The 9th edition of North India’s biggest international jewellery trade show – The Delhi Jewellery & Gem Fair (DJGF) -- is going to take place in New Delhi at Pragati Maidan from October 2 to October 4, 2021.

The three-day expo will see participation of 200 + exhibitors, 850 + traditional, modern and innovative designer brands and 15000+ unique designs. It will see a congregation of prime Jewellers and import and export merchants amongst other key industry stakeholders.

The show is strongly supported by the Bullion & Jewellers Association (IBJA), Gems & Jewellery Trade Council of India, Delhi Jewellers Association, Maliwada Jewellers Association, Meerut Bullion Traders Association, All India Gems and Jewellery Trade Federation, and many more.

Speaking on the return of DJGF in its 9th edition in the physical format, Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, Informa Markets in India said that the Gems and Jewellery industry is one of the biggest businesses in India, playing a crucial role in the Indian economy. While India’s gold and diamond trade accounted for 7.5% of India’s GDP, India’s total merchandise exports accounted for 14%.

Generating massive employment opportunities, the sector is likely to employ 8.23 million persons by 2022, from 5 million in 2020.

In the coming years, the organised players in the industry will continue to play a fundamental role as they have the potential to adapt to the consumer and economic changes. The established brands not only provide variety in terms of products and designs, but they also guide the organised market and open up opportunities to grow. Moreover, the world saw a shift in the consumer mindset in this ongoing pandemic.

A recent industry report said the online gold market in India, still nascent, at 1-2% growth, is witnessing huge demand from both digital players who view this market as an opportunity and established jewellers who view this market as a required addition to their brick-and-mortar model.

The Delhi Jewellery and Gem Fair will showcase this industry in a structured setting for the buyer community by giving them confidence, variety, authenticity and transparency. North India is the country’s major market known for its affinity to gleaming and statement jewellery pieces, including Mughal antique, gold, diamond, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, polkis, kundan and navratna jewellery, to name a few which will be offered at our show. With an array of authentic and unique jewellery and commencing just before the wedding and festive season when jewellers will see higher sales and footfalls, DJGF promises growth for the industry.

The show will also see participation of cities such as New Delhi, Jaipur, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Ambala to name a few.

It will have Jewellery wholesalers, retailers, importers and exporters, jewellery manufacturers, diamond, gemstone, pearl suppliers and traders, precious metal and jewellery mounting traders and suppliers, and representatives from trade and governmental organisations, all under one roof to meet, connect, network and grow their business.

Exhibitors will present products of different styles and designs in gold, diamonds, gemstones, silver and loose stones, along with machinery. Over 850 different kinds of brands will be showcased.

The expo will also hold a knowledge seminar conducted by industry experts.
