IIJS Signature 2020 to take place in Mumbai in February
today Nov 4, 2019
The 13th edition of the India International Jewellery Show will take place from February 13 to 16, 2020, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Gurugram and the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council is offering reduced rates to exporters in a move to boost the industry.
IIJS Signature’s upcoming trade show expects participation from over 700 exhibitor businesses, many of which will be first time exhibitors at the event. The trade show, which is supported by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, will also feature a new Hall for Machinery this edition as well as 100 new jewellery stalls.
In order to encourage participation during a slow time for India’s jewellery industry, the GJEPC is offering reduced rates for exhibitors. “Globally, there’s a low demand for gems and jewellery,” the GJEPC’s chairman Pramod Kumar Agrawal said in a statement, reported by Retail Jeweller India. “There are other factors that have affected the business domestically including the rise in import duty of gold. Our move to give rate benefits to exhibitors of IIJS Signature and IIJS Premiere is with the aim to give relief to our member exporters as this industry has been resilient to such situations in the past.”
The GJEPC is offering rate benefits to participants including micro, small, and medium enterprise members. As part of its promotional activities, IIJS Signature will conduct roadshows in over 100 Indian cities and liaise with other countries to facilitate international connections with the aim of increasing exports, Agrawal said.
