Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council hosts the ‘Trends Jewellery Forecasting (TJF) Seminar’

The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) organized the Trend Jewellery Forecasting Seminar (TJF Seminar) on February 25and 26, 2014 in Mumbai. The two day seminar aimed at educating the members and students of Gem & Jewellery Industry on latest jewellery trends of specific markets namely Europe and USA. Trend Vision Jewellery + Forecasting, an internationally renowned consulting firm based in Italy and also an Independent division of Vicenza Fair conducted this prestigious Seminar cum Workshop.

According to latest export figures, Indian G&J export from Jan-Dec2013 to US stands at US$ 4793.44 Million and that to Europe is US$ 3307.63 Million. This was a huge business opportunity and emerged the need to constantly enhance and upgrade India’s jewelry design prowess. This initiative was a part of GJEPC’s continuous effort to train and equip the Indian Manufacturers with the latest in global trends and consumer preferences.

Speaking about this initiative, Mr. Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC said, “Indian products have without doubt created a niche for itself due to its flair of combining contemporary sensibilities with traditional aesthetics. US & Europe remain one of the major markets for Indian exports & understanding the trends prevalent in these countries , becomes  imperative. Extensive knowledge of the market & high sensitivity towards consumer interest is essential in our trade, therefore, through the TJF, GJEPC hopes to achieve Design sensibilities and strategic awareness to further penetrate into these key markets.”

I would like to thank the Council for having forwarded the opportunity to sharing our knowledge & research in India. At TJF we believe that education is important for the development of any industry. Therefore, through TJF we hope to provide the Indian Gem & Jewellery the strategic direction that is required at this point in time to compete at the global level” said Ms. Paolo De Luca, Creative Director & Forecaster, Trend Vision Jewellery + Forecasting.

Following the success of 2011 when this seminar had received acceptance by the members, the Council will organize this structured two day seminar & workshop session for the industry. The workshop will witness participation of eminent Industry personalities speaking on pre-defined topics. Having identified US & Europe as the key export destinations, the next step to create “Brand India” would be to ensure dominance in these centers and therefore understanding the market trends is the need of the hour.
