Mumbai, 13th September: The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) announces that IIJS Signature 2023 has been extended to a five-day show format owing to the popular demand from participants and the gem & jewellery trade at large.
IIJS Signature will be almost double in size compared with IIJS Signature 2022, with more than 2500 stalls and it is estimated that more than 1300 exhibitors will participate. The largest ever IIJS Signature show to date, spread over an area more than 65,000 sq m, will now be held from 5th to 9th January, 2023 at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai. The show is expected to draw an estimated 32000+ visitors.
Nirav Bhansali, Convener, National Exhibitions Sub-committee, GJEPC, explained, “The magnitude of the upcoming IIJS Signature show will be similar to that of IIJS Premiere 2022. The astonishing success of the August show has created a ripple effect in terms of demand that is expected to last until IIJS Signature. We had been receiving requests to extend IIJS Signature by one day as the four-day format was limiting the visitors’ ability to cover the entire show floor.”
The show is extended by another day making it a 5-Day show similar to the duration of IIJS Premiere, with no additional participation cost to the exhibitors for the extension to facilitate participation from small exhibitors.
The different product sections of IIJS Signature 2023 will include Gold & Gold CZ Studded Jewellery; Diamond, Gemstone & Other Studded Jewellery; Loose stones, Lab-grown diamonds; Silver Jewellery, Artefacts & Gifting Items; Laboratories & Education; and Machinery & Allied.The Combo Space Application form for the two shows, IIJS Signature 2023 and IIJS Tritiya 2023, is already LIVE and the Registration ends on 15th September, 2022.
