Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair to attract tens of thousands of buyers
BANGKOK, Thailand, February 2, 2016 – The biannual Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair, which will be held at the IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center from February 24 to 28, is expected to attract tens of thousands of buyers from around the world.
Organisers anticipate gross export revenues to top Bt400,000 million or US $12.8 billion.
Over 1,500 exhibitors with over 3,000 booths attended the 56th BGJF last September, and despite providing an additional 3,500 booths this year, organisers say that commercial space for the event is running out fast, so exhibitors are urged to register right away.
“The objective of the fair is for foreign buyers to come and place orders, which is why the fair is held twice a year,” said Somchai Phornchindarak, Chairman of the Gems, Jewelry and Precious Metal Confederation of Thailand.
Suttipong Damrongsakul, President of the Thai Gem and Jewelry Traders Association (TGJTA), believes the BGJF will showcase the country’s expertise.
“We would like to encourage new innovation from exhibitors, as we want to present to foreign buyers the potential of Thai gems and jewelry companies,” he said.
