Qatar Today - - INSIDE THIS ISSUE -

Vis­i­tors at the 15th edi­tion of the Doha Jew­ellery and Watches Ex­hi­bi­tion got an op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire new knowl­edge through the first DJWE Fo­rum, daily ses­sions and work­shops.

The 15th edi­tion of the Doha Jew­ellery and Watches Ex­hi­bi­tion ( DJWE) con­cluded with lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ex­hibitors com­pet­ing to at­tract vis­i­tors. Or­gan­is­ers an­nounced that more than 21,000 vis­its were made dur­ing the event, which took place at the Doha Ex­hi­bi­tion and Con­ven­tion Cen­ter (DECC) from Fe­bru­ary 21-26, 2018.

Held un­der the pa­tron­age of the Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter of In­te­rior, HE Sheikh Ab­dul­lah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani, the ex­hi­bi­tion saw more than 490 in­ter­na­tional brands rep­re­sent­ing a wide va­ri­ety of lux­ury watches and jew­ellery. The ex­hi­bi­tion also provided vis­i­tors with the op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire new knowl­edge through the first DJWE Fo­rum, daily ses­sions and work­shops that dis­cussed top­ics re­lated to the jew­ellery and watch in­dus­try.

Com­ment­ing on the show's con­clu­sion, Ahmed Al Obaidli, Ex­hi­bi­tions Di­rec­tor at Qatar Tourism Au­thor­ity, said: “DJWE is a true model of suc­cess, sus­tain­abil­ity and de­vel­op­ment. Over the past 15 years, the ex­hi­bi­tion has suc­ceeded in re­in­forc­ing its po­si­tion on the global cal­en­dar of jew­ellery events as ev­i­denced by the at­ten­dance of top ex­ec­u­tives of ma­jor brands at the show. The in­crease in ex­hi­bi­tion area, vis­i­tors, side events and sales are all tes­ta­ments to the ex­hi­bi­tion's suc­cess.” He added: “This re­mark­able per­for­mance is thanks to the sup­port provided by His Ex­cel­lency Sheikh Ab­dul­lah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani, Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter of In­te­rior, to busi­ness events and the tourism sec­tor as a whole in pur­suit of a more di­verse na­tional econ­omy.”

The huge ex­hi­bi­tion space at the DECC has al­lowed fine jew­ellery shops in Qatar to show­case their collections in their pavil­ions, of­fer­ing vis­i­tors a fas­ci­nat­ing jour­ney of art, el­e­gance and her­itage.

Awn Zureikat, Chief Op­er­a­tions Of­fi­cer - Ali Bin Ali Lux­ury, said: “We are proud to be part of this year's edi­tion of Doha Jew­ellery and Watches Ex­hi­bi­tion, held un­der the pa­tron­age of His High­ness Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar, and His Ex­cel­lency the Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter of In­te­rior Sheikh Ab­dul­lah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani.

“Ali Bin Ali Lux­ury has been one of the first part­ners of the ex­hi­bi­tion since its in­cep­tion 15 years ago. Every year we re­ceive an in­crease in the num­ber of vis­i­tors and at­ten­dees. We take pride in in­tro­duc­ing new brands with prod­ucts that are shown for the first time in Doha.”

Pro­mot­ing and sup­port­ing young tal­ents, the ex­hi­bi­tion wit­nessed the re­turn of the Young Qatar De­sign­ers ini­tia­tive, where six Qatari de­sign­ers par­tic­i­pated and pre­sented their unique and ex­clu­sive collections to com­pete with the world's most fa­mous brands.
