The ‘Hyderabad Jewellery, Pearl and Gem Fair’ (HJF) all set to sparkle in its 10th edition beginning at HICC Novotel in Hitec City from June 9.
The three-day trade extravaganza of India’s jewellers by UBM India is bringing over 150 jewellers, import and export merchants and industry associations to the city.
The signature show, organised by UBM India will be held in partnership with ‘Hitech Jewellery Manufacturers Association’ (HJMA) A stunning array of Victorian, Nizam and Antique Jewellery collections, to be presented by over 35 manufacturers from Hyderabad and surrounding regions, is anticipated to steal the show this year.
Other highlights of the fair include insightful technical seminars by Gem and Jewellery, Skill Council India (GJSCI) on ‘Skill Development’ & Gemological Institute of America (GIA) on ‘Spotlight on Synthetics’.
Commenting on the announcement of the HJF, Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “The Indian Gems & Jewellery Industry is the back bone of the economy. With a market size estimate of Rs three lakh crore per annum, the sector is the second highest employer after the IT industry, employing roughly 2.5 million people.
According to industry reports, it is also witnessing changes in consumer preferences worldwide. Consumers in India are youngsters who look for bespoke designs, seasonally trending styles, and indulge in omni-channel shopping experiences buying digitally as well as from brick and mortar stores.
The organised jewellers are able to fulfil their expectations better than unorganised players, especially with the implementation of progressive steps like the GST.”
“This year, we have also reached an important milestone and achieved a new momentum with the 10th anniversary of our fair,” he said.
Mahender Tayal, President HJMA & Regional Director GJEPC said, “Over the past decade, this fruitful platform has been one-of-its-kind in the region and has not only connected the traders with the retail community, but also established a long standing relationship between them.
Significantly, the HJF has encouraged the much-needed sharing of intelligence and conducting of business, in the ever-changing economic scenario. Visitors to the HJF 2017 can look forward to an array of the finest jewellery, studded with pearls, ruby, emerald and diamonds.”
