The dates have been set for the 2017 Presidents Meeting, the biennial gathering of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) and the International Diamond Manufacturers Association (IDMA). It will take place in Mumbai from Sunday, February 5 to Wednesday, February 8, 2017.
The Presidents Meeting starts off the WFDB’s year of celebrations as we mark the 70th anniversary of our organisation with a variety of celebrations and events.
This Presidents Meeting will be completely different to any previous such event as the WFDB is organising a special Diamond Financing Seminar and Roundtable. This meeting will be the most in-depth and comprehensive on the topic ever held, with top banking and finance experts from across the world invited, as well as a wide range of industry stakeholders.
The seminar will challenge the issue of financing in an unmatched way, and that is why it is critical that all members of our trade attend. The importance of the seminar is seen in the fact that we have decided to start with WFDB committee meetings on Sunday, February 5, then the financing seminar running during the 5th and 6th,and then continue our meetings on February 7 and 8.
