BDW Participants to benefit!


A new direct flight between Israel and India will give a boost to the first-ever edition of the Bharat Diamond Week (BDW) at the Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB) in Mumbai, India. The BDB is expecting thousands of visitors from India and abroad to take part in the April 23-25 international diamond week. Some 150 Indian companies will be exhibiting polished diamonds to buyers from across the world at the show which the BDB plans to hold twice a year.


"Visiting India from Israel is now easier than ever because Air India, which is India's national airline, is starting direct flights on March 22 between Israel and New Delhi with convenient connections to Mumbai," said Bharat Diamond Bourse Vice-President Mehul Shah, who is heading the Diamond Week project.


“Air tickets to Mumbai will cost the same price, meaning that visiting India for the show is both easy and at a competitive price level. So, welcome to the Bharat Diamond Week. Needless to say, there are direct flights to Mumbai from all the major diamond countries, so visitors from Belgium, Dubai, Hong Kong, the US, China, and elsewhere can easily reach us, and we are going to be delighted to welcome them" He added.


BDB President Anoop Mehta said: "The main aim in holding this show is to help the small and medium-size companies. They are the ones who really need a boost during these challenging times. They are not able to go to the big shows, so the Bharat Diamond Week allows them to participate on a level playing field."


There will be a display of synthetic diamond detection equipment with competitively priced services at Bharat Diamond Week. The organisers are also planning to hold specially organised seminars and meetings on the issue of synthetics, Mr Shah said. "The synthetics part of the Diamond Week is going to bring a great deal of added value for attendees, with the latest updates on this important issue," Mr Shah said.


The official launch took place on March 17 of a cricket tournament that will be held from April 8-15, in the run-up up to the Bharat Diamond Week. It will feature 12 teams with players from the following companies and organisations taking part: Asian Star, Ankit Gems, Bharat Diamond Bourse, Mahendra Brothers, Blue Star, Palanlur Samaj Kendra, Jewelex, Venus Jewel, Shree Ramkrishna Exports, GIA, Rosy Blue and Jasani.
