The 42nd Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair

The 42nd Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Fair (BGJF) will put homegrown and international jewelry design talent in the spotlight with the introduction of a new gallery, the Design Pavilion. Fostering creativity, the new pavilion will provide more value to both visitors and exhibitors at BGJF while also recognizing winning designs and providing inspiration to other designers and professionals to develop their capabilities, said BGJF Chief Executive Somchai Phornchindarak in a release issued on Monday. BGJF is scheduled from Sept. 11-15 at the world-class exhibition centre Challenger in Bangkok, Thailand.

To accentuate its importance, the Design Pavilion will be located in a 500-square-meter area in BGJF's main foyer in front of the registration desk and will include two sections. One will feature the designs of the 15 winners of the International Thai Jewelry Awards. The other will be devoted to an international presentation entitled "Gem Visions 2009 by Enlightened—Swarovski Elements." The latter will feature designs made of Swarovski's precision-cut genuine gemstones and created stones.

The new pavilion comes on top of other special show sections devoted to design, including TGJ Elite Creations and Hot New Design, featuring more than 100 entries, as well as a special exhibition by the Thai Silver Exporter Club.

The show's business-to-business matchmaking facility, which allows buyers and exhibitors to schedule face-to-face meetings before the show, will also be enhanced this year.
