RAPAPORT… The World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) launched its website for the 2008 CIBJO Congress in Dubai, providing information and registration details about the annual event.

The conference is being held for the first time in the Middle East and will be hosted by the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) from April 14 to 16, 2008.

Dubai was chosen as the venue of the 14th annual congress “in recognition of the emirate’s increasingly central role on the global jewelry stage,” CIBJO and DMCC said in an earlier joint statement. In 2006 the event was held in Africa for the first time, in Cape Town, South Africa.

The organizations said they expect leaders of the jewelry trade, government and United Nations representatives to attend the meeting, to address the global outlook for a broad range of industry issues.

While an outline of the program has been posted on the website (,) no speakers have yet been published.
