Adding another notch to its repertoire of luxury events, 70EMG produced yet another edition of the India International Jewellery Show (IIJS) in Mumbai. Organised by the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) India, the exhibition was held at Bombay Exhibition Centre (August 4 to 8) and The Lalit Hotel (August 5 to 8). The expo was designed by Atelier Anonyme.
As per reports, this year's IIJS had 35000+ attendees, 1200 stalls and 900 exhibitors. International delegates from countries like Belgium, Italy, Israel, Thailand, Turkey and UAE participated in the B2B platform to learn about the latest in the Indian jewellery segment.
Industry stalwarts gave ‘Spectrum Seminars’ at the premises across show days, with topics ranging from insights into running a successful retail jewellery business to the latest technical developments in jewellery manufacturing processes. This edition’s theme, ‘Today’s Vision Tomorrow’s Reality’ offered a special focus on what to expect in the coming months, and advice on taking your business forward.
70 EMG has been associated with GJPEC India for over a decade now, and has successfully managed their signature shows in the past, including IIJW, and the Solitaire Design Awards.
Reportedly, a core team of 20 people worked closely with the GJEPC India organizing committee for a period of 3 months prior to the show. An additional team of about 100 odd event management students and freelancers also got the opportunity to work on IIJS.
An official statement from 70EMG stated:
Security was of prime importance at the venue. The entry badges had different access codes for different visitors, allowing access to specific areas of the exhibition along with entry timings. Badges were only allotted post verification of various documents of the visitors to check their eligibility to attend the exhibition. A fully equipped business centre was setup that provided various facilities such as computers, internet access, meeting rooms, conference rooms, photocopying, and fax. Every hall in the exhibition was divided into different sections and zones. Every zone was handled by a service stall manager.
Keeping the scale of the exhibition in mind, adequate crisis management arrangements were made, right from first aid booths, ambulances to fire extinguishers, hall evacuation plan, and such. Registration procedures, business centers, the media lounge, fumigation plan, cafeterias and coffee shops, parking, and all other elements were executed by a team of about 170 managers & coordinators. Flood prevention measures were also taken considering the monsoon season.
Information kiosks, located at various entrances and central squares as well as coffee shops in various sections of the halls, were manned by trained hostesses who had access to a specially developed interactive floor plan on computers. The exhibition was well-networked with communication facilities across all the halls of the exhibitions.
The 33rd edition of the India International Jewellery Show (IIJS) was held at the Bombay Exhibition Centre (August 4 to 8) and The Lalit Hotel (August 5 to 8) in Mumbai.
