Informa Markets in India, the B2B exhibitions organiser, recently concluded the ninth edition of the Delhi Jewellery and Gem Fair (DJGF), North India’s biggest international jewellery trade show. DJGF took place in-person at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi, for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Expo saw over 12,500 buyers, 200 exhibitors and 15,000 unique designs and welcomed government ministers among the attendees.
Shri Dushyant Chautala, deputy chief minister of the northern Indian state Haryana, said: "Such an event helps hundreds of exhibitors from North India. The Indian jewellery and gems industry have made a notable mark and the government has supported it in the promotion of this industry.”
Shri Satyendar Jain, member of Delhi Legislative Assembly, added: “Our approach would be to highlight the importance of increasing the value of jewellery, its endorsement and how it needs to be preserved. The Indian jewellery and gems industry contributes 4-7.5% to the GDP and 14% to the export trade of the country.”
Yogesh Mudras, managing director of Informa Markets in India, said: “Returning in the physical format after a gap of two years, DJGF reinforced a sense of trust in the jewellery market with over 200 participants showcasing an array of unique and trending jewellery.”
The Fair included the Women Achiever’s Awards (SHAKTI), which is part of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Amrut Mahotsav’, that celebrated women entrepreneurs, business owners, and corporate professionals from the gems and jewellery industry in India.
DJGF was supported by its AllSecure and Travel Safety Guidelines, a safety standard initiative that ensures a safe and controlled environment.
