Event title:
INTERGEM – International Trade Fair for Gems and Gemstone jewellery (Public)
INTERGEM 2007, the international trade fair for gems, and gemstone jewellery in Idar-Oberstein, again increased the number of exhibitors and visitors. Already in 2005 the trade fair succeeded in raising the number of exhibitors and visitors and in 2006 this positive trend was continued. With 3100 trade visitors in this year a 10 % increase in comparison to 2005 was achieved. The number of exhibitors rose to 141 – an boost of almost 8%.
The major part of the visitors came from Germany. The remainder consisted of 32 nations among them: the united Arabic Emirates, Iceland, USA, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, India, Madagascar, Mali, New Zealand, Mexico and the Republic of China.
The degree of internationality was strengthened through systematic marketing in the destinations in the close proximity of the trade fair airport Frankfurt/Hahn. INTERGEM exhibitors reported of trade visitors from Spain, Great Britain and Italy, which utilized this uncomplicated connection for a trade fair visit.
Finally the INTERGEM will get a location suited for a fair of luxury products: In the commercial district Nahetal. Secretary of State, Roger Lewentz, attended the ground breaking ceremony on Saturday, where INTERGEM organizers and exhibitors expect further positive signals from the construction of the multi- -purpose-complex The success story of the young designers of ZeitZeichen (sign of the times), which premiered in the previous year continues: Precious metals and gemstones boldly combined with felt, porcelain and plastic. But the young designers also presented classic jewellery with that certain something. Their presentation at the INTERGEM was again made possible through the support of the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Economics. But already established designers like the group Delicatesse or Edelform convinced with their innovative jewellery.

Varied and sophisticated was the fringe program: In a laid back atmosphere, with good live music and small delicious tidbits, exhibitors, visitors, representatives of politics, economy and the press, celebrated in the 20th floor of the Diamond Bourse in Idar.

The INTERGEM-Gala themed “Fine Gemstones – Fine Wines”
elated visitors: The wines of the Nahetalente were introduced professionally by sommelier Claudia Stern and parallel to each wine, exquisite jewellery creations by INTERGEM-exhibitors were presented in a stunning jewellery fashion show.
Renowned lecturers, interesting topics: The special lectures were well visited. From Susan Sagherian informing about current trends to Dietmar Krebs, which discussed effective public relations techniques for jewelers, the topics were rather interesting for trade visitors and exhibitors.
In 2007 the fair will take place from 5th to 8th of October.
