GJEPC Postpones IIJS Signature 2021 Jewelry Show
Here’s what else is happening with the international events calendar.
The event was originally slated for April 7-12 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre but has been pushed back “for the safety of (its) exhibitors and vendors,” according to a statement on the GJEPC website.
The organization said it is monitoring the situation regularly and will announce new dates “very soon.”
The show is focused on Indian jewelry manufacturing, showcasing finished goods from about 800 exhibitors.
GJEPC said the 2021 event would have been its first large-scale jewelry trade show organized since the onset of COVID-19.
It joins another big organizer, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, in recently postponing event dates as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
The HKTDC just announced its Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show and the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show will now be held July 25-29.
The shows were moved from their original dates of July 2-6 after consultation with industry representatives and key stakeholders, organizers said at the time.
Both fairs will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre as opposed to the previously planned venue, the AsiaWorld-Expo center.
HKTDC didn’t hold either in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions and has postponed them a few times in 2021.
More details about the change are expected to be provided to exhibitors in “due course,” HKTDC said.
Meanwhile, in Italy, the Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) is planning on holding its Oroarezzo event, devoted to jewelry made in Italy, at the Expo Centre in Arezzo from June 12-15.
It also still has planned the T.Gold, VO Vintage, and Vincezaoro shows—for machinery and other technology, vintage jewelry and watches, and the entire supply chain, respectively—for Sept. 10-14 in Vicenza.
Also this spring, Informa Markets will hold the Istanbul Jewelry Show from May 27-30 at the CNR Expo center.
