Gems and Jewellery Export Promotion Council – India International Jewellery Week
India International Jewellery Week (IIJW) is an initiative to showcase India’s finest jewellery, be it in terms of design or innovation, supported by top-of-the-line craftsmanship, technology and quality, to customers around the globe.
The objectives of the campaign were:
- To build awareness via social media buzz around the biggest international jewellery festival in India.
- To promote the entire event on a real time basis and derive maximum engagement.
- To spread the elegant and grand vibes that go hand in hand with a jewellery festival.
- To showcase GJEPC and IIJW as pioneers of the Gem and Jewellery industry and to promote the jewellers associated with the same.
- A lot of jewellery lovers, retailers, bloggers, celebrities follow GJEPC/IIJW on Social Media.
- IIJW became the face of GJEPC and the jewellers, for promoting the jewellery on a grand scale.
- Celebrities attract a lot of attention and glamour and have a large audience base and followers.
The challenge was to drive the audience to GJEPC on social media platforms-
- Getting followers to talk and engage with a jewellery related brand.
- Positioning the event as grand and glamorous, while promoting the jewellers at the same time.
From Katrina Kaif to Deepika Padukone, Konkana Sen Sharma and Sonakshi Sinha in 2010, Bipasha Basu and Soha Ali Khan to Lara Dutta, Kangana Ranaut to Kalki Koechin, Zeenat Aman to Hema Malini and Sonam Kapoor, the IIJW brand ambassador bewitched the audience adorning some of the most exclusive jewellery pieces from the house of Boucheron.
A lot of people get attracted by celebrity promotions. Keeping this in mind the communication promoted celebrity attendance at the event. The event was covered on Facebook and Twitter through live updates.
