Bharat Diamond Week witnessed over 1000 domestic and international buyers over a period of three days. The show has certainly exceeded the expectations of the organizers and they are planning for a second edition of the show in October this year.

The show created an intimate platform for the loose diamond trade wherein the exhibitors and buyers could meet, trade as well as network. Also, there could not have been a better platform for SMEs and MSMEs to showcase their products to the world being at home i.e. Bharat Diamond Bourse.

A ‘By Invite’ only show, it allowed only serious buyers on the shop floor which helped exhibitors to have a one-on-one connect with them.

The first-ever Bharat Diamond Week was opened by US Consul General Edgard D. Kagan in the presence of BDB President Anoop Mehta, GJEPC Chairman Pramod Agarwal, MDMA PresidentMahendra Gandhi, Diamond Dealers Club of New York President Reuven Kaufman, and Rosy Blue (India) Managing Director Russell Mehta. The Belgian Consul General in Mumbai, Peter Huyghebaert, also visited the fair.

‘‘ The 1st Edition of Bharat Diamond Week more than lived up to our expectations,” said BDB Vice- President Mehul Shah, who heads the Diamond Week project. “We understood early on that there was going to be great interest, and that turned out to be the case with more than 1,000 visitors from India and across the world taking part. We are planning for the next show to take place from October 8-9.

“Our aim is to help the smaller and medium-size firms by giving them a platform on which they can show their goods to buyers from India and overseas. Many companies in the bourse who were not able to exhibit in the show marquee reported that buyers also moved around the exchange, visiting offices and doing business.”

BDB President Anoop Mehta said, “The Diamond Week really energised the whole Bharat Diamond Bourse. It created a lot of action and momentum. People had smiles on their faces and the event really put a spring in the step of our BDB members. We are now planning the next show. We will be implementing changes based on lessons that we learned from the planning of this show. The October show will take the Bharat Diamond Week to a whole new level. I must thank all my members who organised the show and put in so much effort to ensure its success, as well as the buyers who took part.”
