Hong Kong International Jewellery Show
Brand New Arrangement in 2014
“2 Shows 2 Venues” to allow further expansion
10 June 2013 - Being one of the world-class jewellery trade platform, the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show's reputation has grown through years and been highly valued by both buyers and exhibitors. The 30th HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show, which has just concluded in March 2013, attracted 3,341 exhibitors and 42,113 buyers from 49 & 138 countries and regions respectively, setting new exhibitor and buyer records.
As the show reached a new pinnacle of success in 2013 and given the extensive support from stakeholders through years, the demand for exhibition space is compelling. It is imminent to ensure the show has sufficient space for further development so as to solidify Hong Kong as a key trading hub for the industry and retain its leading role in exhibition of its kind. Starting from March 2014, the Show will split into two brilliant shows at two great venues: the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show. Finished jewellery products will be exhibited at the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 5-9 March 2014 while the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show will be a specialised trade platform for loose stones and raw materials in the AsiaWorld-Expo from 3-7 March 2014. This initiative will provide dedicated trade platforms which are more professional and focused for the product categories concerned.
“The brand new arrangement of ‘2 Shows 2 Venues’ will allow more exhibitors to participate, in which a greater variety of jewellery exhibits will be on feature. The two shows are perfectly timed and housed to generate a synergistic effect, maximising exhibitors’ exposure and buyers’ sourcing opportunities, and providing a perfect setting for the shows to grow and prosper’, Mr Benjamin Chau, Deputy Executive Director of HKTDC said.
In 2012, Hong Kong’s exports of precious jewellery reached US$ 7 billion, ranking Hong Kong as the world’s sixth largest exporter of precious jewellery and reinforcing its status as the world's premier trading hub for jewellery. The new arrangement of ‘2 Shows 2 Venues’ will enlarge prosperous business opportunities as well as to further fortifying Hong Kong as a major trading platform for the industry.
