The i2i Events Group will look to expand its Jewellery Show London next year after attracting more than 2,000 visitors to its first edition.
 
The boutique event was at Somerset House from 12 to 13 June and featured 90 selected collections from British and international jewellery designers and brands. Exhibition director Julie Driscoll said an “unprecedented” number of exhibitors had already re-applied for next year, along with companies on the waiting list for its debut event.
 
“We are delighted with the success of this launch event and the positive support from our sponsor Pandora and the whole industry,” she said. “The UK’s jewellery sector continues to show great resilience and we look forward to ensuring that The Jewellery Show London goes on to become a key date on the industry calendar and an essential meeting point for everyone to come together.”
 
Highlights over the two days included a champagne reception and catwalk show, along with a broad seminar programme featuring Links of London founder Annoushka Ducas and World Gold Council head of investment Eily Ong.
 
Up-and-coming designers were among the collections on display including Cindy Dennis Mangan and Claire English.
 
Driscoll said the event’s June timeframe was also welcomed by the industry as the first Christmas buying opportunity and hinted at a bigger second outing in June next year.
 
“The Jewellery Show London reaffirmed there are some incredibly innovative retail jewellers operating across the country who know that discovering new jewellery brands and collections at events such as ours is what will keep them ahead of their competitors,” she added. “We are really excited about building on this hugely successful launch.”
 
A Birmingham edition of the Jewellery Show will be held from 3 to 7 February 2013 alongside Spring Fair.
