Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

Reg­is­tra­tion has opened for par­tic­i­pa­tion in the firstever edi­tion of the Bharat Di­a­mond Week at the Bharat Di­a­mond Bourse (BDB) in Mum­bai, In­dia. The BDB ex­pects thou­sands of vis­i­tors from In­dia and abroad to take part in the April 23-25 in­ter­na­tional di­a­mond week. The BDB said that 200 In­dian com­pa­nies will be ex­hibit­ing pol­ished di­a­monds to buy­ers from across the world.

“The in­ter­est in the Bharat Di­a­mond Week con­tin­ues to rise far be­yond our orig­i­nal pro­jec­tions and this is ex­tremely pos­i­tive,” said BDB vice pres­i­dent Me­hul Shah, who is head­ing the pro­ject. “We be­lieve that there will be around 4,000 vis­i­tors. Our aim is to cre­ate con­nec­tions be­tween our in­ter­na­tional friends and col­leagues and Bharat Di­a­mond Bourse mem­bers.

“This is go­ing to be an event that will need to be held on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. There is a very clear de­mand both from ex­hibitors and from vis­i­tors,” Shah said, adding that the BDB will be book­ing around 200 com­ple­men­tary ho­tel rooms in or­der to host for­eign buy­ers who will be tak­ing part.

BDB pres­i­dent Anoop Me­hta said: “Our col­leagues from abroad are as ex­cited as we are at the prospect of this in­ter­na­tional di­a­mond week. The de­mand is clearly there. We be­lieve it is crit­i­cal for the BDB and for the in­ter­na­tional trade that an event such as this is held. The in­dus­try is fac­ing var­i­ous chal­lenges and we are de­lighted to be able to or­gan­ise an event that we be­lieve will lead to great con­nec­tions.”

The Bharat Di­a­mond Week will also fea­ture a dis­play of syn­thetic di­a­mond de­tec­tion equip­ment with com­pet­i­tively priced ser­vices, to­gether with spe­cially or­gan­ised sem­i­nars and meet­ings on the is­sue of syn­thet­ics, Shah said.
