IIJS kicks off in Bengaluru with 300 international buyers
The Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council launched its first Bengaluru edition of India International Jewellery Show on September 16 with 300 international buyers and 1,300 exhibitors.
On Thursday, IIJS Bengaluru kicked off and welcomed 1,800 pre-registered visitors, the GJEPC announced on its website. The trade show’s 1,300 exhibitors showcased their latest jewellery collections from 2,500 booths and the event was inaugurated by a group of dignitaries including members of the Government of Karnataka and central government as well as the GJEPC.
Day one included talks on the future of lab grown diamonds and the digital transformation of the jewellery industry. Day two’s schedule includes a talk on the art and science of business storytelling among others, the GJEPC announced on Facebook. The trade show is designed to bring together domestic and overseas buyers and facilitate networking with retailers to gain insights into demand trends and product designs.
“IIJS Premiere would boost the exports and domestic sales further,” said GJEPC chairman Colin Shah at the inauguration ceremony.
“We are already witnessing a surge in exports and we are confident that we would achieve the export target of $43.75 billion [Rs 2.91 lakh crore] this year and contribute significantly to Honourable PM Narendra Modi’s target of achieving $400 billion in merchandise exports. I would like to thank the Karnataka Government for all the support they have offered in organising this show successfully. An event of this magnitude needed a great venue, and we are glad that Bangalore International Exhibition Centre stepped up to help us organise it.”
