Event; Mr. Tim Porter, Business Development Director – India; Mr. Jalaj Srivastava, MD, Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIDC) and Mr. Sanjay Kothari, Convener, PM&BD Subcommittee, Gems & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC).

Speaking at the inauguration function, Mr Allsopp said, “We are proud to launch JCK New Delhi in India, which is a milestone for us. The Indian economy is booming at 8 % per annum and so is the jewellery sector. Considering this fact, we felt that the environment was very conducive and budding with potential for many more B2B exhibitions. We are extremely obliged by the support we have received from the GJEPC and all other trade bodies to make this event a success.”

Elucidating on the Indian jewellery industry, Mr Kothari mentioned, “JCK and other such jewellery exhibitions are an ideal way to explore the domestic jewellery markets.

The tie-up with Reed Exhibitions is on a very healthy competitive platform and would only help benefit the industry.”

Elaborating further Mr Srivastava said, “The Delhi jewellery market though huge is very unstructured and occupies only 7% of the total market share. Reed Exhibitions by choosing Delhi as their venue for JCK will only enhance this industry.”
