A group of 9 local small and medium enterprise (SMEs) from Singapore are set to exhibit at Jewellery Arabia 2018 from 21 – 25 November at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre. Returning to Bahrain for the 5th year running, the national pavilion is coordinated by the Singapore Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME).

“SMEs return year after year because they witness for themselves that Jewellery Arabia is an excellent platform for them to network and explore the Gulf market. From the feedback we received from last year’s edition of the show, Singapore exhibitors were able to meet over 350 business contacts and buyers,” said VS Kumar, Vice-President, International Relations of ASME.

“I visited Jewellery Arabia for the first time last year and I was very impressed with the wide range of traders and clients involved in serious trade discussions. This is what drew me to participate in the show. We plan to showcase exquisite fancy diamond jewellery and use this platform to penetrate into the thriving Middle East market,” said Sumit Chawla, Director of Rish Gems, a first-time exhibitor of the show.

Echoing the same sentiment, Nicholas Tan, Assistant Manager of Teng Huat Jewellery said, “Jewellery Arabia was a great platform for our company to achieve valuable business leads that successfully translated into sales revenue over the past year. Teng Huat Jewellery is glad to participate in related trade exhibitions led byASME.”

“It is one of the jewellery shows that brings buyers with high purchasing power. The buyers are looking for trendy statement pieces and we have a number of referrals by our returning customers. The show is a great platform to grow and strengthen our customer base,” said Eileen Lim, Senior Business Development Executive of Taka Jewellery.

“Jewellery Arabia is the best platform for Singapore’s jewellery manufacturers to enter the Middle East market. We have seen a steady growth of the number of exhibitors taking part in the show – from 500 exhibitors when ASME first led the Singapore pavilion, to more than 600 exhibitors participating in 2016. We hope to expand the Singapore pavilion further by bringing more Singapore SMEs to enter the Middle East jewellery market. We are confident that Jewellery Arabia will continue to grow and attract more quality visitors each year,” said Shen Huizhen, International Relations Manager, ASME.
