Visitors browsed 330 dedicated gemstone exhibitors over three days.
Gemworld Munich welcomed 43,500 visitors to the Munich Trade Fair Centre from October 24 to 26, with 6,000 registered trade visitors focusing their attentions on the event’s precious and semi-precious gemstones offer.
Despite a “sluggish” start on Friday October 24, organisers reported a sharp increase in visitor numbers across both Saturday and Sunday.
With 6,000 registered trade guests and 330 dedicated gemstone exhibitors, the event reflected similar levels of interest as the 2013 show, with participants pointing to high sales despite pressures in the current market.
According to an official post-show press release: “Gemworld Munich remains a reliable means of support for many exhibitors seeking to conclude successful autumn business.”
Gemworld Munich Trade Fair managing director Christoph Keilmann, commented: “Both the specialist retail trade and the manufacturers are facing very real challenges in their daily business.
“This makes it all the more important for both sides to have an efficient platform that is aligned to their needs. We are seeking to achieve precisely this by offering trade visitors product ranges that are tailored to actual demand and by providing our exhibitors with straightforward and cost-efficient organisation.
“By making direct sales at the trade fair, exhibitors can reduce the risk of later cancellations. In addition to this, buyers are also able to work with the goods they have purchased on the very next day.”
Exhibitors included jewellery brand Hans D. Krieger, which presented its diamond collections in the Gemworld Pavilion.
The next Gemworld Munich will take place between October 30 and November 1 2015.
