Dubai: The VOD Dubai International Jewellery Show (VOD DIJS), the MENA’s only B2B and B2C jewellery industry mega event, returns for its second instalment on November 14 to 17 at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
Tools such as the pre-promotional road show and hosted buyers program have been designed to give maximum support for the event exhibitors. The road show, the largest of its kind for any Middle Eastern jewellery event, is designed to raise buyers’ awareness and drive exhibitor participation in Dubai’s only B2B and B2C jewellery fair. It will target selected buyers, international brands, boutiques, wholesalers and retailers across the GCC, as well as the greater Middle East, Africa, Europe and Asia. On the other hand, the hosted buyers program pairs top-brand local and international retailers and department stores with wholesalers and event exhibitors to ensure access to unique collections, a competitive advantage, and the chance to build new relationships in the industry.
Recently announced UAE initiatives – such as the new VAT reverse charge mechanism for the jewellery B2B trade, the introduction of long-term investment visas, and 100% company ownership for international investors – are also making VOD DIJS even more enticing for international jewellery producers interested in taking advantage of Dubai’s trading location.
The show promotes all aspects of the global jewellery industry including craftsmanship, production, distribution, precious materials, trends and more. It’s divided into four distinctive districts – Global Brands, Fine Jewellery, Gemstones & Diamonds, and Packaging & Technology – as well as a Trade Area dedicated to exhibitors that are primarily interested in the B2B markets.
VOD DIJS is open from 2 pm to 10 pm on November 14, 15 and 17, 2018 and from 3 pm to 10 pm on Friday, November 16. Entry is free.
