Jewellery & Watch will make a confident return to the NEC, Birmingham on February 3rd, welcoming new brands and retuning exhibitors for five days of buying, networking and seminar content.
Businesses hailing from 15 countries will present their collections and services across six show sectors: Bridal & Fine Jewellery, Silver & Semi Precious Jewellery, Jewellery Designers, Costume & Fashion, Watches and Retail Services & Solutions.
For exhibitors joining Jewellery & Watch for the first time in 2019, the show offers convenient access to the UK market at a strategic time of year.
For emerging designer-brand, Caitlin Victoria Jewellery, Jewellery & Watch offers business benefits as well as networking opportunities for its owner and director, Caitlin Gregory-Thomas. “I'm looking forward to meeting other designers and makers in the market, as well as buyers and potential customers,” she says. “I chose to exhibit at Jewellery & Watch as it's such a well-known event. People come from all over to see new work and find what they're looking for. There isn't really a better place to go in the hope of gaining custom.”
Many returning Jewellery & Watch exhibitors will be celebrating special anniversaries and milestones at this year's show. Silver designer jewellery brand, Lucy Quartermaine, will launch its new 'brand vision' with a champagne reception, while Unique & Co. will celebrate 20-consecutive years of exhibiting.
Also nearing its 20-year anniversary of exhibiting at Jewellery & Watch is London-based fine jewellery manufacturer and wholesaler, LM Jewellery. Director Linda Lousky, explains: “Our customer base is spread over the entire UK and Ireland so being able to see our range in such a central location as Birmingham guarantees us a successful exhibition year after year.”
The variety of buyers visiting Jewellery & Watch and neighbouring show, Spring Fair ensure a successful show for exhibitors with more innovative and creative design concepts. “This will be our third year exhibiting at Jewellery & Watch and it is definitely our favourite and most successful trade show,” explains Julie Fountain, owner and designer of Beach Art Glass.
In 2018, Jewellery & Watch secured 14,000 visitors, while its sister show, Spring Fair, welcomed more than 56,000 professionals across 14 diverse show sectors.
