In support of sustainability and to raise awareness within the jewelry industry, a seminar titled “Why Sustainability is Vital in Jewelry?” was conducted on the third day of the exhibition. The session featured Melanie Grant, the Executive Director of the Responsible Jewelry Council, and Esther Ligthart, a jewelry blogger and journalist.

The exhibition also recognized excellence with the Leaders of Export Award Ceremony, where companies with the highest export volumes in 2022 received their awards. Additionally, the winners of the 13th Jewelry Design Contest, organized by the Jewellery Exporters’ Association, were honored during the exhibition.

The Designer Club, a joint initiative by the Turkish Jewellery Exporters’ Association and the Istanbul Jewelry Show, provided a platform for jewelry designers and masters to showcase their designs and creations.

Founding Partner of Istanbul Jewelry Show, Şermin Cengiz, expressed pride in the exhibition’s contribution to the global jewelry industry and the national economy, emphasizing that it had grown in both quality and quantity. She also announced that next year’s exhibition, scheduled for April 17 to 20, 2024, would begin on Wednesday and end on Saturday, marking a significant change in the event’s schedule.

In line with the increasing importance of sustainability within the industry, the Istanbul Jewelry Show took several environmentally friendly actions to reduce carbon emissions during the event, such as minimizing printed materials, recycling name tags and exhibition carpets, using energy-efficient LED technology, and conducting visitor surveys via tablet computers to reduce paper usage. Furthermore, exhibitors and visitors were encouraged to use public transportation to minimize CO2 emissions in transport to the exhibition area.
