The first gem and jewellery show of its kind takes place in Geneva with visitors travelling from around the world.
GemGenève, the new Geneva based International gem and jewellery show, had huge success with its inaugural show last month. The event welcomed gem and jewellery dealers and collectors from around the world who attended to visit stands from 147 exhibitors showcasing the latest in the gem stones and luxury jewellery.
Around 4,300 people visited the event in total with around fifty per cent being from Switzerland itself and the other half travelling from all around the world to take part. Co-founders Mr Thomas Faerber and Mr Ronny Totah were delighted at the overwhelmingly positive response they received from both exhibitors and visitors.
“OUR OBJECTIVE WAS TO LAUNCH A NEW HIGH-END TRADE EXHIBITION REVEALING THE TRUE SPIRIT OF OUR JEWELLERY WORLD. WE WERE THRILLED TO SEE THE INCREDIBLY POSITIVE ATMOSPHERE SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE SHOW ” – Ida Faerber, daughter of Thomas Faerber.
“SIMPLY SAID, TO SEE OUR EXHIBITORS FEELING AT HOME AT GEMGENÈVE, GAVE US THE GREATEST SATISFACTION. THE OVERALL LEVEL OF CONTENTMENT WAS ABOVE OUR EXPECTATIONS” – said Nadège Totah, daughter of Ronny Totah.
As well as exhibition stalls the event included talks and masterclasses from industry experts. Gemstone, diamond and pearl merchants, antique jewellery dealers, jewelers, manufacturers, independent designers, emerging talents and gemological laboratories all came together at the event.
The inaugural show was held May 10-13, at Palexpo, Geneva’s leading center for European exhibitions and conventions. The dates were co-ordinated to coincide with the major Geneva jewellery and watch auctions, during which the city became a center of luxury.
