The International Gemological Institute (IGI), one of world's largest independent gem certification and appraisal institute, hosted their first National Level “D” Show – a Buyer-Seller Knowledge Meet which brought together country’s leading Jewellery manufacturers and valued jewellers under one roof – at The Lalit Golf and Spa Resort, Goa. The event enabled 1990 successful meetings between participating valued Partners and buyers in a span of 4 days!

After organising the past five regional meets in five different cities and zones – Hyderabad, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore and Jaipur, IGI’s 6th edition of Buyer Seller Knowledge Meet was held as a national meet. The four days – one to one meetings were also inclusive of a Goan Themed Entertainment Night & a Gala Evening. Both the events were attended by the in house guests as well as local dignitaries from Goa. 

The Goan evening captured the true flavours of Goa, from Goan Carnival décor to Goan dress code, followed by Goa’s one of the best Bands “Aj Trio” along with some great Goan Delicacies; whereas, the Gala Night was more of a formal entertainment night. It included a panel discussion on Synthetic Diamonds, Excise and Taxation on diamond jewellery, which was concluded by Akriti Kakar’s performance.

Brandwidth has been partnering with the International Gemological Institute for the “D” Show for the fifth time, speaking on which, Shashank Gupta, Director, Brandwidth, said, “The 6th edition of the IGI “D” Show was a 4 day event as compared to its last five editions of 3 day events. This year we saw a massive growth in the number of meetings in a span of 4 days. From 950 meetings to almost 1990 meetings between the Valued Partners and the Valued Buyers, we planned the whole event from managing guest movements, transport of the guests, check-ins – check-outs, manpower handling, hotel coordination, security arrangements for the high valued jewellery to entertainment nights, the whole thing was managed very successfully. It gives us great pleasure in partnering with IGI on the “D” show since we are given the luxury to plan and execute this platform as a part of their core team.”

The gems and jewellery industry plays a significant role in the country’s economy and has been one of the fastest growing sectors of the country. The diamond industry is internationally recognised due to its talented craftsmen, who possess a superior ability in cutting and polishing diamonds. Talking about the IGI D-Show,

Tehmasp Printer, MD, IGI –India, states, “This was the D-Show’s 6th year and the show has blossomed into a true networking platform for the Diamond and Jewellery trade. The D-show cuts through the corporate hierarchy, enabling the jewellers and jewellery manufacturers to mingle with each other in a relaxed, luxurious environment.  The four days of the D-Show generates the potential for forging long-term business relationships that go way beyond a single sale transaction. These one-on-one interactions also ensure that various challenges are discussed and solutions arrived at in real time. IGI also disseminates valuable information on current industry challenges, like lab grown diamonds and the recent changes in the industry’s taxation laws.”


International Gemological Institute hosted a unique four-day buyer-seller knowledge meet in Goa, from June, 9 to 12, 2016 managed by Brandwidth Events.
