Founding Partner of Istanbul Jewelry Show, Şermin Cengiz: “Reaching a record high number of visitors at our 52nd exhibition is a great source of pride for all of us”

Şermin Cengiz said, “It is a great source of pride for us that Istanbul Jewelry Show that we have been organizing since 1986 has achieved the highest number of visitors among our October exhibitions held until today. We had hosted 36,500 buyers at our March 2022 exhibition and 26,504 buyers at our October 2022 exhibition, thus starting to host more than 63,000 jewelry industry professionals in a year. We had finished our March 2022 exhibition by growing into 6 halls, rather than 5. And, we organized our October 2022 exhibition at 4 halls, instead of 3, in parallel with such growth. We have achieved an excellent growth trend in 2022, in terms of the number of both exhibitors and visitors. We anticipate that Istanbul Jewelry Show will remain as a preferred organization for the world jewelry sector, for Türkiye in particular, and the number of our both exhibitors and visitors will also continue to increase in the upcoming years.
