JGT Dubai 2023 to be held at Dubai World Trade Centre.

DMCC, the world’s flagship free zone and the Dubai government’s trade and enterprise body, has confirmed its support for Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai (JGT Dubai) as the official partner of its second edition, to be held in February 2023.

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and CEO of DMCC, and Martin Leek, Special Advisor for Gem, DMCC, attended the press conference organised to announce details of the upcoming JGT Dubai 2023, along with other key speakers including David Bondi, Senior Vice President, Informa Markets Asia, Corrado Peraboni, Chief Executive Officer, Italian Exhibition Group, and Tawhid Abdullah, Chairman of Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group.

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, executive chairman and CEO of DMCC, said: “DMCC has played a key role in positioning the emirate as a hub for global trade, especially in commodities such as diamonds and gold. We have achieved this through world-class facilities and services, a robust and business-friendly operating environment, and a full calendar of events featuring industry leaders. As we consolidate our role as the number one global diamond trading hub, our status as the world’s largest physical gold trading hub and significantly enhance our role in coloured gemstones, supporting a leading trade show like JGT Dubai is a natural step.” Following the resounding success of the first show last year, JGT Dubai 2023 will help bring together key stakeholders across the industry and open up a host of trading opportunities.”

JGT Dubai brings together industry experts and practitioners to network and strengthen partnerships, unlock the full potential of the global market and elevate the entire gem and jewellery ecosystem. These goals are in line with DMCC’s vision and reaffirm the vital role it plays in connecting the world through Dubai.

The co-organisers of JGT Dubai, Informa Markets and Italian Exhibition Group, said, “We are pleased to announce the second edition of JGT Dubai, an event created through the effective combination of the strategic assets of IEG and Informa Markets together with DMCC and Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group. The partners’ experience has led to the creation of an innovative and global centre which, also through a partnership with ITA, the Italian trade agency, has already succeeded in demonstrating the potential for interest in finished jewellery and components, gold, silver and technology to a target audience of buyers focused on those markets that have made the Emirates’ ‘City of Gold’ their commercial capital. As the first global event of its kind in 2023 – a year in which the world is entering a new phase of renaissance – JGT Dubai takes on a greater meaning. It signals the beginning of a season of sourcing, networking and collaboration. More importantly, it represents a time of optimism, growth and renewal. With the gradual opening of borders and the expected revival of air travel, we expect to see greater participation from international suppliers and buyers when the fair opens its doors in February.”

Held under the slogan ‘Business Hub’, JGT Dubai aims to become one of the best places for B2B sourcing after its opening in February this year. The exhibition offers buyers exclusive access to an outstanding list of international manufacturers, designers and jewellery ateliers, as well as the opportunity to explore and discover cutting-edge trends in jewellery, gemstones and industry-related technologies and services.

JGT Dubai 2022 attracted over 4,000 visitors from 100 countries. The inaugural edition attracted more than 200 wholesalers and retailers and brands from Eastern Europe, the Middle East, South America and South Asia, as well as over 300 exhibitors from 23 countries, showcasing jewellery, diamonds and coloured gemstones, technology solutions and equipment.

JGT Dubai 2023 will take place from February 12th to 14th at the Dubai World Trade Centre. It will be jointly organised by Informa Markets Jewellery and Italian Exhibition Group (IEG) and supported by DMCC and Dubai Gold and Jewellery Group (DGJG).
