Also, there were 300+ buyers and 800+ one-on-one meetings that were successfully arranged. I am thankful to all the participants and visitors for making it a grand success.
Planning the show was a major challenge due to the Election Code of Conduct and Covid protocols. But, we are glad to have taken care of all the necessary elements. PMI is strongly continuing its journey to be the best networking platform in the Industry. The most prestigious jewellery fraternity personalities of India were present and witness the event. PMI is the industry’s most premium jewellery buying experience.”
