India jewellery show expands with new hall

This year’s India International Jewellery Show (IIJS) is set to host more exhibitors with a new hall added to the Mumbai location.

Organised by the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) and running from 9 to 13 August, the show’s expansion means an additional 800 booths have been made available to suppliers, with 150 new exhibitors joining the event for the first time.


“India’s jewellery manufacturing has come of age and is widely acclaimed as a reliable and competitive source for retailers and consumers from across the world.”
Pramod Argawal, GJEPC chairman

A media release issued by the organiser stated that IIJS is expecting more than 1,300 exhibitors. To accommodate for the expanded exhibitor list, the 36th annual show boasts a new 10,800sqm pillarless hall, which could see visitor numbers reach up to 40,000, including exhibitor representatives.

GJEPC chairman Pramod Agrawal said this year’s show would focus on technological innovations while also showcasing “the best jewellery collections crafted by over 1,300 of the country’s leading manufacturers.”

“The IIJS in the last three and half decades has evolved as Asia’s leading jewellery trade fair,” Agrawal said.

“The flagship show also demonstrates that India’s jewellery manufacturing has come of age and is widely acclaimed as a reliable and competitive source for retailers and consumers from across the world.”

“A new hall has been created this time. A lot of new exhibitors have been added this time. The show will start one day before for selected buyers,” Argrawal said.

A day prior to opening to the general public, international buyers, select leading retailers and industry leaders will be invited to an exclusive industry viewing of the exhibition.

Aside from the expansion in infrastructure, new features across the five-day program will include opportunities for start up companies and female entrepreneurs.

The show will host a range of seminars with industry expert panels across technology and design. A machinery exhibition will also demonstrate innovations in jewellery production machinery and equipment, diamond production, gemstone machinery, casting, precious alloy and refinery ingredients.

It will also host a B2B jewellery fashion ‘showcase’ and a corporate social responsibility event as a prelude to the show.

The IIJS will be held at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai.
