Press Release: The Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE), a Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) platform, will host the second Dubai Diamond Conference from April 21 to 22, 2015. The conference will be held at Almas Tower, the Middle East’s tallest commercial tower that is home to over 1,000 diamond, precious metal, precious stone and jewelry companies.

The two-day conference will bring together international leaders of the diamond industry, ranging from African ministers to traders, financiers and world-renowned jewelers.

Ahmed Bin Sulayem, the executive chairman of the DMCC, said, "2015 will be an interesting year for the global diamond trade and at DMCC, we are honored to host and bring together our valued trading partners from across the globe. The global diamond industry has been going through a historic transformation over the last couple of years with the center of gravity shifting from West to East.”

The conference will provide an opportunity to build relationships between companies and governments in producing and consuming countries, further highlighting the pivotal role that Dubai plays in the global diamond trade for diamonds. The DDE program will enable discussions and debate with a focus on stimulating innovation and growth in the African, Middle Eastern and Asian diamond industry.

Dubai’s strong leadership and vision has enabled the Emirate to quickly transform itself into a key link in the global transport and distribution system. Since its inception in 2002, DMCC has successfully established Dubai as the global gateway for commodities trade by building and enhancing its physical and financial infrastructure, regulatory standards, products and services, including the launch of the DDE and the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX). This has positioned Dubai as one of the world’s leading diamond centers.
