The LBG team has returned from a truly amazing and successful trip to Italy for ABOUT J and VICENZAORO!
ABOUT J is an elite, invitation-only event that took place in Venice on September 4-6 and featured 34 exhibitors, 126 retail companies (197 buyers) from 39 companies. The action packed VICENZAORO show took place in Padua on September 6-9 and featured 1,200 exhibitors from 30 foreign companies. Both events boasted beautiful, on-trend jewelry that brought retailers, buyers and press together to experience gorgeous jewels in this incredible country. 

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 Paola de Luca. During their free time, the LBG/US Team and retailers roamed the winding alleys of Venice and the quaint town of Padua, all while feasting on mouth watering pizza and pasta - it's hard to believe this was considered "work"!
Beautiful Venezia!
