VICENZAORO Winter 2015 in Vicenza, Italia

Fiera di Vicenza does it again! The LBG team has returned from another AMAZING and successful VICENZAORO January 2015 trip.

The action packed VICENZAORO show took place in Vicenza, Italia on January 23-28, and featured over 1,500 exhibitors, from various parts of the world, showcasing their beautiful on-trend jewelry to over 33,000 visitors throughout the six days of the show. 

U.S. retailers had the opportunity to not only peruse the latest collections from designers they typically don't have direct access to, but they also attended the always-informative TRENDVISION Jewellery + Forecasting "Buying Trail" Seminar for the U.S. Entourages, presented by Creative Director, Paola de Luca. Also, in comparison to the 2014 shows, there was a 13% increase in buyer attendance! 

During their free time, the LBG/U.S. Team and retailers roamed the winding alleys of Vicenza, and the quaint town of Padova, all while feasting on mouth watering pizza and pasta - it's hard to believe this was considered "work"!

Check out the photos from the trip below!
