“In 2012 it was our first exhibition; in fact it was YMCA’s first exhibition, which was organized by GREEN.” Says Mr Pranav Zaveri from Namaste India Events – A leading Exhibition & Weddings planner.
They started the exhibitions in Surat during 2008 and gradually developed a strong set of visitors in all cities. Right now they are doing wedding exhibitions in Surat, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Jamnagar, Rajkot & Gandhidham.
For 2017, too, like the past 5 years was undoubtedly successful. Leading jewelers participated in the show and approx 5000 jewellery enthusiasts visited us.
Talking about their journey Pratik says “We had started with the lifestyle exhibitions, which included Jewellery as a section. But we’ve received overwhelmed response from the jewelers and the buyers during all these years, so finally we’ve ended up doing only exclusive jewellery exhibitions.” No doubt it is their forte and the reason behind these successful jewellery shows since years. Of course when you are getting 5000-6000 visitors for each show and event the visitors get to see jewelry from approx 25 designer jewellers under one roof, it’s a huge thing for both – the exhibitor & the visitor.
When asked for the reason for all these well known jewelers associating with IJS, Pranav Zaveri says “We provide them a show which exclusive for jewelers and the ambiance according to their liking. We do let them design and execute their own stall. We just give them space, and then they create something which looks like a showroom and can give their own brand’s look & feel. Plus the visitors also feel good and even give good response. So they get their expected results and keep on repeating their participation in the show. And it is because of the venue – Green YMCA Banquet. We have complete freedom to d the set up & design the ambiance the way we like.”
Talking about the jewelers and trends they say “We’ve seen huge difference within last 5 years (2012-2017). Previously, the jewelers used to sell jewelry and now they are selling designs. Because the kind of jewelers we are associated with today are one of the most creative jewelers when it comes to the designs. They’ve to be on their toes to meet the latest demand and get something new every time. We’ve set our benchmark for IJS. Some of the jewelers in Surat & Ahmedabad, specially create the designs for our show. They’ve been launching the new designs & concepts or a new category in our shows.”
For their experience with YMCA, they say “We’ve been doing events with GREEN since 5 years and it’s like a family now. The team is very supportive & comfortable with us. The ambiance of the banquet itself and the business friendly atmosphere works for us. They manage the event as if it’s their own and it makes half of the work done for us.”
