Mumbai: GJEPC has successfully enlisted the IIJS Signature 2024 Exhibition under the Procurement and Marketing Support scheme of the Ministry of MSME. The scheme provides financial assistance to micro and small enterprises for participating in domestic and international trade fairs and exhibitions. As a result, the eligible exhibitors can now avail themselves of a grant of Rs 1.50 lakh each, which will help them cover costs and enhance their visibility and competitiveness in the global market.

IIJS Signature, now in its 16th edition, breaks new ground by hosting its event across dual venues for the first time. The event will take place at the Jio World Convention Centre from January 4-7, 2024, and concurrently at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in Mumbai from January 5-8, 2024. This expansion aims to offer exhibitors and visitors more space, fostering a relaxed environment conducive to productive business interactions.

Simultaneously, the India Gem and Jewellery Machinery Expo (IGJME 2024) will be held at BEC, featuring over 100 companies and 150+ stalls. This edition promises an enhanced experience, presenting a wider array of compelling business opportunities.

Additionally, GJEPC is introducing a dedicated section for luxury connoisseurs and couture jewellery buyers called “The Select CLUB” at IIJS Signature 2024 in the Jio World Convention Centre. This exclusive section allows couture jewellery manufacturers to showcase their extensive collection of high-end, exclusive jewellery designs to a curated audience.


With 1,500+ exhibitors occupying 3,000+ stalls across a sprawling 1.25 lac sqm of exhibition area, IIJS Signature 2024 will be hosting more than 32,000 trade visitors, including representatives from 800+ cities in India and over 60 countries worldwide.

Vipul Shah, Chairman, GJEPC, said, “IIJS Signature is strategically positioned at the beginning of the year. Following a phenomenal festive season that witnessed double-digit sales growth for retailers, this platform allows buyers to stock up inventory for the wedding and festivities placed in the first half of the year.”

Expressing his enthusiasm, Vipul Shah stated, “The integration of the IIJS Signature 2024 Exhibition into the Ministry of MSME’s ‘Procurement and Marketing Support’ initiative marks a significant boost for our industry’s micro and small enterprises. This financial aid, offering Rs 1.50 lakh to eligible exhibitors, will play a pivotal role in facilitating their financial aspects and elevating their visibility and competitiveness on the global platform.”

Nirav Bhansali, Convener, National Exhibitions, GJEPC said, “We are thrilled to unveil ‘The Select CLUB’ for Couture Jewellery manufacturers at IIJS Signature 2024, hosted in the prestigious Jio World Convention Centre. ‘The Select CLUB’ is poised to empower couture jewellery manufacturers, providing a platform to showcase their diverse array of exclusive high-end jewellery designs to our discerning audience.”

“Moreover, building on the success of the One Earth initiative launched during IIJS Signature 2023, which has achieved the milestone of planting 1 lakh trees, we extend our gratitude to exhibitors, visitors, vendors, and contributors who generously supported this cause. This accomplishment fuels our dedication to fostering an environmentally friendly and sustainable event, driving us to continue this mission.”

This IIJS Signature edition brings not just a showcase of the latest trends and innovations but also a forum for knowledge exchange. Innov8 Talks, seminars designed to inspire and educate, and the networking evenings foster connections that go beyond business transactions.”
