Foro Imagen at MOMAD and Madridjoya
The other program dedicated to presentations, talks and conferences will be held between Madridjoya and MOMAD. Specifically, it will be located in the area connecting Halls 6 and 8 of IFEMA MADRID. This Forum will begin a whole series of interesting subjects that are relevant to both sectors, where fashion and jewellery meet.
With subjects starting with sustainability in fashion and jewellery, operating and improving business and sales, development and manufacture of jewellery or historical projects where fashion and jewellery are hand-in-hand, this forum is a key complementary tool for all professionals in these sectors who visit the Exhibition Centre.
As a brief summary, the program will begin on Thursday the 3rd, when the Bisutex and Madridjoya fairs start, with the Instituto Gemológico Español presenting "methodology in a gem laboratory: evaluation, certificates and opinions”. This will be followed by Escuela de Arte3 and their presentation “a centre with its own identity in the teaching of Jewellery, Goldsmithing, Artistic Silversmithing and Artistic Torch Firing Enamel on Metal”. Thursday continues with the presentation by the Spanish General Council of Sales Agents on increasing sales capacity, “Sales agents are still essential to your successful selling in times of digitalisation and COVID”; and ends with sustainability and fair sourcing “connecting with responsible mining communities” by Fairmined.
On Friday the 4th, the presentation schedule begins with the company Zalando, with two sessions to connect fashion inventory with millions of clients, focusing on the Partner Program and the Connected Retail program. The next presentation, by CONESE, will focus on the slogan “the circular economy for #fashionwithpurpose”. Afterwards, and with sustainability as the main element, Modaespaña will host a Round Table to talk about sustainability as a strategy in the fashion world. Following its agreement with MOMAD, AICI will then present “the power of image consultancy for a personalised shopping experience”. The last events of the day are Tabata Morgana, to present a historical view through jewellery with the Denisova Project; and Beatriz Biagi Design, with the conference “it all begins with a rough draft”.
On Saturday, the conferences will focus on sustainability and the new tools and digitalisation in the fashion and jewellery sector. An example of these are the themes by Modaespaña, on digitising the value chain, Engine Software and the keys to customer services, or Modaespaña along with Baylos, to discuss online and offline protection for fashion brands and designs. Within the framework of sustainability, the Association of Sustainable Jewels will offer a discussion on sustainable jewellery, Hemper will give the presentation “from sustainable fashion to regenerative fashion”, and CONESE, sustainable energy is fashionable. In addition to these presentations, we will see the Mediterranean Fashion Beach MFB and the presentation of the Finalist Designers of the National Swimwear Fashion Competition New Fashion Talents of Spain 2022 and Victorio&Lucchino and Spanish fashion by Declaraeditores.
