As a body dedicated to advancing the interests of the jewellery business, Fiera di Vicenza's support for CIBJO is natural extension its central mission, stressed the trade fair organiser's President, Dr. Roberto Ditri. "Our aim is provide a commercial, intellectual and strategic platform upon which the jewellery industry both in Italy and around the world will evolve and grow. CIBJO is a standard bearer in all of these areas, and its deep involvement in CSR education has brought us even closer together. The holding of the 2012 CIBJO Congress in conjunction with our trade show VICENZAORO Charm, that highlights the best of Italy and of the world, will enrich both events."
