The Jewellery Show's Lennox Addo.

Jewellery Show has announced a new partnership with Anti Copying in Design (ACID), a leading design and intellectual property campaigning organisation.

This new partnership allows design-led exhibitors from the Jewellery Show to join ACID at a preferential rate and gain access to their member-only benefits.

To be a part of the ACID Community, all potential members must be designers or have a design capability and the majority of their products must be designed either in-house or by commissioned designers.


Creating a safer trading environment, ACID’s logo is not only a real symbol of deterrence, but also reflects a positive voice for IP creation.

Alison Balshaw, Sales Director of Jewellery Show, commented: “We are delighted to announce our new partnership with this highly respected and influential organisation. Joining forces with ACID is a key foundation for us and in turn will provide our exhibitors with significant help and advice on supporting their original designs, should they need it.

“We’re excited about helping to build awareness for ACID within the jewellery market as well as  providing a seminar platform where ACID will be able to inform and educate exhibitors and visitors on how to use their intellectual property rights to grow their businesses.”

While Dids Macdonald OBE, CEO of ACID, added: “The UK jewellery sector has many talented and creative designers whose skills and craftsmanship is much revered.  The importance of protecting the precious intellectual property they create is paramount to maximising growth and it is great to see the organisers, Closer Still Media, reinforcing this in our new partnership which we value.”

The jewellery industry will come together at Excel, London on the 5th & 6th September.
