News this week: UBM Asia has announced the results of its inaugural Gujarat Jewellery and Gem Fair 2014 (GJGF). Held in late November at the Gujarat University Convention and Exhibition Centre, the exhibition was organised in cooperation with the Gem & Jewellery Trade Council of India (GJTCI).
The exhibition featured nearly 130 exhibitors from all 29 Indian states. Visitors and exhibiors covered a wide range of industry players: jewellery wholesalers, retailers, exporters, importers, manufacturers, diamond and gemstone suppliers and government trade organisations.
UBM’s managing director in India, Joji George, commented, “India is one of the world's largest and fastest growing gem and jewellery markets and Gujarat accounts for almost 80% of the diamonds processed in India; it is a business advantage that Gujarat has over other regions. UBM India is proud to partner with GJTCI to host our maiden show in Gujarat which will not only strengthen our dominance in the jewellery sector but also add to our India footprint with successful established shows in Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad and Kolkata.”
