Where is it?
The Impact Arena Complex will once again host the auspicious gem and jewelry show in Bangkok and likely the next several Bangkok Gem Show 2018, Bangkok Gem Show 2019, and Bangkok Gem Show 2020. Located in a suburb away from the congestion in downtown Bangkok, Impact is only 30 minutes from downtown(Silom). The Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Show is only 45 minutes from Suvarnabhumi International Airport via the expressways and 15 minutes from Don Muang International Airport. IMPACT is served by an array of transportation services such as on-call taxis, minibusses, public buses, and Taxi Van Services.

Where to eat?
For eating healthy, there are many choices all around the complex grounds of the Bangkok Gem Show, from Fine Dining to regional cuisines of Thai or other countries’ foods and the Fast Food Restaurants such as McDonalds, Burger King, KFC and many more are right next to the Hall. Thai food is said to be quite healthy compared to many other foods and is delicious. Even with the amazing taste it is also very affordable. A word of caution if you don’t eat spicy food, order your food and also say “mai pet please” which in Thai means not spicy.

Where to stay?
Within 20 km radius of IMPACT, there are 12 hotels with over 3,000 rooms, and including right next to the complex which is perhaps the best place to stay near Challenger Hall 3 for the event is at IMPACT Hotel, which is Impact’s very own 4.5 Star hotel, or Novotel Bangkok IMPACT with 380 rooms or the ibis Bangkok IMPACT with 587 rooms. These are ideally located only 2 minutes from IMPACT Exhibition & Convention Center. Other Hotels provide shuttle service to the Complex.

Other Options On Where To Stay
Bangkok Gem Show is also near the Don Muang International Airport and there are many Hotels there as well. Another option is the Silom area which is the Central Business District and also home to the Gemstone Hub of Bangkok, where if you want to, you can also visit local Gemstone and Jewelry shops and especially the Jewelry Trade Center Tower where we are located. Hotels like the Holiday Inn Silom right next door to the JTC Tower and others on Silom Road like the Novotel and Pullman Hotels.

The Bangkok Gem Show is located in Impact Challenger Hall 3 and is divided into separate areas or Pavilions. Chantaburi Pavilion is a very important Pavilion as all of the Thai Gemstone Suppliers, which are mostly local Thai people, are selling Rubies and Sapphires there. This is an important area because it is where to go first and find the best quality of these Precious Gemstones but not necessarily the cheapest because the Thai sellers tend to set their own price.
Also, there is the Gemstone Pavilion, the Diamond Pavilion, and the Silver Jewelry / Gold Jewelry Pavilion area and other areas of interest. Navneet Gems could be included in all of these categories as we manufacture and supply all of them but we are under the Gemstone Pavilion, so for anyone looking for Wholesale Precious and Semi-Precious Gemstones, this where you will find us.
If you are a small retailer or wholesaler, you should find gemstone or jewelry sellers of your own scale. If you are a big wholesaler or chain store, then you should not necessarily go to small companies situated in the corners of the Bangkok Gem Show. You should instead be finding your own level of suppliers in volume and price for the best pricing and consistency in supply. Larger suppliers are accustomed to shipping larger quantities regularly and smaller businesses may want to but are not designed to do so effectively and efficiently. Smaller suppliers are however good to supply you with one-time purchases or smaller regular shipments.

Want more good advice? Watch for some good deals!
Keep an eye out for good deals on gemstones like Tsavorite, Ruby, Sapphire, Topaz, and Tourmaline during the event. For the lowest pricing, the participating gemstone suppliers and jewelers usually sell for the lower prices on the last day (5%-10% lower is possible). Some gems are likely to go on sale then, however, not the top quality gemstones, so be sure of the quality you are buying.
Where To Find The Best Wholesale Gemstone Suppliers?
If you would like the lowest wholesale pricing on your Precious and Semi-Precious Gemstones, all the time, please contact us at the Bangkok Gem Show or through the Contact Us Link above.
