India’s main jewellery trade fair, IIJS Premiere, has been postponed to August 2021 due to coronavirus.
The August 2020 edition was postponed to January 2021. However, the event will not take place in January and has been further postponed to August 2021.
“Considering the sustained pandemic scenario, GJEPC has decided to move its flagship show – IIJS Premiere earlier postponed to January 2021 – further to August,” said Colin Shah, Chairman of the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC), organiser of the event.
“The show of this magnitude requires clear availability of the venue and requisite government approvals, both being uncertain at this juncture. With positive developments on the Covid-19 vaccine, international mobility is likely to resume by March, and that would aid us to organise IIJS Premiere in a physical form in August next year.”
