International Jewellery London (IJL) has announced that Germany will be its Market Focus for 2016. This international business initiative, successfully launched at last year’s show with a focus on Italy and a group of innovative Italian companies, aims to facilitate links and boost trade between UK jewellery industry members and their international counterparts.

Fifteen German companies are already lined up to showcase their new collections and flagship pieces at IJL 2016, with the German Market Focus set to offer an insightful view of the very best of German design and creativity.

Of particular note are Hans D. Krieger, a family firm with decades of expertise and renowned for faultless classic design with a twist; Richard Hans Becker producing distinguished and classic jewellery, epitomising elegance; Manu Werkstatt Fur Schmuck creating exquisite hand-crafted designs, and Fine Gems Collection, the leading manufacturer of gold and silver jewellery, using the finest diamonds and natural coloured gemstones.

Sam Willoughby, IJL show director, explained the importance of this venture: “Germany’s skilled design is recognised around the world – especially  in the silver jewellery sector – and we hope that this year’s Market Focus will help aid the exchange of essential market knowledge and forge business links, as well as encourage the sharing of trend and design inspiration. IJL supports business networking and this will see different countries united by a common appreciation of the best in jewellery practice and production.”

The German Market Focus is supported by a comprehensive, proactive online and direct  marketing campaign in the lead up to the show, during and post the event. All participating German exhibitors will also be featured in an exclusive catwalk scene on the Sunday late night shopping event and thereafter within the catwalk shows for the duration of IJL 2016.
