Fiera di Vicenza to consider floating on Milan Bourse

26 february 2016
Italy’s Fiera di Vicenza, which organizes the annual VICENZAORO jewelry show, mulls listing its shares on the Milan Stock Exchange.
According to Rapaport, Fiera di Vicenza’s board of directors was considering the move at a meeting of shareholders on February 3.
A stock-market flotation is “supported by strategic and economic objectives,” the statement said. A further shareholders’ meeting will be held to discuss methods and strategies for listing.
Meanwhile, VICENZAORO January saw a 5-percent increase of foreign buyers and overall good results. During 6 days, 19,381 buyers visited the 9 pavillions of the fair, which hosted 1,500 brands from 30 different countries. Most of the increase comes from the Middle East, the Arabian Peninsula and the United States, while less buyers visited the fair from China and Russia.
As a result of this process of internationalisation, VICENZAORO increased the number of high-level international events held at the show.
