International Jewellery London Show surpasses exhibitor numbers expectations

International Jewellery Show

More than 600 jewellery exhibitors showcased their wares at the latest International Jewellery London (IJL) this month.

The event ran from 2-5 September at Earls Court, following bold claims by show organiser Reed Exhibitions that it would boast record exhibitor numbers.
 
In all, there were 608 exhibitors of which 156 were brand new to the event. The organiser expects 9,000 visitors, pending an ABC audit.

Last year visitor numbers stayed level, while exhibitor numbers increased.
 
“These are tough times for everyone, but the amount of order taking done at the show proves how resilient and innovative the jewellery industry is,” said event director Sam Willoughby.

“This year, we really focused on the visitor quality and the look and feel of IJL, and created a more luxurious setting which was in line with the high profile designer brands and manufacturers showcasing their work.”

A stricter registration process was enforced at the 2012 edition to ensure higher quality visitors attended the trade-only show.
