GIT to host the “International Chanthaburi Gems and Jewellery Festival 2020”

The Gem and Jewelry Institute of Thailand (Public Organisation) or GIT together with Chanthaburi Provincial Administrative Organisation, Chanthaburi Gem and Jewelry Traders Association and Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB) have announced their readiness to organise the second “International Chanthaburi Gems and Jewellery Festival 2020”, following an unexpectedly positive response. It will be held on 18-22 December 2020 at The Chanthaburi Gem and Jewellery Center, KP Jewellery Centre and OTOP Lifestyles shop at the Gems Market, Srichan Road.

Mr. Sumed Prasongpongchai, Deputy Director of GIT, said that the institute has teamed up with its partners in Chanthaburi to host the International Chanthaburi Gems and Jewellery Festival 2020 under the theme “Go Together: Chanthaburi City of Gems” to create business opportunities and increase distribution channels for entrepreneurs to sell their products to local customers due to the disruption of exports caused by COVID-19. The fair is believed to boost the local economy and increase consumer confidence in purchasing gems and jewellery products, following the Thai government policy to promote Chanthaburi as the city of gems, and Thailand as a jewellery manufacturing and global trading hub.

The event will bring together more than 300 Thai and international entrepreneurs, who will showcase raw gemstones, polished gemstones, jewellry making materials, machines and tools, as well as packaging. There will be business matching sessions and seminars to promote trade and investment. 

In response to the ‘Buy with Confidence’ programme, GIT will provide a mobile gems and jewellery laboratory service to foster confidence among consumers.

“What's special about this event is its timing. It will take place at a time when people are travelling and purchasing gifts for Christmas and the New Year. It will also be an opportunity for buyers to purchase products at cheaper prices. It is expected to boost the economy in the province, including tourism and the gems and jewellery industry,” Prasongpongchai said.
