The organisers of both Vicenzaoro and Jewellery & Gem World Hong Kong have partnered to bring a new Dubai-based jewellery show.

Set for an early 2022 debut, Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai (JGT Dubai) comes from events organisers Informa Markets Jewellery and the Italian Exhibition Group SpA (IEG).

Its inaugural edition will take place 22-24 February, 2022, at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).

The show organisers will also be supported by DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodities Centre), JGT Dubai’s official partner, and Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group as an industry partner.

JGT Dubai aims to offer suppliers the opportunity to unlock the full potential of the combined market of 4 billion consumers that are within seven hours of flying time from Dubai.

The buying opportunity is especially focused on wholesalers, retailers and manufacturers from the Middle East, India, Russia, Southern Europe and North Africa, the organisers said in a statement.

David Bondi, senior vice president of Informa Markets in Asia, said: “As the jewellery sector’s leading trade show organiser, Informa Markets Jewellery is heeding the industry’s call as a strategic partner.

“Our industry is undergoing a significant transformation, and it is up to us to create and embrace new opportunities that will shape the long-term path for our industry.”

“Our collaboration with IEG is unprecedented in the events industry, and it won’t certainly be the last,” he said.

“During these unique times, our priority is to create opportunities that will deliver the best results for our community, and JGT Dubai is something that we can do better – together.”
