Exhibitors and visitor registration show an increase on 2009.
With 481 exhibitors already signed up and a surge in visitor registration, IJL 2010 is already set to beat last year in scale.
A number of new features will be incorporated in this year’s event, including a prestigious line-up of seminar speakers with big names, such as designer Stephen Webster and National Association of Goldsmiths chief executive Michael Hoare, on the list of those giving talks..
A number of leading brands and designers will be returning to showcase and launch their design collections, including Shaun Leane, Babette Wasserman, SHO Fine Jewellery, Farah Qureshi, Hot Diamonds and Domino.
The will also be a large number of newcomers to the show. Distributor DMJ will be launching new collections from Storywheels and popular designer Tomasz Donocik, an IJL 2006 Bright Young Gem, will also be showing his new designs.
Acting IJL event manager Sam Willoughby said: “We are receiving such great feedback about the show generally, and about the new features and initiatives launched for both visitors and exhibitors at IJL in the past couple of years. IJL delivers everything a retailer or buyer could need – business advice, fresh ideas, networking opportunities and the best new designers alongside successful brands”.
