The first edition of The Jewellery, Gem & Technology (JGT) show will debut from 22 – 24 February 2022 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
David Bondi, senior VP of Informa Markets in Asia, said: “As the jewellery sector’s leading trade show organiser, Informa Markets Jewellery is heeding the industry’s call as a strategic partner. Our industry is undergoing a significant transformation, and it is up to us to create and embrace opportunities that will shape the long-term path for our industry.
“Our collaboration with IEG is unprecedented in the events industry, and it won’t certainly be the last,” he said. “During these unique times, our priority is to create opportunities that will deliver the best results for our community, and JGT Dubai is something that we can do better – together.”
Created as a global hub, the JGT Dubai will aim to leverage Informa’s capabilities, including its global portfolio of fairs and events, and awards programmes – the Jewellery World Awards (JWA).
Additionally, the JGT Dubai will offer suppliers the opportunity to combine a market of four billion consumers, with the buying opportunity focused on wholesalers, retailers and manufacturers from the Middle East, India, Russia, Southern Europe and North Africa.
Corrado Peraboni, CEO of IEG, added: “Our jewellery sourcing events in core markets around the world – be it in Europe, North America or the Middle East – highlight the true scale of our reach as an industry partner.
“In February 2022, expect us to bring our global experience and local expertise to bear in delivering one of the industry’s premier meeting points.”
