GL events is the official supplier to the International Jewellery Week which will take place from 21 to 24 November 2012 in Dubai.
More than 250 jewellers from 25 countries will be at the Dubai World Trade Centre developing contacts and concluding sparkling deals. The fair has existed for 17 years and is the largest event in the jewellery sector in the Middle East: it welcomes over 20,000 wealthy visitors from around the world.
For those who love sparkling stones and precious metals, it is a fantastic opportunity to discover all the latest jewellery designs in a single place. Divided into ten sectors, such as "Luxury Avenue" (showcasing top of the range designers), "Creative Avenue" (presenting the latest innovations and designs), "European Avenue" (grouping together European master jewellers) and "Glam Avenue" (dedicated to charm and beauty), the fair provides a truly comprehensive offer to meet the expectations of every visitor. A prize draw is even organised and the lucky winner will be able to have tailor-made wedding jewellery designed.
The high point of the week is the Jewellery Design Awards (established in 2008) which reward the work of jewellers from all corners of the world based on criteria such as design, innovation and creativity. The event programme includes the innovation, wedding jewellery and Arab inspiration prizes, for amateur jewellers. Professional jewellers also compete for an innovation prize and there is a competition specifically devoted to designers from the United Arab Emirates. This year, for the first time, art objects will be included in the competition!
