Gold Silver Time 2016

—a look back

165 exhibitors, ca. 2700 trade and non-trade visitors—these statistics wrap up the 17th edition of GOLD SILVER TIME, 29 September–1 October 2016, at the MT Polska Centre, Warsaw. The exhibitors were mainly makers of contemporary Polish jewellery (60) and amber companies (52, a record-breaking number), but there were also companies presenting silver and gold jewellery, fashion jewellery, jeweller tools and machines, along with display systems.

As always, GOLD SILVER TIME was accompanied by an extensive framework programme. The most important item on the agenda was the Jewellery Exhibition Forum—a place with as many as 16 exhibitions of contemporary Polish jewellery art, including PRESENTATIONS organised in partnership with the STFZ Goldsmithing Artists’ Association and the CITY International Jewellery Art Competition, unique on a global scale.

In spite of the efforts of the organiser, this year’s edition of GST was affected by factors including the fragmentation of the industry, the emergence of a competitive event on the same dates in Warsaw, along with a decreasing demand for Baltic amber products and low interest in original jewellery. Such a demanding market brought success to all those who prepared a new portfolio which appealed to customer preferences.
