The 9th Gem & Jewellery India International Exhibition (GJIIE) jointly organised by Madras Jewellers and Diamond Merchant’s Association and UBM India, saw a large number of India’s leading jewellery houses participate and over 12,000 visitors attending. The B2B event was held between 16th to 18th March at the Chennai Trade Centre, Chennai. The fair brought together manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers and a platform for the showcase of jewellery and loose stones.

The opening ceremony was inaugurated with an orchestra of traditional South Indian instruments, welcoming Chief Guest, Mr. Rajendran to light the ceremonial lamp.

Segments at the fair included a jewellery fashion extravaganza titled ‘Style Statement’, which served as the exclusive platform for the country’s top manufacturers to showcase their trendsetting jewellery collection for the year 2013 in India. Seminars at the fair educated the audience on various aspects of the jewellery industry. A panel of experts, comprising Emmanuel Babu of Original Kerala Jewellers, Mohamed Yasir Sultan of Sultan Group, Suraj Shantakumar of Kirtilals and Sanjay Banerjee of Nizam Jewellers, engaged in a discussion on ‘Independent Retailing vs. Chain store Retailing’, elucidating the importance of brand identity, which is essential for small-scale and large-scale jewelers. A gold walk was organsied, with models adorned with signature pieces by participating jewelers.

Kranti Nagvekar, Group Director for UBM India’s jewellery portfolio announced the launch of the first B2C show, ‘I Love Jewellery’, to open in October exclusively for the jewellers of Chennai and other important surrounding cities. This is UBM India’s first B2C Jewellery show and is expected to gather large crowd of 20,000-30,000 visitors as it is planned a week before Diwali. Jayantilal J Challani, President, MJDMA shared, “The idea behind B2C is to benefit the end users by making available all varieties and latest design under one roof at an affordable price.” Invitees and over 200 jewellers from Chennai are expected to attend. There will be two categories of displays with one hall committed exclusively for hi-end jewellery. As a prelude to the glittering extravaganza, UBM will organize a fashion show of jewellery from across India. These exclusive pieces will be on sale and will be open to visitors at the exhibition. Kranti Nagvekar, Group Director, UBM India added, "This year UBM India has announced its latest venture, Kolkata Jewellery & Gem Fair which will be held from 11-13 January, 2014. KJGF along with the other four exhibitions in Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi & Hyderabad together attracts over 30,000 key buyers and over 800 exhibitors from India and overseas.”

The 9th Gem & Jewellery India International Exhibition raised the benchmark and increased business opportunities for the jewellery industry, with a participation of 250+ exhibitors.
