Istanbul Jewelry Show is sponsored by the Turkish Association of Jewellers and organized by Rotaforte Int’l Trade Fairs and Media.

Turkey is the third largest manufacturer of gold jewelry in the world and Turkish jewelry manufacturers are increasingly becoming a fine jewelry manufacturer rather than just a mass producer.

The Istanbul Jewelry Show is putting more emphasis on design work, bringing jewelry designers from all around the world, building and promoting worldwide awareness of fine design jewelry.

Turkey exports gold jewelry to 140 countries. The U.S. is its largest consumer, followed by the UAE, Italy, Russia, Germany and Israel.

The March 2007 edition of the show featured 1,056 local and international exhibitors from 29 countries. Istanbul Jewelry Show-II, 2007 is expected to attract more than 15,000 trade visitors and 650 local and international exhibitors.
