UBM’s Delhi Fair Sees 25% Growth In Exhibitors
Leading jewellers, import and export merchants and key industry associations will congregate in the capital city for the seventh edition of the Delhi Jewellery and Gem Fair (DJGF), hosted by UBM India. Scheduled from September 29th to October 1st, at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, the fair will showcase some of the newest trends in the gem and jewellery industry.
The event is recognised as an integral part of the jewellery sector by associations and the industry at large, with support from eminent associations, namely, The Bullion & Jewellers Association, Delhi Jewellers Association, Maliwara Jewellers Association, and Karol Bagh Jewellers Association.
The three-day fair has more than 700 participating brands, a growth of 25% compared with last year, reflecting its growing stature as north India’s biggest jewellery trade show. The 6th edition of DJGF in 2017 saw a growth of 54% in unique visitor footfalls.
This year, the expo will hold seminars on gemstone identification, synthetic diamonds HPHT and CVD, diamond assortment and valuation, and diamond grading to trading. The fair seeks to be an unmatched platform for sourcing, conducting business, exchanging knowledge and market trends and most importantly, boosting the morale of a sector that has seen a fair share of volatility in recent times.
Yogesh Mudras, managing director, UBM India, said, “The gems and jewellery industry has acquired prominence over the years in the country, given its dual utility of improving aesthetics as well as investment. Jewellery has always had a cultural connect owing to the diversity of the country, and thus, its usage is rooted in geographical traditions.
“With its expertise in the jewellery portfolio globally and across India in multiple cities such as Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and two new shows in Chennai and Mumbai this year, UBM India is perfectly poised to organise the 7th edition of the Delhi Jewellery and Gem Fair.”
DJGF 2018 will also witness the fourth edition of the Retail Jewellers Guild Awards, a unique initiative by UBM India through which excellence and efforts of individuals and organisations in the retail jewellery business are recognised and honoured on a pan-India level.
