreditation through CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, and from ECOSOC, the United Nations Economic and Social Council, for promoting and implementing activities relating to Corporate Social Responsibility along the jewellery and precious metal and gemstone supply chain.
Representing the Italian Exhibition Group at the meetings with senior United Nations officials at the organisation’s headquarters in New York, together with CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri, were IEG’s Vice Executive President Matteo Marzotto and Managing Director Corrado Facco.
IEG’s accreditation at ECOSOC is primarily expressed through activities conducted at VICENZAORO, among the world’s leading gold and jewellery shows, which have been steadfastly committed to disseminating the values and practices of CSR within the international jewellery industry for several years already.
IEG, which from January 20 to 25, 2017, will be putting its mark on this year’s first edition of VICENZAORO, has inherited the role played by Fiera di Vicenza, and is about to embark on its own mission to contribute directly to ethical, environmental and corporate social responsibility policies, under the ECOSOC umbrella.
