Indian Pavilion has larger exhibition space at Jewellery Arabia
November 2014 – The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) is participating in the Jewellery Arabia exhibition at the Bahrain International Convention & Exhibition Centre from November 18 to 22, 2014 represented by 64 leading names from the Indian gemstone and jewellery industry.
The participation has increased over the last year and so has the exhibition space by the Council for Indian participants owing to the huge response received last year.
The GJEPC will also have a new look for the India Pavilion this year
The Indian Pavilion this year, which is spread over 968 sq. metres, will again showcase its exquisite craftsmanship and jewellery collections, comprising high-end diamond jewellery, gold and platinum jewellery, and fine jewellery.
Also on display will be designer hand-made jewellery, high end diamond and bridal jewellery, and some exclusive pieces.
For the Middle Eastern market, Indian participants will focus on jewellery with colour stones, sapphires, emeralds and rubies, as well as huge solitaire diamonds.
This year the India Pavilion will be held at Hall No 1 and 2 with additional space from the entrance hall.
Vipul Shah, Chairman GJEPC, said: “Over the years, the Indian Pavilion has been gaining recognition, and this year we have increased our presence at the India Pavilion and have a higher number of participants from India.
“The Middle East accounts for around 40% of the gem and jewellery trade with India, a phenomenon that continues to grow at a steady pace.
“With the growing importance of the Middle East, Jewellery Arabia 2014 is one of the most sought after events in the industry.
“We look forward to strengthening our ties with our Middle Eastern partners and exploring new business opportunities.”
A clear indication of the booming trade relations between the Indian sub-continent and the Middle East is provided by the trade figures between the regions.
Trade with the Middle East continues to grow steadily over the years. Exports to the UAE for 2013 stood at USD14.37 billion.
Jewellery Arabia is the largest and most prestigious jewellery exhibition in the Middle East and since its inception in 1992 has provided international jewellery houses with unrivalled direct access to trade buyers and private collectors from the Middle East.
