'The increase in visitor numbers along with the reported higher quality of buyers has confirmed what we were saying in the run up to the show, that there is a still a strong move by investors at all levels to move towards hard assets' such as Gold and Diamonds,' said Saif Al Midfa, Director General of Expo Centre Sharjah.

Apart from India and the middle east, exhibitors also came from the US, China, Japan, Armenia, Italy, Lebanon, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey and Malaysia.
