As every year, in spring, the International Baltic Jewellery Show "Amber Trip" will invite everyone to Vilnius, the jewellery capital of the Baltic states.
Lithuania XV International Baltic Jewellery Show "Amber Trip"
"On the XV anniversary year of the show we expect to receive nearly 200 participants from the Baltic states, Poland, Turkey, Italy, Ukraine, Russia, USA, India and other countries.
"We will also have at least half a thousand of important buyers (wholesalers, museums, collectors) from around the world – Europe, Australia, China, India, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, USA and other countries. This would be a record number of participants and buyers", – says "Amber Trip" organizer Giedrius Guntorius.
The only jewellery event in the Baltic states is attended by professional jewellers and designers, as well as manufacturers of technological equipment and devices.
The event includes the presentation of the latest jewellery industry technologies, trends in the amber jewellery and crafts market, and the latest works of professional jewellers around the world.
Around 60 percent of the exhibition's area is used for presenting jewellery works and around 40 percent – exclusively for amber.
The show is an exclusive platform for transactions, international agreements and economic forums. Forums organized by "Amber Trip" are attended by the most important suppliers of raw materials in the world which come from Russia, Ukraine and Poland.
During the forums, relevant issues regarding raw amber supply, jewellery hallmarking and other issues arising from the countries are addressed. "Amber Trip" has already become a bridge that connects Europe with other countries around the world.
Seminars on relevant topics related to jewellery and amber are also held during this exclusive event. During the seminars, insights are shares by experts from both Lithuania and other countries around the world.
"Amber Trip" is also unique due to its international jewellery art contest which, each year, receives jewellery works from at least 50 different countries around the world. The theme of the art contest of the XV anniversary jewellery show is "Nothing to declare".
The theme of the contest was inspired by the 100th year of the day of restoration of the state of Lithuania.
"The 16th of February is the most significant date in the history of Lithuania. "Amber Trip" will announce the 100th year of the day of restoration of the state of Lithuania to the whole world with exclusive events and pleasant surprises, – says G. Guntorius.
"Amber Trip" event, which attracts more and more participants, buyers and visitors each year, will be held in the largest exhibition and conference centre in the Baltic states "Litexpo" for the second year. ■
