With bigger venue, IIJS 2021 set out for premium buying experience



2021 marks the first year when GJEPC is doing a post-pandemic in-person event. Virtual forums took place in October 2020 and In January this year, but nothing matched the pressing need to see, feel and buy jewellery in-person. Addressing this need as soon as Covid-19 infection cases plummeted in Karnataka, GJEPC zeroed in on Bengaluru as the next best spot.

“Bengaluru is the nodal point of jewellery for all five South Indian states,” stated Shailesh Sangani, convener, national exhibitions, GJEPC. Speaking at the virtual announcement of IIJS 2021, Sangani took note of the superior quality of buyers from South India throughout the history of IIJS held in Mumbai, thus necessitating the shift to the city of Bengaluru itself for a safe in-person event.

Visitors get in safely from the reception center and register themselves at Hall 1A. The entry plaza has seven bays and six terminals for allowing social distancing norms. Sharing the floor plan, Sangani stated that a tunnel connects Hall 1 with a 7,500 square feet-wide food court, a space big enough for visitors to have their meals while maintaining social distance.Thereon, one accesses the couture jewellery section in hall 2. Then one gets into hall 3, totally dedicated to gold jewellery. Hall 3 consists of 50% of the total number of booths of IIJS 2021, signifying that gold will play a major role at the exhibition.

Thereafter, one goes to hall number 5, where 50% area is reserved for gold and the rest for diamond jewellery and loose diamonds and colour gemstones. Through hall 5, one gets access to hall no. 4 which has each of its halves reserved for gold and diamond jewellery respectively. Each hall also has independent gates. The tunnel system has been made to ease commute.

For an unparalleled exploration in gold and diamonds, halls 4 and 5 have the largest span of pillarless structure across 75 metres x 234 metres this time. Such amenities attest the efforts put in by the council to really uphold Bengaluru as the next best alternative for Mumbai-based IIJS.
