The Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) is adding new event profile to Thailand by hosting “Jewellery & Gem ASEAN Bangkok 2023” (JGAB) for the first time in the country on April 26-29, 2023.

Informa Markets Thailand, one of the world's leading trade exhibition organizers, says it sees great potential for the Thai jewellery industry and is ready to push Thailand as a gem and jewellery trading center on the global stage.

“Jewellery & Gem ASEAN Bangkok 2023” (JGAB) is part of Jewellery & Gem WORLD, the world's most prestigious jewellery fair which is held annually in Hong Kong. This is the first time that JGAB is held in Thailand.

The trade fair gathers more than 400 brands of gems and jewellery with more than 10,000 rare gems and jewellery collections from exhibitors from 15 countries around the world. In addition to being an important international gathering of buyers, sellers, and jewellery designers, the JGAB is also a place where entrepreneurs in the industry gather to exchange their views.

Highlights at the event include a gems and jewellery exhibition area to show off tools and equipment from 11 countries, the 'JGAB Runway', and the 'Young Designer Awards' design contest. In addition, the event will feature dress and jewelry trend updates from around the globe.

“In 2022, the jewellery industry in Thailand grew steadily. The value of jewellery exports reached 500 billion baht, an increase of 49.82% year-on-year as a result from the country’s opening after the pandemic, the economic recovery, and the depreciation of the baht, which allowed foreigners to shop in the country more conveniently,” said Anuchana Vichvech, Event Director of Informa Markets Thailand, revealed that "Jewellery & Gem ASEAN Bangkok 2023" (JGAB)

 “As Thailand is at the gem and jewellery center of Southeast Asia, 'Informa Markets' has seen an opportunity and potential in the development and growth of the Thai gem industry. Therefore, we have organized the JGAB as part of the Jewellery & Gem WORLD to be a trading platform for buyers and sellers globally to meet with Thai entrepreneurs and designers. We hope that this event will push Thailand to become a gem and jewellery trading center on a global scale,” Anuchana explained.

“The location of the event is one of the key elements that will impress visitors as the ‘QSNCC’ is the first place we see that can meet all the needs we have both in terms of spaces and convenience of location in Bangkok’s central area where travel is highly convenient. This is in addition to its great facilities and Thai-style decorations, which are genuinely unique and contemporary. A perfect place for a premium jewellery fair requires a venue that is beautiful and modern just like what we see at the QSNCC,” she added.

Sakchai Pattaraprechakul, CEO of N.C.C. Management and Development Co., Ltd, the operator of QSNCC, said that “QSNCC is honored to be a platform for Thai entrepreneurs to showcase their potential on an international stage which will lead to the development of the gem industry and the Thai economy.”

Sakchai added: “It is also a great opportunity for us to be a part of adding a new event profile to Thailand, which in addition to demonstrating the potential of Thailand's gem and jewellery industry is also evidence of our success in being able to organize such a world-class event like the JGAB. It reflects how MICE businesses in Thailand can grow at the same level as international markets.”
