January 2018: In the New Year, the All India Gems & Jewellery Trade Federation (GJF) presents the bigger and better avatar of its eagerly awaited business networking event – The Preferred Manufacturer of India (PMI) in Pune from 8th to 10th January 2018 at the J W Marriott Hotel. GJF’s popular B2B marketing platform is one of the most exclusive jewellery trade shows in India and has become talk of the gems & jewellery sector. Since its inception in 2011, the PMI programme has gained huge support and positive feedback from the industry participants due to the multiple opportunities it presents for trade constituents across India.
Mr. Nitin Khandelwal, Chairman, GJF, said, “PMI is a stellar buyer seller meet and a must-have in the annual marketing calendar for all jewellers. What was once a mere concept has now become a 360-degree experience that every jeweller desires to have! PMI programmes are held in select cities and towns that have been specially chosen with the objective of filling in the gaps between the manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers demand and supply needs. PMI is conducted in a systematic manner to maintain a perfect blend of business & leisure experience. GJF is constantly striving to provide a 360 degree experiential platform for the industry and PMI in the smart city of Pune will be a unique smart experience.”
Mr. Sumeet Anand, GJF Director & Convener PMI, said, “The year 2018 begins with one of the most exclusive business events – The Preferred Manufacturer of India (PMI) – to be held in Pune. This edition of PMI is uniquely very different from its predecessors. Every PMI has been a learning experience for us to set newer and better benchmarks in Buyer Seller meets. Pune is a very important market for us and GJF events in this smart city have always evoked immense success. This time, all the prominent participants have been handpicked by the PMI team and they are the leaders in their respective product lines. Their participation will make the event a grand success from Day One.”
Mr. Nitin Kadam, GJF Director & Co-Convener PMI, said, “The 4th edition of PMI aspires to be bigger, better and business efficient in all aspects right from the venue to the quality of participation to the activities and beyond! The unique platform of PMI allows participants to remain updated and relevant within an ever changing market scenario; and develop their clientele and business, while promoting innovation in manufacturing. It helps retailers maintain a competitive edge in terms of the product pricing and portfolio, as well as service support thereby maintaining a distinctive position for their brands and stores.”
Providing 360 degree solutions to participants by fulfilling several business objectives, GJF’s PMI platform enables businesses to focus on increasing profitability by offering them a competitive advantage, save time as well as reduce marketing and promotional costs. Perhaps, PMI is one of the very few events, which influences the business of Gold, Diamond and Jadau segments in a very compelling manner
Apart from the extravagant business experience, PMI also offers exquisite leisure to its participants. The venue and daily activities during PMI are strategically well thought of by the organisers. The first and second evening of the 3 day event are usually scheduled for evening gatherings over entertainment and dinner for the participants to socialize and have a gala time after the long day of business. It’s the right blend of mixing business with pleasure!
