India to Host the First Major Gem and Jewellery Show Since Covid-19
India is set to host the India International Jewellery Show (IIJS) Signature 2021 in April – the first major diamond and jewellery trade show since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, IDEX Online reports.
The show, which is expected to host 750 exhibitors, demands that visitors present a recent negative Covid-19 report. The 14th edition of IIJS Signature is hosted by the Gem Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC). The show will take place at the Bombay Exhibition Centre, Goregaon, Mumbai from April 2 to April 7 – six whole days instead of the traditional four in order to prevent crowding.
Colin Shah, GJEPC chairman, said: “It has been more than a year since the industry witnessed a physical show of the magnitude of IIJS Signature. Owing to demand from all segments of the trade, GJEPC is organising IIJS Signature in physical form”.
