CIBJO Congress in Dubai Postponed to 2021
CIBJO, The World Jewellery Confederation, has announced that its annual congress, originally scheduled for October 5 to 7, 2020 in Dubai, has been postponed to 2021 as a result of the coronavirus’ global spread.
According to Mining Weekly, the decision was taken in consultation with the event’s host, the Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre (DMCC).
Gaetano Cavalieri, CIBJO President, said in a statement: “This is the first time that we have had to postpone a Cibjo congress, but under the circumstances it was definitely the most prudent action to take […] Much of our operation is now taking place online, including the work of our various commissions and committees and this will continue at full pace”. Cavalieri concluded by saying that the congress “is an event at which we should meet face to face, and that hopefully will be possible once again in 2021”.
