It received an overwhelming response from the neighbouring states of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, as well as Maharashtra  amongst others, further validating it as a reputed industry platform and the biggest jewellery and gemstone sourcing destination for jewellers.

One of the key highlights of the expo was the three-day insightful seminar by the National Institute of Diamond & Gems (NIDG) and Delhi Gem & Jewellery Institute (DGL).

The one stop tech park will have the latest technological innovations and will be able to accommodate over 10,000 stores."

Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India, said,  "In the coming years, growth in the Gems and Jewellery sector will be largely contributed by the development of retailers and brands. Established brands are steadily steering the organised market and are opening opportunities for growth. The organised sector will continue to play a fundamental role as it has the potential to adapt to the consumer and economic changes. The Delhi Jewellery and Gem Fair is a gateway to the organized Indian jewellery market with a focus on the North, offering a fine experience along with special events - Seminars, Workshops, Panel discussions, and a Fashion Show."
