Jewellery, watches, gems and luxury accessories worth an estimated value of US$ 1 billion will go on sale to members of the public and trade. Open free of charge, show organisers UBM AEM anticipate over 50,000 visitors will descend on the 21,000 square metre treasure trove over the course of 5 days. “Jewellery Arabia 2018 is a vibrant platform for jewellers to showcase their latest products in the dynamic Middle East market. This well-established exhibition offers consumers and trade visitors alike a once a year opportunity to browse the largest selection of jewellery and watches in the Middle East, stay abreast of trends, discover new designers and source one off pieces in a unique atmosphere,” said Fawzi Al Shehabi, UBM AEM Director of Sales and Marketing.
World famous watch and jewellery houses will be making a return appearance at Jewellery Arabia 2018, including leading brands. Many of these high profile international exhibitors will use the event as a platform to introduce exclusive collections and limited edition pieces to the Middle East collectors’ market.
Complementing these iconic brands are national groups from leading jewellery export countries. They include large returning delegations of the finest retailers, designers and manufacturers from Bahrain, Hong Kong, India, Lebanon, Russia, Singapore and Thailand, and Italy too, of course. Collectively, these groups reflect the very best manufacturing capabilities, design expertise and gemological resources that their respective countries have to offer.
Visitors can also enjoy free-to-attend daily jewellery education seminars led by world’s foremost authority on gemmology, the Gemmological Institute of America (GIA).
