Her Excellency Mona Al Marri, Vice Chairman and Managing Director of the Dubai Media Council and General Manager of the Dubai Government Media Office, officially opened the inaugural Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai (JGT Dubai) exhibition, the first B2B face-to-face industry event at the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC) this year. After the inauguration, Al Murray toured the exhibition with other dignitaries.
JGT Dubai, the region’s only B2B event for the jewelry industry, is co-hosted by Informa Markets Jewellery and Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) from February 22-24. A total of 320 companies from 23 countries are taking part in the exhibition.
Her Excellency Mona Al Marri said that Dubai’s hosting of the inaugural edition of JGT Dubai is yet another testimony to the city’s ability to provide an exceptional platform for the global community to come together to share knowledge and experiences. She said the event also demonstrates Dubai’s commitment to stimulate the development and growth of vital industries and increase market and trade activity.
The three-day exhibition brings together suppliers from Belgium, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Israel, Turkey, UAE and other key sourcing destinations under one roof. The B2B show also features separate expositions dedicated to key product categories, and each section offers buyers opportunities to meet and interact, as well as a chance to start sourcing for 2022.
