UBM’s inaugural Kolkata jewellery show hosts 160+ exhibitors

News this week: UBM’s subsidiary, UBM India, recently concluded the inaugural edition of its Kolkata Jewellery & Gem Fair (KJGF) in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal. The three-day trade show attracted more than 160 exhibitors and approximately 7,000 visitors at the Milan Mela Exhibition Complex in Kolkata.

The new show took place from 11th to 13th January 2014 and was held in association with the Calcutta Gem & Jewellers Welfare Association (CGJWA). UBM India’s portfolio of jewellery shows in India also includes events in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Gujarat, and New Delhi.

Kranti Nagvekar, group director of UBM India, commented, “We are thrilled on receiving such a response from the industry and look forward to conduct several such events in future. The gem and jewellery industry should tap Kolkata since many are unaware of the potentiality of the artisans here.”
