Dear Esteemed Visitor,

Greetings from the GJEPC!!!

We hope you, your family and your staff members are safe and healthy.

The pandemic of Covid-19 has turned our lives upside down and has brought businesses to standstill across the globe. The Gem & Jewellery industry is amongst the most affected & impacted industry by the pandemic of Covid-19. However, The Gem & Jewellery industry in India stood together in these difficult and challenging times and have supported each other in its best possible ways. GJEPC also tried to do its best and contributed 51 crores from its corpus for the nation, providing relief to daily wage karigars and building health infrastructure to fight Covid-19 in different states.

We hoped for a miracle to happen till the last moment and try to hold IIJS Premiere 2020 which is not to be. Considering the current situation of Covid-19 in India and keeping in mind the well-being and safety of our members, exhibitors, visitors & all the involved stakeholders and further adhering to the government's decision of restricting mass public gathering to contain & control the spread of Covid-19, we at GJEPC have decided to postpone IIJS Premiere 2020 show scheduled from 6th – 10th August 2020 at Bombay Exhibition Centre, Mumbai to January 2021. The exact show date for January 2021 will be informed to you in due course.

We hope this rescheduling of date will certainly provide the required time & opportunity to you to replan your visit at IIJS Premiere, January 2021. This will also help us to collectively revive our industry for better prospects in future.

About IIJS PREMIERE 2021 (JANUARY): "IIJS Premiere 2021 will be the first show of the calendar year, to be held maintaining all safety norms post Covid-19. We will be taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of all our exhibitors and visitors during the show. The IIJS Premiere 2021 now scheduled in the slot of IIJS Signature 2021 is positioned with the look, feel and delivery of both shows combined together. The show will be planned on a grander scale with more opportunities to explore. We look forward to welcome everyone to the show and we are confident that the start of the fresh year in 2021, will give our G & J trade more reasons to celebrate.

For Pre. Registered Visitors of IIJS Premiere 2020 : We would like to inform you that your visitor pre. registration for IIJS Premiere 2020 will be carried forward for the next edition of IIJS Premiere scheduled in January 2021. We will keep you updated on the updates about the show.

We hope you would understand & appreciate the decision taken by GJEPC and we sincerely request your continuous support and cooperation.
