“We are delighted to welcome Rapaport as an official partner of the Dubai Diamond Conference. With the diamond industry going through an unprecedented period of change – driven by new technologies, changing consumer preferences and an evolving global trade landscape – data and analysis from international organizations such as Rapaport is more important than ever.”

The DMCC CEO further added that, “DMCC is committed to working with key stakeholders across the diamond industry to support the development of a fair and competitive global market, and I am very much looking forward to connecting with partners and industry experts from around the globe at the Dubai Diamond Conference.”

Meanwhile, Chairman of the Rapaport Group, Mr. Martin Rapaport remarked that “Rapaport Information Services is pleased to support high-level communications among diamond industry leaders. We believe that the Dubai Diamond Conference will provide an opportunity for the trade to address important social responsibility issues that can help make the world a better place. The role of Dubai as an international meeting place is of growing importance as we face increasing global economic and political uncertainty. It is good that our industry is coming together in Dubai.”

In line with its mandate to attract, facilitate and steer new trade flows through Dubai, DMCC has been a driving force in establishing the emirate as a leading global hub for diamond trade. Throughout 2021, the Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE), the world’s largest diamond tender facility, hosted more than 65 tenders of diamonds and precious stones.

Meanwhile, the new Jewellery, Gem and Technology Dubai (JGT Dubai) show, supported by DMCC as the official partner, one of the jewelry world’s most powerful marketplaces for product discovery, meaningful connections and inspired thinking, will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre in the last week of February 2022 to trade and explore new business opportunities in Dubai.
