International Baltic Jewellery Show "Amber Trip"
"Amber Trip" is the largest specialized international jewellery show in the Baltic states. This is an event that found a unique place in the cultural map of the world. This international exhibition is counting its second decade and brings together hundreds of jewellery companies and designers from around the world to the capital of Lithuania. That is why Vilnius is rightfully called the jewellery capital of the Baltic Region.
Due to the ever growing number of participants, "Amber Trip" show will change its location in the spring of 2017 by moving to Litexpo - the largest exhibition and conference centre in the Baltic states. "Amber trip" show will have significantly more opportunities to grow in this modern centre that provides larger exhibition and conference spaces. Up to now, the international jewellery show was held in one of the largest hotels in the capital "Radisson Blu Hotel Lithuania", however these facilities became too small for the event. The first "Amber trip" show invited its participants and visitors to gather in the city hall – the very heart of Vilnius Old Town.
The XIV international jewellery and amber show "Amber Trip 2017" will take place on the 8–11 of March, a week earlier than announced by the organizers. The jewellery show calendar will also enable to commemorate two important dates: March 8, the International Women's Day, and March 11, the Lithuanian Restoration of Independence Day.
"Amber Trip" is the most important annual event to the entire jewellery community. The show attracts professional jewellers and designers, production organizers and practitioners, representatives of the jewellery industry and manufacturers of technological devices and equipment. 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.
Each year, the event is attended by jewellery and amber business representatives from various countries of the world: The Baltic states, Poland, Turkey, Italy, Ukraine, Russia, USA, Japan, India, and even the Kamchatka Peninsula. Around 40 percent of the exhibition's area is used for presenting jewellery works and around 60 percent – exclusively for amber.
