Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair - Sept'13

The 52nd Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair is happening from September 6-10, 2013 at IMPACT Muang Thong Thani. Around 1500 exhibitors, local as well as foreign, are expected to feature the finest in jewellery - be it gold, silver or precious gems. For more information, check out:

To promote the event, the Thai government has announced a deduction of 20% tax on imported gems and jewelry sold at the fair, which is expected to be passed on to buyers as discounts.  As a result of the tax deduction, international exhibitors can sell gems and jewellery from other countries duty-free, while local jewellers can reduce their prices after cutting down on their costs of imported parts and products.

The exhibition is a bi-annual event, taking place around February and September every year, and attracts hordes of traders and buyers from all over the world.
