Visitors to the second edition of the Bharat Diamond Week that will take place from October 8-10, will benefit from competitive pre-Diwali prices, office bearers of the organiser, Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB) have said.
At the show, which will be significantly larger than the previous edition, where over 1,000 visitors from India and across the world did business with 100 Indian exhibitors of polished goods, buyers may get “pre-Diwali bargains”, the BDB said in a release.
Bharat Diamond Bourse Vice-President Mehul Shah, who heads the Bharat Diamond Week project, said: “Since India is a huge manufacturing hub and the show is being held before Diwali, that means prices will be very competitive. Those buyers looking for pre-Diwali bargains will find it a highly attractive time to visit the show. With the Diwali festival starting in the beginning of November, traders will be looking to sell goods ahead of the closure of business for the holiday.”
BDB President Anoop Mehta said: “India is the manufacturing hub of the diamond world, so visiting the Bharat Diamond Week gives access to a complete range of inventory which you simply don’t see at other shows. I can say with total confidence that the show has many exhibitors who don’t participate in any other trade fairs so clients will have access to a whole new world of suppliers.”
Mehta said that the team working on the show are putting in place changes based on learnings from the first edition of the fair held in April. “Our aim is to create optimum conditions for our many small and medium-size members. We aim to stage a show that will bring them maximum benefit because they need help in a world of strong competition in order to show their goods to potential global clients.” He added that select buyers will again be given complimentary hotel rooms to encourage foreign buyers to attend.
Among the new features at the October fair will be on site facilities for checking for diamonds created using the Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) method. Shah said, “It is critical for our business that consumer confidence in our products remains intact. This is absolutely paramount. Consequently, we will have a display of equipment for the detection of such stones so that diamantaires can see the equipment available, how straightforward it is to operate, and the financial outlay involved.”
