IGI’s First Ever International D Show to be Hosted in Dubai

The show will host select manufacturers from India and Turkey as well as from the GCC. 

IGI GLOBAL (April 19, 2023) – After 14 successful editions in India, the International Gemological Institute (IGI), is all set to host its first-ever international edition of the IGI D Show in Dubai from May 5-7, 2023 at the Hotel Hilton Al Habtoor City, Dubai. Over the years, D Show has evolved from a buyer-seller meet to a community-oriented, networking event of like-minded individuals who meticulously work towards bringing about an evolution in the global gem and jewelry industry.  

The show will witness 33 handpicked manufacturers from India, Turkey and the GCC who are all set to exhibit their exclusive diamond creations after undergoing stringent checks to fulfill parameters of quality, trends, services as well as global reputation. “The core of all editions of the IGI D Show has been thought-provoking ideas, quality designs and long-lasting relationships. Over the years, we have created and curated a community of visionaries and enthusiasts who will bring a paradigm shift in the industry. The international edition is a step towards integrating with international players who share similar ideas and visions for the global fraternity,” said Tehmasp Printer, President and Managing Director of IGI India.  

“The IGI D Show has become an organized marketplace for industry members to network, share ideas and discuss growth plans. Being a global certifying authority, IGI is dedicated to catering to the developing dynamics that make the gem and jewelry industry what it is,” said IGI CEO Roland Lorie.

IGI has focused on ensuring manufacturers who employ best practices in trade. To be attended by over 150 selected retailers from the Middle East as well as India, the show is surely going to take the idea of a premium networking event, a notch above the rest. The previous edition of the show, held in Goa, was a grand success and with each edition, IGI has been redefining the essence of the meet.
