The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) has announced that its flagship trade show, the India International Jewellery Show (IIJS) Premiere 2021, will be organised in physical form from 15 to 19 September 2021.
In a first, the show will be held outside Mumbai. Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) in Bengaluru will play host to the upcoming edition.
Colin Shah, Chairman, GJEPC, said, “We are delighted to announce the 37th edition of IIJS Premiere 2021. Ensuring that all protocols are followed will be our top priority. We are looking forward to the show and hoping to meet the sourcing needs of buyers for the upcoming festive season. An event of this magnitude needs a great venue, so we are glad that BIEC stepped up to help us organise it. I would like to express my gratitude to the Central and Karnataka state governments for offering all the support in organising the first physical show after the lockdown.”
Shailesh Sangani, Convener, Exhibitions, GJEPC, said, “We have finalised Bengaluru as our destination to host IIJS Premiere this year, owing to the venue constraints in Mumbai. The Karnataka govt. was quick to offer all the necessary approvals to organise the show. Shifting the venue has not affected the participants' enthusiasm, as evident from the applications received from 1,275 companies for 2,444 stalls. As always, the security of this show will be handled by Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), which has already completed the initial recce visit of the location.”
Mansukh Kothari, Co-convener, National Exhibitions, GJEPC, said, “We have planned a series of road shows to promote IIJS Premiere in major cities including Mumbai, Cochin, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi, Lucknow, and Kolkata.”
The previous edition of IIJS was held virtually, from 8 to 12 January 2021.
More than 30,000 visitors are expected, according to organisers. Registrations for the upcoming edition will be processed online. Since this is the GJEPC’s first physical trade show after the lockdown, it will follow all Covid19 protocols stringently to ensure safety, organisers added.
One dose of vaccine certificate is compulsory along with RT-PCR negative report (within 48 hrs). For double-vaccinated attendees, RT-PCR test is not required.
IIJS Premiere 2021 booth allotment will be from 9 to 14 August 2021.
More than 30,000 visitors expected and 1,275 applications have been received for 2,444 stalls at the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council’s flagship trade show.
