Feedback inspires relocation with the aim of growing the event.
Jewellery & Watch London, formerly known as The Jewellery Show London, will relocate to the Saatchi Gallery in west London in a bid to accommodate current and future growth.
The show launched in 2012 and has been held at Somerset House for the past two years. Jewellery & Watch London’s parent company i2i Events said that it carried out research following the 2013 events and, based on industry feedback, has decided that the Saatchi Gallery will make a more suitable venue as the event continues to grow.
Following feedback from exhibitors and attendees alike, the show has now relocated to the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, West London, home to events such as Scoop London and SalonQP.
i2i Events said the move to the Saatchi Gallery will help accommodate the show’s growth. The annual event takes place in June as a key mid-year point in the calendar, providing buyers with the chance to view collections for top-up orders and Christmas buying.
Jewellery & Watch London portfolio director Julie Driscoll said: “It has always been Jewellery & Watch London’s aim to provide buyers with the most beautiful jewellery and watch collections presented in an individual and unique setting.
“Re-locating the show to London’s Saatchi Gallery will allow us to present the finest jewellery and watch collections against the beautiful backdrop of the Saatchi Gallery meaning that we will continue to offer an inspirational buying environment while also allowing the show to grow.”
As a result of the r-location of the show to the Saatchi Gallery, Jewellery & Watch London will take place later, between June 18 and 19 2014.
