Italian Exhibition Group launches Vo Vintage centered on vintage jewelry and watches together with VicenzaOro January. It will be open to the public ♦ ︎
Jewels and vintage watches. Collectible jewelery and watches. Jewels and watches that fill the spaces. Italian Exhibition Group has thought about how to expand the VicenzaOro business, a leading event that, however, suffers from the economic situation and some defections (less than Baselworld, however) among the historic jewelery companies. Unlike VicenzaOro, which is dedicated to sector operators, the area for vintage jewelery and watches will be open to the public. The idea could also be related to the postponement of the Sihh at the end of April, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie which until last year took place in Geneva almost simultaneously with VicenzaOro. And that by 2020 is planned from 25 to 29 April.
The novelty consists of Vo Vintage simultaneously with VicenzaOro Jenuary. The new exhibition area is scheduled from Saturday 18 to Monday 20 January 2020, a shorter time span than VicenzaOro January (17-22 January). The idea is to attract enthusiasts and, of course, companies active in jewelery and vintage watchmaking. For example, there will be Verga Vintage’s master watchmakers who will fix prestigious period clocks live and historic collectors like Sandro Fratini, who boasts a collection of 2 thousand watches for an estimated value of 1 billion euros.
Also present at Vo Vintage will be the main institutions of the sector, such as Assorologi, which for years has been fighting on the themes of the intellectual property against counterfeiting and the trade of fakes, the prestigious Ahci, Académie Horlogère des Créateurs Indépendants, which brings together the greatest masters independent watchmakers from all over the world, Orologi & Passioni the main forum of enthusiasts in Italy. Vo Vintage will be organized in the foyer of the first floor of the fair, “in an exclusive and reserved context”.
