The gold & jewellery sector's first 'international Business workshop' came to a close yesterday in Arezzo registering company and trader satisfaction

Arezzo, 23rd October 2018 – GOLD/ITALY, the gold and jewellery sector’s first international business workshop organized at the Arezzo Expo Centre by IEG – Italian Exhibition Group – came to a close yesterday after three days of work and profitable meetings. 

The indicators of the last edition were confirmed in terms of traders with a considerable increase in the number of foreign buyers, also thanks to incoming activities promoted by IEG - Italian Exhibition Group. The American delegation, led by the attendance of important chain stores, such as SAKS FIFTH AVENUE, MACY’S, JCPENNEY, HELZBERG DIAMOND SHOPS and RICHELINE GROUP, was extremely valid.

The Show’s new format with its digital platform for business matching among exhibitors and buyers, received particular approval from many of the sector’s players.

Eleonora Gori, Vice President of GRAZIELLA GROUP, also agreed that the format was effective. “The new GOLD/ITALY 2018 provides the sector with an on-line platform which is very useful for managing meetings between companies and buyers in this most important season of the year when the Christmas festivities are fast approaching. In this way, you can already have meetings planned on themes of mutual interest even before the Show begins, thus optimizing everyone’s precious time and resources.”

“GOLD/ITALY’s new format is an ideal launching pad for jewellery companies internationalization and is a useful starting point for extending distribution areas into the world and for selecting customer targets, both from the Italian company’s perspective and that of the customer itself. In the future, we hope that a common RETAIL project can be triggered in the world to give new added value to Made in Italy Jewellery,”said Maria Loretta De Toni, President of MARIA DE TONI SRL.
