International Jewellery London is gearing up to open the doors to the 2017 edition of the trade show.
The London-based trade show will kickstart its three-day event at 10am today (September 3), with industry trade professionals expected to attend from all over the country, and some further afield.
This year’s show promises to inspire the industry, with new show features and a strong showcase of over 500 companies from 32 countries.
The event has been designed to provide a ‘360 degree’ platform for successful business, sharing knowledge and debate, networking and discovering the latest trends and talents.
New show experiences include the newly themed seminar theatres, workshops and dedicated Skills Lab, a glimpse into the future in the Retail Experience Area, the new Watch Lounge and Jewellery LIVE! showcasing craftsmanship and technology at its best.
Other ‘not to be missed’ highlights include the Trends Catwalk, previewing trends set to hit the High Street this Christmas and in Spring 2018, and a pool of cutting-edge new design talent from this year’s Bright Young Gems and KickStarters.
Centred on its ongoing commitment to support the UK jewellery trade, this year’s show has also been backed by year-long initiatives to help exhibitors flourish at the show. Visitors to IJL can expect to see some of the country’s bestselling jewellery brands, alongside emerging designers and a selection of suppliers from around the world.
