This concept has been studied by businesswoman Pastorini and goes along what she has been doing in recent years, combining her expertise in the Latin American market with knowledge and international contacts in the sector: “This first edition purposely wanted to invite few participants focusing the quality and positive retrospect that these companies have at an international level, as I knew the quality of buyers would bring to this event and it would be necessary from the beginning to guarantee to present the best in the sector”, explains Pastorini.
The idea of inviting only companies from India in this first edition was not by chance, as the businesswoman in recent post-pandemic years has been strengthening ties with the country and has seen a strong growth in investment in technology and social responsibility by these companies, however the businesswoman points out that this concept will not be limited to Indian companies in a future edition. The objective is to bring companies from other countries that have the same values and market vision to take advantage not only of brazilian trade but also of the latin america region as a whole. In addition, she wants to strengthen the Brazilian market by bringing potential partnerships between local and foreign companies, generating more opportunities, jobs and professionalization in the region.
Brazil is recognized as one of the largest producers and exporters of colored gemstones, in addition to having internationally awarded brands and designers. The consumption of jewels and diamonds in Brazil has increased in recent years despite the adversities that the world faces in terms of consumption and Ali saw that this was the ideal time to take advantage.” I believe it is the right time for several reasons, it is a door to my country, to Latin America, to place a region that is still not well positioned in our sector, it is to bring quality people and companies to do business and strengthen more a hub in our industry, it’s a win-win situation to everybody”, completes Ms. Pastorini.
