The JQBID positions the Jewellery Quarter as Birmingham’s hub for creativity at the annual Makers Central exhibition at the NEC.
Exhibiting at the national exhibition, Makers Central, at the NEC enables the JQBID to position the Jewellery Quarter as a leading hub for creativity and manufacturing. In 2018 and 2019, the exhibition connected the JQBID with creatives from across the UK and introduced attendees to the incredible breadth of talent operating in the Jewellery Quarter. The show welcomes on average over 9,000 visitors making it the largest Maker Show in the UK.
At the exhibition, we also distribute dedicated literature for visitors to take home, including a mix of visitor and business information. In 2019, the JQBID teamed up with local business, Cooksongold to deliver free jewellery making workshops at the JQBID’s stand. The activity proved to be extremely popular with the team engaging with just over 1,000 people.
