The inaugural edition of Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai (JGT Dubai) is set to take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), 22-24 February 2022. The three-day fair will bring together suppliers from Belgium, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Israel, Turkey, the UAE and other key sourcing destinations under one roof.
Jointly staged by Informa Markets Jewellery and the Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), JGT Dubai has received wide industry support, including that of official partner, Dubai Multi Commodities Centre, and industry partner, the Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group, among other industry associations.
David Bondi, senior vice-president of Informa Markets in Asia, said: “This B2B show will feature distinct showcases highlighting core product categories, with each section offering buyers opportunities for discovery and engagement, and the chance to get a head start on their 2022 sourcing requirements. Together with our event co-organiser, the IEG, and through our collective efforts with DWTC, we are creating a productive environment where our community can get back to business safely and confidently.”
Positioned as the first international in-person sourcing opportunity for 2022, the fair has attracted interest from key buying groups with retailers, wholesalers and brands from the Middle East, Eastern Europe and South America signing up for JGT Dubai’s Hosted Buyer Programme.
Corrado Peraboni, CEO of IEG, commented: “It is with great pride that we are preparing to turn the spotlight on JGT Dubai, an event that is making its debut on the annual calendar of international jewellery events, representing, from the very outset, a strategic business multiplier in the Middle East area for the sector’s global players.”
JGT Dubai will also take place during the largest cultural event ever staged in the Middle East – Expo 2020 Dubai. The Expo opened on 1 October 2021 and will run through 31 March 2022.
