JGTD 2024 announces the rescheduling

Nov 28, 2023

Jewellery, Gem & Technology in Dubai (JGTD) has unveiled the rescheduled dates and a new venue for its highly anticipated third edition. Originally slated for February 6 to 8, 2024, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the event will now take place from November 12 to 14, 2024, at Halls 1 & 2 South of the Dubai Exhibition Centre (DEC).

The DEC, covering 45,000 square meters in the Expo/District 2020 neighborhood, provides a versatile meeting space equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. Its strategic location near the Dubai Metro Route 2020 station ensures convenient transportation and easy access to attractions, all within a 30-minute drive, with the luxurious Dubai Marina just 20 minutes away.

The rescheduled dates align with a crucial period in the B2B sourcing calendar, facilitating last-minute orders within a six-hour flying distance from Dubai. This strategic move aims to ensure timely replenishment of inventory for the holiday season and the upcoming year, benefiting the global B2B community.

Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets, expressed enthusiasm for the relocation to DEC, solidifying JGTD’s global position as a meeting point for discovering new products and building connections. Marco Carniello, Global Exhibition Director for Jewellery & Fashion of Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), emphasized the strategic choice of the new show dates to accommodate shorter sourcing cycles.

JGTD’s third edition is set to feature products from around 400 exhibitors representing 25 countries and regions. Highlights include luxury jewellery collections, loose diamonds, coloured gemstones, jewellery mountings, jewellery manufacturing technologies, and lab-grown diamonds, all conveniently located in a single venue.

Powered by DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodities Centre) and Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group (DGJG), JGTD is positioned as a leading hub for the global gem and jewellery industry. Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and CEO of DMCC, highlighted Dubai’s role as a B2B trading hub, especially in polished diamond trade.

Tawhid Abdulla, Chairman of DGJG, anticipates increased efficiency for jewellers to replenish their inventory with the changes in dates and venue. The event’s move is seen as an opportunity to inject fresh energy and perspectives.

JGTD 2024 expects the debut of six new pavilions representing Japan, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and the US. With support from the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) of India, the event aims to attract buying groups from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and diverse regions across Africa.

Building upon the success of its previous editions, the 2023 show at DWTC drew buyers from 95 countries and regions, with a 20% increase in attendance compared to the inaugural edition. The third edition aims to continue this momentum, providing an enriched product sourcing experience for buyers.
