Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai debuts in February
JGT Dubai, which will take place in attendance at the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC), will be a significant catalyst for the entire industry poised for its next growth.
“We are thrilled to kickstart the global jewellery event calendar with a premier marketplace featuring best-in-class exhibitors in Dubai, one of the most exciting cities in the world,” says David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia. The three-day show will bring together suppliers from Belgium, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Israel, Singapore, Turkey, the UAE and other key sourcing destinations.
“This B2B show will feature distinct showcases highlighting core product categories, with each section offering buyers opportunities for discovery and engagement, and the chance to get a head start on their 2022 sourcing requirements. Together with Italian Exhibition Group and through our collective efforts with DWTC, we are creating a productive environment where our community can get back to business safely and confidently,” Bondi continues.
Jointly organised by Informa Markets Jewellery and the Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), JGT Dubai has received wide industry support, including that of official partner, DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodities Centre); industry partner, the Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group (DGJG), and trade associations.
The enthusiasm for this new B2B event was also expressed by buyers, retailers, wholesalers and brands from the Middle East, Eastern Europe and South America who signed up for JGT Dubai's Hosted Buyer Program and who see the show as an opportunity to find a well-curated mix of finished jewellery, loose diamonds, precious stones, jewellery parts and components, technological solutions and equipment.
"It is with great pride that we are preparing to turn the spotlight on JGT Dubai, an event that is making its debut on the annual calendar of international jewellery events, representing a strategic business multiplier in the Middle East area for the sector’s global players," says Corrado Peraboni, CEO of Italian Exhibition Group. "The community's expectations reward the efforts that led IEG and Inform Markets Jewellery to establish a concrete and winning synergy that will allow the entire jewellery supply chain to make an even further leap in quality on international markets."
Tawhid Abdulla, Chairman of the Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group, also expresses his enthusiasm for the new exhibition “We are certain that JGT Dubai will grow to be one of the most sought-after events in the annual calendar for jewellery enthusiasts and businesses around the world. Our congratulations to the organizers for making this dream a reality”.
JGT Dubai will also take place during the largest cultural event ever organized in the Middle East, Expo 2020 Dubai, which runs until March 31, 2022, and will be enriched by two world-class gatherings: the highly anticipated Dubai Diamond Conference organized by DMCC and the Jewellery World Awards (JWA) presentation ceremony of Informa Markets Jewellery.
