On October 14th, the 47th Istanbul Jewelry Show came to a close, drawing in 22 percent more attendees than 2017. The show hosted close to 19,000 industry professionals as well as 1,000 interested buyers. On top of that, over 800 jewelry brands were present during the event.
Founding partner of UBM Rotaforte (show organizers), Sermin Cengiz said that “We are more than glad to have completed our exhibition successfully, which sets the agenda of all professionals of the sector and the global jewelry industry alike. It is a source of pride for us that, despite being an eight-day exhibition consisting of two four-day parts, Istanbul Jewelry Show helped create around 80 percent of the jewelry exports of our country. Aware of the fact that every Istanbul Jewelry Show is a major gateway opening our jewelry industry to the world and makes significant contributions to our national economy, we’ve already started working hard to make even greater achievements with our exhibitions in 2019.”
In comparing 2017's numbers, October 2018's event revealed a 39 percent boost in attendees from other countries as well as a 10 percent increase in local visitors. Visit istanbuljewelryshow.com for more information on the March 2019 edition of the show.
