The first ever Indo-Australia Jewellery Conclave has been conceptualized in picturesque Sydney on 21-22 May, 2013 at Sheraton on the Park.
The 2-day meet is being organized by The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) with a view to establish business ties involving a select group of Indian jewellery manufacturers and leading jewellery retailers & buying groups across Australia, New Zealand and Fiji islands.
“This is the first-ever Buyer Seller meet of its kind between the two countries designed to facilitate one-on-one meetings and networking opportunities giving Australian buyers deeper insights into India’s manufacturing (production), design prowess and supply chain” according to Vipul Shah, Chairman-GJEPC. He added “GJEPC has over the years held successful meets with regions such as China, Europe, US, Russia/ CIS leading to substantial growth of trade with these countries and we are encouraged to replicate this in Australia”.
The 12 participating jewellery manufacturers from India have been carefully selected and shortlisted by GJEPC based on their excellent capabilities to cater to specific needs of the Australian market in terms of cutting edge design, quality and service.
Mr. Arun Kumar Goel, Consul-General of India in Australia also added “There is an immense potential and a need for relationship building between the two industries and we are happy to offer support to GJEPC in such ventures”.
Australia India Business Council, NSW President Sheba Nandkeolar said “The conclave presents a tremendous opportunity for many of the attendees who may be looking towards India as a sourcing hub for the first time and will enable them to obtain a first-hand understanding of the advanced technologies being used to produce finished jewellery in India.”
