Organisers for the Istanbul Jewelry Show (IJS) have announced that it has been postponed and rescheduled to take place on 24-27 March 2022.
Originally due to happen between 27-30 May 2021, the decision to delay the event followed a consultation with the industry and the IJS stakeholders.
The show will remain at the CNR Expo, Istanbul Fair Center, which is also set to host the October edition due to be held as planned on 7-10 October 2021.
In a statement, the organisers said: “Our top priority is the safety and success of our colleagues, partners, customers, and exhibitors.
“We aim to deliver the high-standard event that our attendees and exhibitors rightly expect and where the industry can receive the maximum benefit in coming together.”
They added that although Informa continues to “successfully and safely run events” using the AllSecure Standards, delaying the trade show is “the right decision to achieve a more prosperous and accessible event, in consideration of the continuing restrictions on international travel”.
It is not the first time the show has been rescheduled, as the original event had been set to take place between 19-22 March 2020.
However, due to the ongoing pandemic, the IJS was first moved to June 2020, then March 2021, before again being rescheduled to May 2021 and finally to March 2022.
