UBM’s Delhi Fair Sees 25% Growth In Ex­hibitors

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

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.
