The organising committee of Bharat Diamond Week [BDW], an ‘only diamond show’, has decided that the BDW will go digital.
The decision was taken by the committee in an online meeting earlier this month.
The Bharat Diamond Week in its 4th edition was planned for the first week of August 2020.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, it was decided by the committee to go digital.
Keeping in mind the status of various gem and jewellery economies that are more or less in a lockdown stage, the committee felt the need to make diamonds available to buyers once the industry gets back to business, and what better way of assisting them than via a “digital medium”.
BDB cares about the health of buyers and in the present scenario it may not be advisable to travel, and so the BDB committee decided to cancel the physical show that was to be held from August 5 to 7, 2020, and to transform the event into a digital one.
