Speaking on the return of DJGF in its 9th edition in the physical format, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India said, “The Gems and Jewellery industry is one of the biggest businesses in India, playing a crucial role in the Indian economy. While India’s gold and diamond trade contributed 7.5% to India’s GDP, India’s total merchandise exports contributed 14%. Generating massive employment opportunities, the sector is likely to employ 8.23 million persons by 2022, from a 5 million in 2020. In the coming years, the organised players in the industry will continue to play a fundamental role as they have the potential to adapt to the consumer and economic changes. The established brands not only provide variety in terms of products and designs, but they also guide the organised market and open up opportunities to grow. Moreover, the world saw a shift in the consumer mindset in this ongoing pandemic. A recent industry report said the online gold market in India, still nascent, at 1-2% growth, is witnessing huge demand from both digital players who view this market as an opportunity and established jewellers who view this market as a required addition to their brick-and-mortar model.”
“The much-awaited Delhi Jewellery and Gem Fair is back in its physical avatar in our Restart 2.0 and will showcase this industry in a structured setting for the buyer community by giving them confidence, variety, authenticity and transparency. North India is the country’s major market known for its affinity for gleaming and statement jewellery pieces, including Mughal antique, gold, diamond, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, polkis, kundan and navratna jewellery, to name a few which will be offered at our show. With an array of authentic and unique jewellery and commencing just before the wedding and festive season when jewellers will see higher sales and footfalls, DJGF promises growth for the industry,” he further added.
The show will also see participation from Indian cities such as New Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Ambala to name a few. It will have Jewellery wholesalers, retailers, importers & exporters, Jewellery manufacturers, Diamond, Gemstone, Pearl suppliers & traders, precious metal and Jewellery mounting traders and suppliers, and representatives from trade and governmental organisations, all come under one roof to meet, connect, network and grow their business.
