The 67th edition of the Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair (BGJF) enjoyed a spectacular opening day, with 1,020 gem and jewelry companies from Thailand and overseas exhibiting their products at 2,004 booths, which is 30 percent higher than the expected target.

This marked the first full-scale gem and jewelry fair after a 2-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The event is expected to attract more than 10,000 buyers from around the world for trade negotiations, and trade volumes are expected to reach up to 1.2 billion baht.

The 5-day event featured a number of interesting exhibitions and activities such as The Jewel Wonders, a showcase of highlight products from exhibitors and emerging jewellery trends; The Jewellers, a presentation of works by a new generation of jewellery designers; special booths under The New Faces project, bringing together leading SMEs across Thailand; discussions with experts to provide knowledge in various fields; jewellery making demonstrations by artisans; and fun workshop activities.

The Jewellers zone showcased the works of a new generation of jewellery designers who are from the Designers' Room and Talent Thai projects of the Department of International Trade Promotion, which focuses on unique works, fostering creativity that reflect Thainess in a contemporary way while aligning with global consumer trends. Such designers included Ponk Smithi, Apisek Studio, Ravipa, Sarran, Trimode Accessories, etc. Meanwhile, the special New Faces booth brought together 120 leading SMEs and exquisite Thai designers from across the country, staging a forum to display their works. By highlighting artisan techniques and handicrafts, this showcase helped support SMEs who have the potential to produce and design to have the opportunity to expand their market to foreign countries.

 

 The show highlighted the majestic Thai craftsmanship and creativity through ‘The Jewel Wonders Showcase’.
