The Middle East’s premier jewellery and watch exhibition, Jewellery Arabia 2017, was officially inaugurated by His Royal Highness the Prime Minister of Bahrain Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa on 21 November at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

The 26th exhibition in this prestigious annual series runs until Saturday 25 November 2017.

Assembling the largest array of jewellery, watches, gems and luxury accessories the region has ever seen, Jewellery Arabia 2017 showcases tens of thousands of exquisite pieces to discerning private buyers, as well as wholesalers, manufacturers, traders and retailers.

The exhibition is open free of charge to members of the public. Show organisers UBM AEM anticipate over 49,000 visitors will descend on the 21,000 square metre treasure trove over the course of 5 days.

Visitors will be welcomed by over 600 local, regional and international exhibitors who will be launching brand new product lines, displaying their latest collections and introducing limited edition pieces exclusively at the show.

“Jewellery Arabia 2017 is a vibrant platform for exhibitors to showcase their latest products in the dynamic Middle East market. This well-established exhibition offers consumers and trade visitors alike a once a year opportunity to browse the largest selection of jewellery and watches in the Middle East, stay abreast of trends, discover new designers and source one off pieces in a unique atmosphere. With pieces to suit all budgets, there is something for everyone at the show,” said Fawzi Al Shehabi, UBM AEM Director of Sales and Marketing.
World famous watch and jewellery houses will be making a return appearance at Jewellery Arabia 2017, including major brand names. Many of these high profile international exhibitors will use the event as a platform to introduce exclusive collections and limited edition pieces to the Middle East collectors’ market.

Complementing these iconic brands are national groups from leading jewellery export countries. They include large returning delegations of the finest retailers, designers and manufacturers from Hong Kong, India, Singapore and Thailand. Collectively, these groups reflect the very best manufacturing capabilities, design expertise and gemological resources that their respective countries have to offer.

Joining international brands and national groups are a host of designers, retailers and manufacturers from 30 countries worldwide, including a selection of Bahrain’s leading jewellers.
