Prelude To IIJS 2017: A Spectacular Curtain-raiser
The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) in partnership with the Diamond Producers Association (DPA) presented the first-ever Prelude to IIJS 2017, a B2B fashion showcase event on July 26th 2017, at Hotel Grand Hyatt, Santacruz, Mumbai. Fifteen leading jewellery manufacturers showcased their exquisite jewellery collections specially created for the 34th India International Jewellery Show (IIJS). The audience comprised Indian and international buyers, traders, wholesalers, distributors and retailers. The Prelude was powered by BVC Logistics and supported by Shilpi Jewellers, Royal Chains, and Gemmological Institute of India (GII). Praveenshankar Pandya, chairman, GJEPC, said, “Prelude to IIJS 2017
is a new format that is focused on showcasing the best jewellery collections of IIJS 2017 to a select group of prominent buyers from India and abroad. As the Indian gems and jewellery industry strives to reach new pinnacles of success, Prelude to IIJS 2017 gives retailers, wholesalers and distributors an opportunity to select exclusive jewellery designs precisely crafted with the best technical know-how. “In sync with GJEPC’s Mission 2022 strategy, Prelude showcases trendsetting Indian craftsmanship, design capital and capabilities to the world. With IIJS becoming bigger and busier every year, Prelude allows the global trade to get a preview of jewellery fashion style and trends for this season and also sets the foundation for one-to-one interactions, discussions and deliberations prior to the commencement of the biggest international jewellery trade show in the world.” During Prelude, the DPA officially launched its generic diamond promotion campaign for India.
