DITP Shifts Format of 66th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair from February 2021 to Online Exhibition Called BGJF Virtual Trade Fair in May 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) BANGKOK, TH — The Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) will change the 66th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair scheduled for February 2021 from a physical fair to become the BGJF Virtual Trade Fair in May 2021 in order to ensure the continuity of the trade show and provide trading opportunities for the gems and jewelry industry during the New Normal.

For the past few months, the DITP has been closely monitoring the situation relating to the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Thailand and other countries. While Thailand has been able to limit the spread of the virus, especially during the new wave of the disease, the health and safety of industry stakeholders are always our priority. Therefore, DITP has decided to shift the 66th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair, originally scheduled for 23-27 February 2021, to become an online event called the BGJF Virtual Trade Fair to be organized in May 2021.

The main objective of BGJF Virtual Trade Fair is to offer trading opportunities to exporters of gems and jewelry products through online channels in order to overcome the challenges of doing business while the threat of the COVID-19 virus continues. This online edition of the fair will enable domestic and international exhibitors to meet and trade with buyers from around the world, offering a safe opportunity to conduct business while international travel is restricted.

In addition, the 67th Bangkok Gems & Jewelry Fair will be organized as a hybrid fair on 11-15 September 2021 at Challenger Halls, IMPACT Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
