International Jewellery London (IJL) will showcase a host of new international companies making their debut at this year’s event.
With over 500 exhibitors drawn from 33 countries, the international line-up includes an array of individual companies from Australia, Columbia, Brazil, Greece, Germany and Denmark, along with high profile Country Pavilions from Hong Kong, South Africa and Sri Lanka, and the European village. This in turn has attracted a number of new key buyers from Russia, France, America and the Middle East to this year’s show for the first time as members of the prestigious Diamond Club.
Sam Willoughby, show director, comments: “As always, we aim to deliver an amazing show which meets the needs of all sectors of the industry – from the latest trend information to the ultimate in design inspiration. However, what makes the event so special is the high calibre of so many of the exhibitors who have already signed up for IJL 2016.
“We have a full agenda including our German Market Focus, the exciting trend-based catwalk shows and the not-to-be missed schedule of insightful seminars and advice clinics, which includes for the first time a daily dedicated ’Watch Hour’ session in recognition of our watch exhibitors.”
IJL attracts jewellery and watch companies from every category. These include, for the first time, brands such as Rose Carvalho from Brazil, Colpo & Zilio from Italy, Eleuterio from Portugal, fine jewellery designer David Miracca from London, Drakenberg Sjolin from Denmark, Grew & Co from Australia, Astley Clarke from the UK and Clogau from Wales.
Returning acclaimed designers are James Newman, Alex Monroe, Andrew Geoghegan, Rachel Galley and Sarah Jordan, who join major established brands like Charles Green, IBB London, UNOde50, Domino, Bronzallure, Nikki Lissoni and Unique.
