International Jewellery London (IJL) has announced it will move to the “iconic” Alexandra Palace to celebrate its 65th anniversary this year.
Organiser Reed Exhibitions said that as well as creating a new show floor experience, there will be other “innovations” for both buyers and sellers, driven by the “core objective of delivering business opportunities for everyone”.
Kerry Prince, Reed divisional director, said: “A feat of Victorian engineering, Alexandra Palace is a space that has recently undergone a reinvention, the Palace has been transformed, drawing it into an exciting new design space.
“It is therefore a perfect time to move into the new decade, celebrate IJL’s 65th birthday and support the best of fine jewellery from both home and overseas within a fresh new venue.”
She added: “As part of the new look, we are also enhancing our team to take IJL forward. With passionate, creative, and dynamic individuals set to work with our exhibitors, their experience in both the industry and the staging of events will spearhead the sparkle that we expect the roaring 20’s to deliver, maintaining IJL’s status as the world’s leading jewellery event.”
IJL showcases and celebrates the international jewellery industry as well as British jewellers, and this year it is expected to have more than 9,000 participants over the three day exhibition.
The event will take place between 13 September and 15 September.
