FREIBURG, Germany, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe 2014 has closed its doors with positive results. More than 6,000 jewellery professionals attended the launch event, which brought together suppliers, press, leading industry and governmental associations. Of this number, over 4,280 were leading trade buyers, with the leading visiting countries being Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and Brazil. The show organisers, UBM, were delighted with these figures, viewing this as a substantial and strong base for growth for years to come. Wolfram Diener, Senior Vice President of UBM Asia comments, "The vast majority of our exhibitors and traders view the exhibition as a success. We are very pleased with the positive feedback from the market and see this as a confirmation that the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe is now listed as an important industry event in the jewellery calendar. At the same time, of course, we are inspired to organise an even higher quality show for 2015". A specifically favourable measurement of the positive acknowledgement of the fair is the advanced bookings from the exhibitors. The demand is so great that the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe 2015 will expand into an additional hall at Messe Freiburg. Verena Raub, Distribution at Bellaluce, Germany, said "Our expectations were really exceeded. We hope the interest of the international market will increase over the next few years. Following these positive results of the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe, we will certainly participate again next year".
The next edition of the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe will be held from Sunday 22 March to Wednesday 25 March 2015. The show will begin on a Sunday, to allow smaller regional jewellery businesses to attend easily. Timo Richardon from Carl Schaefer, Germany, commented, "It is clear that the show organisers are very experienced and are willing to do whatever is necessary to ensure the success of the participating exhibitors".
The unique positioning of the event for the medium-priced sector, the international range of exhibitors represented and the quality of the visitors were praised throughout the fair. UBM is filling a much needed gap in the European market. JGF Europe is clearly gaining support from across the region, Ines Lopez Sharma, Managing Director of ILR Collection, Germany, states "We were immediately impressed with the idea of an international fair in Freiburg. Even before the event, the expectations were very high. These expectations were confirmed, especially in the first two days of the fair. The visitor profile was very international".
"Germany is the biggest and most important market for us but we are already very well positioned within this market, so we are looking for new international customers. The first day at the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe was very good. A lot of people visited our booth and have been interested in our handmade Jewellery. I think there lies huge potential in a trade show like this and for us it's the right place to do business", Marcin Zaremski from Mateusz Zaremski Brand, Poland
