DUBAI - The latest research and development on new varieties of gold will be focused during the eighth Dubai City of Gold Conference that is an annual global event and scheduled next month.

Organised by the Dubai Gold & Jewellery Group (DGJG), it will highlight future trends in research to produce transparent gold, colour changing gold, and functional and smart gold alloys. It will also put spotlight on new gold colours such as purple and blue, gold alloy effects, powder metallurgy, gold based composites and new colored 
gold coatings.

The conference, to be held on November 13, 2011features a presentation by Dr. Fillipe Samuel Silva, director at University of GuimarEues, Portugal entitled 'New Frontiers in Jewellery industry -- a Research & Development Approach.'

New research and development is poised to influence the gold and jewellery markets, consumption and jewelry marketing trends in the near future and will multiply the usage of gold. Progress on technologies such as textile based, sputtering techniques, laser sintering and nanotechnologies will also be assessed in light of their expected impact on the usage of gold not only in jewellery but also in industry.

The conference, divided into three sections, Bullion, Jewellery and Diamonds, will be attended by 450 of the industry's key stakeholders such as CEOs, analysts, bankers and representatives from the Government of Dubai.

Anan Fakhreddin, chairman of DGJG, said: "We are bringing some of the industry's most influential speakers to Dubai so that they can share their knowledge and provide insights on the latest trends in precious metals and diamonds. I would also like to thank our sponsors, Dubai Multi Commodities Exchange, Emirates NBD, Standard Bank and the Kaloti Group for their continued commitment and support to this event -- which further cement's Dubai's leadership position in the gold and jewellery trade."
