Fiera di Vicenza Venue
The JTF has always been considered a unique educational opportunity in Italy as it represents a chance for direct contact between Research and Development and the gold sector operators.
A piece of jewellery is not only a product of the gold jewellery industry, it’s the result of a complex production process which starts from a study of social trends, is interpreted by the taste and creativity of the designer, and is transformed and takes concrete shape thanks to the technology applied.
During the forum the participants can meet important experts and researchers, and discuss particular aspects or problems with them. After the forum, anyone who wishes to make use of the information can consult the conference proceedings edited and distributed by LEGOR GROUP SpA. “Without education and without coming face to face, there is no growth, but growth requires innovation which in turn stems from knowledge… often the solution is already there but we don’t know where: every year JTF and Santa Fe’ Symposium publish the conference proceedings with the clear and precise objective of ensuring that this knowledge can be used by everyone”. This is the belief of Massimo Poliero, JTF Chairman, who has been supporting this event since 2004, challenging indifference, distrust and the crisis in the sector, and hoping to make a contribution to the spread of learning.
The JTF owes its success in recent years to the active collaboration between Italian Exhibition Group and Legor Group SpA. As we see it, outside collaboration in organisation of the Forum must represent the interest of both the district and the sector associations in spreading the culture of technological innovation.
The JTF aims to demonstrate the commitment of the leading institutions in the gold jewellery sector to supporting, in concrete terms and with all the resources available to them, the development of new successful strategies for the gold and silver jewellery firms.
The CPV sponsorship supports the research of some of the speakers who present their results at the forum and promotes subsequent meetings for further discussion with the JTF speakers.
