Press Release: The 35th World Diamond Congress, the joint biennial meeting of the International Diamond Manufacturers Association (IDMA) and the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB), will be held in Mumbai, India, from October 14 to 17. The event is being organized and hosted by the Gems & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC) and the Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB).

This past week, the organizing committee launched a dedicated congress website that will be "a complete one-point access to all relevant information about the event." The website can be accessed at, and provides detailed information on the event's schedule and program, participating organizations, the hosts, information about registration, the venue hotel and room booking, social tours and post-congress optional programs.

IDMA's president Moti Ganz said India was the right place for this year's congress due to the major role it plays in the global diamond and jewelry industries. "India is one of the leading manufacturing powers in the diamond and diamond jewelry industry and trade. At the same time, as our industry is going through some very challenging times, both in the rough and polished diamond market, it is also among the first to be affected by those challenges. Mumbai is therefore the correct place to discuss the state of our industry and to reach a consensus on how to propel our industry forward and increase its market share in the luxury consumer product market," he said.

One of the highlights of the congress will be a mini-conference. The event "will focus on external and internal issues that confront the diamond industry, as a result of which it finds itself at a turning point today," the organizers said.

Ganz added that congress delegates had good reason to look forward to the event. "As this is the first time a World Diamond Congress will be held in India, I am sure our hosts will make it a most memorable event. It also gives delegates the opportunity to renew old acquaintances, and make new contacts with Indian diamond polishing and jewelry making companies."
