The Gemworld Munich event planned for 30 October-1 November will go ahead as planned, according to show organiser Münchner Mineralientage Fachmesse (MMF) GmbH.
The event has promised “around 250” exhibitors will be present at the buying and selling event.
In addition to the companies already represented, such as Karl Faller, Paul Wild, Ekkehard F. Schneider and Kreis Jewellery, further names are added this year such as Engel & Co and Herbert Stephan.
This year, exhibitors like Hermann Grimm, Marlene Uecker Cultured Pearls, Campur, Antwerp Diamond Partners and Singhania & Sohn are situated in the exclusive area of ‘Gemworld Professional’, to which only registered trade visitors have access.
There will also be a ‘Young Designers Corner’, showcasing the work of students and recent graduates.
“After the sudden standstill and the time of uncertainty, we are delighted to be able to offer the industry a platform that will again enable personal communication and trade,” said Christoph Keilmann, managing director of MMF GmbH.
On the Gemworld Munich website, the event describes the safety measures it will put in place. These include the requests that all visitors wear facemasks, keep their distance from others, and observe hygiene rules like handwashing.
Visitors must also register with the event so that they are easily contactable and traceable.
The number of guests has also been limited so as to make social distancing easier.
