Buying groups to unite in support of Sydney fair, celebrate milestones

Independent Jewellers Collective (IJC), Nationwide Jewellers, and Showcase Jewellers have confirmed their attendance at this year’s International Jewellery & Watch Fair (IJWF) as well as a range of member functions to coincide with the event.

All three buying groups are reaching milestones in 2021, with IJC marking its first year of operation, Nationwide celebrating its 30th anniversary, and Showcase toasting to 40 years in the jewellery industry.

"With 130 exhibitors already booked, the IJWF in Sydney is the major industry event for 2021. We look forward to reconnecting and seeing our members and suppliers at this event"
Buying groups joint statement

In a joint statement, Josh Zarb, CEO IJC, Colin Pocklington, managing director Nationwide, and Showcase Jewellers COO Nicola Adams and CEO of finance and administration Jorge Joaquim, said, “With 130 exhibitors already booked, the IJWF in Sydney is the major industry event for 2021. We look forward to reconnecting and seeing our members and suppliers at this event.”

As part of their celebrations, each of the groups have scheduled a large range of events and functions in conjunction with the IJWF, which will be held at the ICC Exhibition Centre in Darling Harbour from 28–30 August 2021.

Gary Fitz-Roy, managing director of Expertise Events, which organises the IJWF, said, “We are pleased to see the three supporting buying groups all celebrating milestone birthdays, which also link to the fair itself celebrating 30 years!”

The fourth buying group, Leading Edge Group Jewellers (LEGJ) also intends to attend the IJWF.

Claire Packett, head of category – jewellery at Leading Edge, told Jeweller, "Leading Edge are looking forward to coming together with suppliers and members at this iconic event. We will be celebrating many exciting new launches including the Aurora 88 diamond range, the introduction of our 'Australian Jewellery Warehouse' for members, and the newly-branded Leading Edge jewellery range.”

The 2020 IJWF was cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with Fitz-Roy calling the 2021 edition, “Without a doubt one of the most important in the fair’s history as the industry reunites and celebrates. It is also appropriate to note the home of the fair in Sydney, NSW provides the best track record for safety and the commercial approach to getting on with business.”

Fitz-Roy said Expertise Events was “good to go” in running the IJWF this August, following the success of its five state-based Trade Days in February, March, and April.

More information and registration details for the IJWF can be found at www.jewelleryfair.com.au.
