The visit follows DMCC’s successful Dubai Precious Metals Conference, which gathered more than 300 industry experts who discussed key trends and opportunities in the sector. In February 2022, two major industry events are set to take place in Dubai further solidifying the Emirate’s position as a leading hub for the jewellery and diamond trade – the Dubai Diamond Conference and the Jewellery, Gem & Technology Dubai.
