INFORMA Markets Jewellery and Atelier Technology jointly launched Jewellery & Gem Digital World (J&G Digital World), paving the way for a global jewellery marketplace that is scheduled to make its debut on Oct 27 – 29, 2020.
During those days, J&G Digital World will be live for 24 hours a day with exhibitor’s individual team members having the flexibility of setting the time when they will be available to serve buyers.
Trade buyer registration has been open since Sept 11 and will remain so until Oct 29, allowing thousands of buyers and more than 800 suppliers to participate in the pilot programme.
With a target to capture the real value of in-person events in a virtual setting, four more digital events are set to be launched in 2021.
“As the Covid-19 situation continues to evolve and the outlook for physical international trade shows remain uncertain, we are turning the world’s biggest B2B jewellery marketplace to an online format this year through J&G Digital World,” Informa Markets (Asia) senior vice president David Bondi said.
“This digital event is optimised to spark genuine conversations, facilitate efficient digital product meetings and ultimately, build business relationships, regardless of time zones and distance,” he added. – Sept 16, 2020
