Istanbul Jewelry Show is set to host its 50th event in its 36-year history this coming October.
The event, set in Europe’s most populous city, will run from 7-10 October 2021 and is sponsored by HRD Antwerp.
Staged in accordance with new Informa Allsecure health and security standards, the event will take place at Istanbul Fair Center, CNR Expo.
Catering to the jewellery industry since 1986, Istanbul Jewelry Show fairs are organised by Informa Markets, which claims to be the world’s biggest organiser of such fairs.
Informa Markets has a longstanding background in the industry with 17 jewellery fairs organised across seven countries.
Şermin Cengiz, founding partner of UBM Rotaforte, commented: “Fairs make great contribution not only to their respective industries but also to secondary industries before and during [the] fair, while producing [a] source of income to more than 100 subsectors from transportation to accommodation, from food and beverage to booth producers.
“Istanbul Jewelry Shows in March and October 2019 generated an income of 164.2 million Turkish Lira [£14 million] for secondary industries according to [the] UFI calculation method, excluding orders and booth rentals during the fair.
“During 2019 in Turkey, 25,828,251 visitors were hosted at 482 exhibitions. Despite the decline of such figures in fairs postponed [or] cancelled in 2020, Turkey will keep growing in […] future years.
“This year, there is an important milestone for Istanbul Jewelry Show which has been organised for 36 years.
“This fair will be our 50th fair. Improving in parallel with the growth of [the] jewellery industry since 1986, our fair will rapidly adapt to the new normal and keep being a competent address for the worldwide jewellery industry, mainly including Turkish jewelry industry.”
