DUBAI DIAMOND CONFERENCE: 16-17 OCTOBER 2017
06 July 2017
The Dubai Diamond Exchange (DDE), a DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodities Centre) platform, has announced the third edition of its biennial two-day Dubai Diamond Conference 2017 under the theme ‘Destination Next - Shaping the future of an interconnected marketplace'.

The conference, set to take place on 16-17 October in Dubai, is expected to attract international leaders of the diamond industry, including governmental representatives from African countries, traders, financiers and jewelers.

DMCC Executive Chairman Ahmed Bin Sulayem says, "Dubai has evolved rapidly as one of the world's leading trading centres for rough diamonds and we look forward to welcoming all market participants to the Dubai Diamond Conference in October. A dynamic marketplace made for growth today and long into the future, Dubai continues to play a central role for the trade due to its ideal location between producing countries in Africa and cutting centres in South Asia and the Far East."

The conference aims to provide opportunities to build relationships between companies and governments in producing and consuming countries, further highlighting the role of Dubai in the global diamond trade for diamonds, and enabling discussions and debate with a focus on stimulating innovation and growth in the diamond industry.

Peter Meeus, Chairman of the Dubai Diamond Exchange, says: "Dubai is an established part of the diamond community and a much needed gateway to the Middle Eastern retail market. We will bring together over 500 stakeholders to discuss challenges and opportunities facing the trade today."

The announcement notes that personal invitations to attend the conference have been extended to Hon. Mosebenzi Joseph Zwane, Minister of Mineral Resources of the Republic of South Africa; Hon. Sadique Kebonang, Minister of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources of the Republic of Botswana; Hon. Prof. Dr. Francisco Queiroz, Minister of Geology and Mines of the Republic of Angola; Hon. Obeth Kandjoze, Minister of Mines and Energy of the Republic of Namibia and Hon. Walter K. Chidhakwa, Minister of Mines and Mining Development of the Republic of Zimbabwe.
