DMCC, the Government of Dubai Authority on commodities trade and enterprise, confirmed its continued support for Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai (JGT Dubai) as the official partner of its second edition to be held in February 2023.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DMCC, and Martin Leake, Special Adviser – Precious Stones, DMCC, took part in a press conference arranged to announce the details of the upcoming JGT Dubai 2023, along with other key speakers including David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia, Corrado Peraboni, Chief Executive Officer of Italian Exhibition Group, and Tawhid Abdullah, Chairman of Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group.
Bin Sulayem said: “As we reinforce our role as the number one global diamond trade hub, our status as the world’s largest physical gold trade hub, and significantly increase our role in coloured gemstones, supporting a leading trade show like JGT Dubai is a natural step. Following on from the overwhelming success of the inaugural edition last year, JGT Dubai 2023 is set to connect key stakeholders from across the industry and unlock a host of trade opportunities.”
The co-organisers of JGT Dubai, Informa Markets and Italian Exhibition Group, said: “We are pleased to announce the second edition of JGT Dubai, an event generated from the effective mix of the strategic assets of IEG and Informa Markets together with DMCC and Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group.”
