The 7th edition of GemGenève, a show for precious stone and jewellery professionals and enthusiasts, will be opening its doors from Thursday 2 November to Sunday 5 November, 2023, in Palexpo Hall 6 (also the venue for the November 2022 edition) with 14,000sqm of exhibition space.
Once again, it has been timed to coincide with the major autumn auctions and other events during Geneva Luxury Week. The event’s designers are already working on a new layout, soon to be unveiled.
To date, 145 dealers and a total of 156 exhibitors have been chosen to take part in the November edition of the show. (Figures subject to change; further updates in September 2023).
The organisers are already forecasting a very dynamic event, with more exhibitors than in November 2022 (176, including 144 dealers) whilst being more exclusive than the May 2023 event (which hosted 230 exhibitors and 192 dealers).
Some key features of previous GemGenève events will now become annual events, such as the Designer Vivarium, which will be a regular event at spring editions going forward.
The same applies to some of the collabs with schools, including the partnership with HEAD and the Grand Theatre of Geneva, next scheduled in May 2024. Meanwhile the Donna Jewel project with students from Galdus School and CREA EYES with Donatella Zappieri will be autumn fixtures in future.
Still true to its exclusive recipe – a trade fair created by exhibitors for exhibitors and open to the general public – GemGenève showcases a diverse range of gems and jewels and offers a unique platform dedicated to the world of exceptional diamonds, precious stones, pearls, and antique and contemporary jewellery.
It also features prestigious designers and emerging talents, and boasts the participation of prestigious schools and the young designers of tomorrow.
Over and above its role as a trade show, the event is placing increasing emphasis on culture, young people, training, and passing on knowledge.
GemGenève is constantly seeking new opportunities and projects to be showcased.
With Director Mathieu Dekeukelaire at the helm, the organisers are especially keen for each new edition to feature a cultural programme of the highest quality.
