Bangkok: February, 2021 – The Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) will change the 66th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair scheduled for February 2021 from a physical fair to become the BGJF Virtual Trade Fair in May 2021 in order to ensure the continuity of the trade show and provide trading opportunities for the gems and jewelry industry during the New Normal.
For the past few months, the DITP has been closely monitoring the situation relating to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand and other countries. While Thailand has been able to limit the spread of the virus, especially during the new wave of the disease, the health and safety of industry stakeholders are always our priority. Therefore, DITP has decided to shift the 66th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair, originally scheduled for 23-27 February 2021, to become an online event called the BGJF Virtual Trade Fair to be organized in May 2021.
The main objective of BGJF Virtual Trade Fair is to offer trading opportunities to exporters of gems and jewelry products through online channels in order to overcome the challenges of doing business while the threat of the COVID-19 virus continues. This online edition of the fair will enable domestic and international exhibitors to meet and trade with buyers from around the world, offering a safe opportunity to conduct business while international travel is restricted.
In addition, the 67th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair will be organized as a hybrid fair on 11-15 September 2021 at Challenger Halls, IMPACT Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok.
