Informa Markets Jewellery and Atelier Technology jointly launched today Jewellery & Gem Digital World (J&G Digital World), the first in a series of virtual events that will bring the global jewellery marketplace right to your home.
Scheduled for October 27 – 29, 2020, J&G Digital World will be live 24 hours a day during the event period with exhibitors’ individual team members having the flexibility of setting the time when they will be available to serve buyers. The platform is in English for the pilot event, with the Chinese-language interface and other enhanced features slated for release next year.
Trade buyer registration has commenced and will remain open until 29 October. Thousands of buyers and more than 800 suppliers are anticipated to participate in the pilot programme, which is focused on capturing the real value of in-person events in a virtual setting. Four more digital events will be launched in 2021.
“As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and the outlook for physical international trade shows remains uncertain, Jewellery & Gem World 2020, the world’s biggest B2B jewellery marketplace, is pivoting to an online format this year through J&G Digital World. This digital event is optimised to spark genuine conversations, facilitate efficient digital product meetings, and ultimately, build business relationships, regardless of time zones and distance,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia.
Dominic Hill, Founder and CEO of Atelier Technology, added, “Until today, matchmaking services in virtual events have been simplistic and not very effective to either buyer or vendor. Now with our intelligent wishlists and walk-the-show features, we are raising the bar, giving buyers and vendors a genuine reason to expect more from digital networking tools.”
The interactive platform’s powerful features include targeted finished jewellery product meetings, Trend Walls, a Dynamic Show Guide and a new presentation mode.
