This year’s pandemic has affected many trade exhibition events around the world. Major global trade shows have been either postponed or cancelled altogether. Two weeks before the scheduled date of Amberif this March, after long consultations with representatives of the exhibitors, an in-depth analysis of business trends and declarations of participation from international exhibitors and buyers, the Management Board of the MTG SA Gdańsk International Fair Co. decided to postpone Amberif dates to 26-29 August 2020. Many factors contributed to this decision, not only the difficulty in travelling between Europe and Asia—a key customer for amber products, but also the fact that many key buyers and exhibitors had growing doubts, alongside safety concerns. The restart of the economy, the relaunch of air travel, greater traveller confidence and a market recovery have given us all an opportunity to meet at Amberif in August!
Amberif is Poland’s largest jewellery trade show and the world’s largest and most important amber-related event. It is here that you can find such an ample selection of amber jewellery in terms of design, variety and quality. In 2020, we want to emphasise our position of a global leader in a special way by introducing a new layout in the hall dedicated to manufacturers of amber jewellery: from unique items, limited collections, to outdoor jewellery inspired by current trends in jewellery fashion.
The exhibitor-dedicated AMBERIF SELECTION Most Design Innovative Product Award is another one of the changes. The Award has been part of Amberif since 1995 but this time will have a new format: it will not only honour the best entries but also involve a strong and consistent promotion of the winners through advertising campaigns for both Amberif and the industry in Poland and worldwide.
More than half of Amberif’s exhibitors are manufacturers of original silver and gold jewellery, gemstone jewellery and fashion accessories. There are also leading importers and representatives of manufacturers from Italy, Turkey and the Far East. The Design Gallery, with its unique design zone and art jewellery from nearly 70 Polish and European jewellery artists, is Amberif’s pièce de résistance. Amberif is also the largest showcase of equipment, tools, findings, raw materials and materials for jewellery production from leading European manufacturers.
This specialised trade show is an annual opportunity for influential meetings of experts from many areas of business, science and art, a venue for conferences, symposia and cultural side events. Amberif has always had an extensive programme of exhibitions, seminars, lectures, meetings and training sessions which, during this year’s edition of the show, will be adapted to the elevated standards of hygiene and safety.
Amberif is a trade-only event, dedicated to individuals and companies associated with the jewellery and amber industry, trade in and production of jewellery and goldsmith products, marketing and services related to the jewellery industry and functional art.
Join us for AMBERIF, the 27th International Fair of Amber and Jewellery in Gdańsk, Poland, 26-29 August 2020. It’s good to be here!
