ICA to Hold International Gem Show in Dubai

The International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA) will hold its first ever international gem show focused on the loose colored gemstone industry. The ICA International Gem Show Dubai 2008 will be held October 13-15.

The event is the first gem show held under the patronage of the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC). “Dubai is rapidly becoming recognized as the gateway for commodities to the Middle East. Favorable importation duties for exhibitors and buyers make this an optimal B2B experience for all attendees,” the ICA said in a release.

All suppliers at the show are ICA, DMCC or Dubai Gems Club members Show organizers note that, because the event is focused entirely on colored gems, it is a better environment for this sector of the industry to do business. “Our aim is to organize a show featuring the essence of the industry,” explained ICA President Andrew Cody.

The event will be held at Al Bustan Rotana and airport pick-up service will be provided for attendees. A cocktail reception, gala dinner and fashion show will also be on the line up. The last day of the show is open to the general public.
