The BJA anticipates high attendance to discussion about local area.

The British Jewellers’ Association (BJA) will host a dedicated meeting tomorrow, January 15, to discuss the future of Hatton Garden as London’s historical diamond and jewellery district.

The meeting has been organised to allow Hatton Garden traders, retailers and businesses to discuss concerns or issues impacting the local area, while focusing on the potential of creating a Business Improvement District (BID) for Hatton Garden.


According to the BJA’s chief executive Simon Rainer, the meeting is set to be well attended, with leaflets distributed throughout Hatton Garden to raise awareness of the discussion and encourage attendees.

Research is ongoing as to how a BID could add impetus to the changes needed for the area, and key speakers will voice their concerns and discuss how the BID can be advanced during the meeting. The move follows the successful implementation of a BID in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter in 2012.

The BJA says all members of the industry are welcome to discuss matters surrounding Hatton Garden, as well as the BID, on January 15 at the ETC Venue at 51 Hatton Garden, London. The session will start at 5.15pm, followed by drinks for BJA National Committee members and hear about the specialist areas of the trade they represent.

Those interested in attending can register to attend via the BJA website, here.
