As September is just around the corner, DITP and GIT are both geared up for hosting one of Asia’s largest gems and jewelry trade fairs.
Bangkok, 9 August 2022 – Mr. Phusit Ratanakul Sereroengrit, Director-General of the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP), and Mr. Sumeth Prasongpongchai, Director of the Gem and Jewelry Institute of Thailand (Public Organization) or GIT, jointly presided over the press conference of the launch of the 67th Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair (BGJF), scheduled to take place between 7-11 September at Challenger Hall 1-3, IMPACT Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok, Thailand. The fair, the first full-scale physical event after a long pause for almost two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be attended by over 800 exhibitors and include over 1,800 booths. At least 10,000 visitors and at least 1,200 million baht of revenue are expected.
“While the gems and jewelry sector faced challenges from all sides over the past two years, now that the COVID-19 situation has improved and restrictions on international travel have eased, we are back to business as usual. We hope the 67th Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair will contribute to the export of Thai gems and jewelry products and secure Thailand’s place as a global hub of gem and jewelry trade,” said Mr. Phusit
Mr. Sumet Prasongpongchai, GIT Director, said that this fair is more special than the previous ones as DIPT has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with GIT to co-organize the Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair. To ensure success of the event, both organizations have pledged to employ their strengths, networks, and allies to promote it and invite prominent figures in the industry to participate in the fair. He assures that the fair will return to its former splendor and be worth the two-year wait.
