The first of the series will take place on Monday, May 25 2pm, Monday, 25th May at 2 pm, with Trendvision presenting a focus on emerging consumer trends with particular attention on the Asian markets. The Jun 8 webinar will provide a preview of the company’s renowned Jewellery Trendbook 2022, whilst also exploring the long-term effects of the ongoing global health crisis and consumer values, while July 6 will deal with the concept of the ‘new normal’ and how to redefine classic products.
Space will also be given to the thousand facets of stones on May 28, June 17 and July 15 with a new series of Gem Talks, one of the most highly-appreciated formats at the more recent editions of Vicenzaoro which, thanks to the consolidated collaboration with IGI, manages to amaze by explaining the origins and peculiarities of both the more common and the more mysterious gems.
