Scheduled for 2 – 5 November 2022, the fair is poised to bring jewellery buyers and suppliers together in the most important ruby and sapphire trading centre in the world and one of the sector’s leading coloured gemstone and jewellery manufacturing hubs.

What’s more, Bangkok’s firm position as the aviation hub of ASEAN also makes it a natural choice for Informa Markets Jewellery’s newest show. The regional bloc’s high-growth markets, which have a combined population of more than 620 million consumers, are all within four hours of flying time from Bangkok.
ASEAN: An Exciting Future
The ASEAN regional bloc consists of the vibrant economies of Brunei Darussalam, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, and the promising markets of Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.
According to a Bain & Company report, the ASEAN region is expected to become the world’s fourth-largest economy over the next decade. Within the same period, domestic consumption is estimated to double to US$4 trillion.
On behalf of Informa Markets Jewellery, we would like to thank all of our industry partners who have been exceptionally supportive of Jewellery & Gem ASEAN Bangkok (JGAB), one of the most significant and highly anticipated international B2B sourcing events in the trade show calendar. The launch of this new important marketplace in the incredible, colourful and welcoming city of Bangkok has been met with genuine excitement by industry stakeholders who have been very vocal about the need for us to get back together in person.
Following multiple consultations with exhibitors and event partners, we believe that we could best provide the sourcing experience that our community deserves and expects from us by rescheduling JGAB’s inaugural edition from 2 – 5 November 2022 to 26 – 29 April 2023. Serving as a spectacular backdrop to JGAB is the completely rebuilt Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC), a world-class venue located right in the heart of Bangkok. We are delighted to report that the decision to shift JGAB’s show dates has been enthusiastically received by partners who have been pitching for a face-to-face show in the first half of 2023 in Bangkok – a city that is truly open to everyone.
As you well know, visitors may enjoy quarantine-free travel in Thailand, which makes JGAB even more accessible to international participants. From 1 July 2022, the only requirements for entry are:
