A series of Capital City Trade Days are set to take place in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth next year, as part of Expertise Events' 2021 jewellery industry schedule.

Dates announced for early 2021 jewellery ‘Trade Days’

Expertise Events, the organiser of the International Jewellery & Watch Fair (IJWF), has released details of its 2021 Capital City Trade Days which will take place in February and March.

As previously reported by Jeweller, the Trade Days were developed to help the jewellery industry reconnect following the cancellation of the 2020 IJWF, as well as provide retailers with access to a range of suppliers without travelling interstate.

"People want to get back to reconnecting and rebuilding, and this format [state-based Trade Days] is cost-effective for manufacturers, distributors, and retailers"

Described as “intimate and local focused events”, the Trade Days also offer suppliers an “easy and affordable opportunity to connect with local retailers”.

Announcing the Trade Days, Gary Fitz-Roy, managing director Expertise Events, said, "We recognise that in 2021, not everyone will want to or be able to travel, nor have the time to do so. Starting at the beginning of February, we will have a compact Trade Days format – two days of trade, plus networking opportunities.

"People want to get back to reconnecting and rebuilding, and this format [state-based Trade Days] is cost-effective for manufacturers, distributors, and retailers."

While the Brisbane and Sydney events will focus on jewellery, the Perth and Adelaide Trade Days will also include a gift component to reflect the different needs of these markets.

Expertise Events has this week confirmed dates and locations for the four Trade Days:

  • Brisbane, 13–14 February 2021 at Brisbane Convention Centre
  • Sydney, 20–21 February 2021 at ICC Sydney Exhibition Centre
  • Perth, 13–14 March 2021 at Perth Convention Centre
  • Adelaide, 20–21 March 2021 at Adelaide Convention Centre

Victorian retailers will have the opportunity to view new products at the dedicated Jewellery Pavilion within the Melbourne Gift & Lifestyle Fair, which is scheduled for 6–8 February 2021 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.

A Jewellery Pavilion will also be present at the Gold Coast Gift & Lifestyle Fair on 3–5 July 2021, and at the Sydney Gift & Lifestyle Fair on 18–21 September 2021.

Next year’s IJWF will be held from 28–30 August, with the theme ‘Be Reconnected’.
