Commenting on the announcement of the HJF, Mr. Yogesh Mudras, Managing Director, UBM India said, “The Indian Gems & Jewellery Industry is the back bone of the economy. With a market size estimate of Rs 3 lakh crore per annum, the sector is the second highest employer after the IT industry, employing roughly 2.5 million people. According to industry reports, it is also witnessing changes in consumer preferences worldwide. Consumers in India are youngsters who look for bespoke designs, seasonally trending styles, and indulge in omni-channel shopping experiences – buying digitally as well as from brick and mortar stores. The organised jewellers are able to fulfil their expectations better than unorganised players, especially with the implementation of progressive steps like the GST.”
He further added, “Hyderabad represents the large and growing South Indian manufacturing and retail markets and with HJF we are proud to play an important role in the region, generating sales and building better business relationships. This year, we have also reached an important milestone and achieved a new momentum with the 10th anniversary of our fair. We are glad to showcase over 150 companies providing the industry players to further their business.”
