The event will run from June 7 to 13 under new management.
Dates for London Jewellery Week 2010 have been confirmed, with the consumer-facing jewellery event running from June 7 to 13.
The week-long celebration of the British jewellery industry will comprise of a number of events taking place throughout London. There will be four cornerstone events of London Jewellery Week: selling exhibition Treasure, events at The Goldsmiths’ Company, the Hatton Garden Festival and a festival organised by the Green Street Jewellers’ Association.
London Jewellery Week had been in jeopardy after headline sponsor Coutts and previous organisers The Communication Group pulled out of this year’s event, but a group of industry bodies got together and secured leftover funding for the third year of the event from the London Development Agency (LDA). The figure has originally been estimated at about £160,000 but the final sum received by the new organisers was £128,000.
The money secured from the LDA will be used to create a dedicated website at existing URL londonjewelleryweek.co.uk, publish a guide to the week and run an advertising campaign that will include placing ads on the London Underground.
