CIBJO General Assembly postponed to March 17 and 18, 2022


CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation, announced that the General Assembly, originally scheduled for 24 & 25 January has been postponed to 17 & 18 March 2022 in the Vicenza Exposition Centre, Vicenza, Italy.

Following the decision of the Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) to postpone the VICENZAORO show in January due to the increasing number of confirmed cases of Covid-19, CIBJO made the announcement to reschedule its General Assembly. As a closing session of the 2021 virtual CIBJO Congress from November 4 to 8 and November 15 to 18 last year, the CIBJO General Assembly will take place in a hybrid mode allowing delegates to participate in person or online. In a letter to the IEG’s Board of Directors, CIBJO President Gaetano Cavalieri said, “under the new circumstances, IEG has generously offered to host a rescheduled CIBJO General Assembly session at its show in March, providing the same facilities that it would have done in January”. Since they are facing the same issues such astravel and public safety that may change unexpectedly, Cavalieri believes accepting what IEG has offered works best for them. Two seminars about responsible sourcing, social activism and sustainability will be organised at the VICENZAORO show.
