India invites Aussies for a glittering Diamond Week

The world’s largest diamond bourse is preparing to welcome thousands of traders for this year’s Bharat Diamond Week, with complementary accommodation for the first 150 registering buyers.

Following on from the success of last year’s trade shows – which saw 1,000 international visitors fly in to do business with more than 150 exhibitors – the Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB) in Mumbai, India is setting the stage for the 2019 event.

Anoop Mehta, president BDB, says, “The Bharat Diamond Week showcases beautiful gems created for a global audience in the world’s biggest and most important cutting and polishing centre.

“We aim to put buyers directly in touch with suppliers in a convenient setting, saving time and expenses as the exhibitors and their goods can be easily and quickly found, thus making the fair an efficient visit.”

Mehul Shah, vice-president BDB, adds, “We are very excited. There is already a great buzz in the air as we proceed with plans for the fair, with many additional events on the schedule.”

The third edition of Bharat Diamond Week will host delegations from Europe, Israel, Dubai and across Asia. Notably, the President of the Shanghai Diamond Exchange, Lin Qiang, is scheduled to bring a large number of Chinese buyers with him.

“We are especially pleased to welcome many old friends – and many new ones –from Australia and New Zealand to the Diamond Week,” Shah says.

“We have historic links, especially because of the Argyle goods that come to India. We have a great deal of respect for these markets and are always happy to do business our friends Down Under and to maintain our ties.”

Mehta adds: “We have approximately 150 complementary hotel rooms available for foreign buyers, so I would advise members of the global diamond industry to register straight away.”

“The BDB's 2,500 businesses can supply buyers with absolutely any diamond they need in any shape, size or colour.”

To give buyers the ultimate peace of mind, the BDB has carefully vetted all companies applying for a booth to ensure they only trade in natural mined diamonds.

“Trading of synthetic or ‘lab-grown’ diamonds is banned in the premises of the BDB, so there will not be any such diamonds at the Bharat Diamond Week,” Shah confirms.

The event is set to take place from 14–16 October, just ahead of the Hindu festival of Diwali – which will mean excellent prices for buyers ahead of the traditional holiday shutdown.

Bharat Diamond Week is also an amazing opportunity to support the region’s small and medium-sized businesses in today’s tough trading conditions.

Last year’s shows were a huge success for this sector of the market.

“We have all had very humble beginnings and we have not forgotten our roots. Our focus has always been about elevating the entire diamond industry. At the Bourse, there is room for everybody,” Shah says of the 2018 edition.

The ‘one company, one booth’ policy was particularly popular, with Nitshi Shah of Janam Corporation saying: “’One company, one booth’ gives equal exposure and an opportunity of level play for all.”

This year’s trade show will carry on that format.
