The Ital­ian Ex­hi­bi­tion Group spa (IEG), the new trade show com­pany cre­ated through the merger be­tween Ri­mini Fiera and Fiera di Vi­cenza, re­ceived pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion in New York, when it was awarded for­mal ac­cred­i­ta­tion through CIBJO, the World Jew­ellery Con­fed­er­a­tion, from ECOSOC, the United Na­tions Eco­nomic and So­cial Coun­cil, for pro­mot­ing and im­ple­ment­ing ac­tiv­i­ties re­lat­ing to cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) along the jew­ellery and pre­cious metal and gemstone sup­ply chain.

Rep­re­sent­ing the IEG at the meet­ings with se­nior United Na­tions of­fi­cials at the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s head­quar­ters in New York, to­gether with CIBJO pres­i­dent Gae­tano Cava­lieri, were IEG’s vice ex­ec­u­tive pres­i­dent Mat­teo Mar­zotto and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Cor­rado Facco.

IEG’s ac­cred­i­ta­tion at ECOSOC is pri­mar­ily ex­pressed through ac­tiv­i­ties con­ducted at Vi­cen­za­oro, among the world’s lead­ing gold and jew­ellery shows, which have been stead­fastly com­mit­ted to dis­sem­i­nat­ing the val­ues and prac­tices of CSR within the in­ter­na­tional jew­ellery in­dus­try for sev­eral years al­ready, and has also be­come an au­thor­i­ta­tive and recog­nised in­ter­locu­tor on a global scale.

Mat­teo Mar­zotto com­mented, “We feel highly hon­oured by this recog­ni­tion, which rep­re­sents fur­ther con­fir­ma­tion of the sta­tus that our group and Vi­cen­za­oro has achieved, thanks in par­tic­u­lar to the fruit­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion with CIBJO, in spread­ing the cul­ture of CSR, with its so­cial and eco­nomic im­pli­ca­tions, along the en­tire sup­ply chain. As a con­tem­po­rary provider of ex­hi­bi­tion ser­vices and con­tent, we are con­stantly en­gaged in cre­at­ing value for our stake­hold­ers, a task that, nowa­days, can­not help but pay con­sid­er­able at­ten­tion to sus­tain­abil­ity and re­spon­si­bil­ity. CSR is a fun­da­men­tal as­set for the jew­ellery sec­tor too, not only rep­re­sent­ing the right eth­i­cal di­rec­tion that should be fol­lowed by com­pa­nies, but also as a con­scious and strate­gic strat­egy for gen­er­at­ing con­sumer loy­alty.”
