HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show (4-8 March 2015)
HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show (2-6 March 2015)
In response to the ever-increasing demands for exhibition space and to maximise buyers’ sourcing opportunities, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) launched its “Two Shows, Two Venues” arrangement in March 2014. Finished jewellery products were exhibited at the long-established HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, while the HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show – a specialised trade platform for loose stones and jewellery raw materials – was held at the AsiaWorld-Expo.
Occupying two world-class venues, the 2014 shows attracted a record-breaking number of 3,856 exhibitors from 53 countries and regions, and welcomed more than 74,000 visitors from 145 countries and regions.
Riding on their great success in 2014, the combined force of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show, and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show will bring better business prospects to ever greater numbers of participants and continue to serve as the world’s largest marketplace for jewellery in spring. During the overlapping days, 4-6 March 2015, a complimentary shuttle bus service will be available between the two venues for the convenience of buyers.
The 2015 shows will continue the tradition of overseas pavilions including Brazil, the Chinese mainland, Columbia, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and the United States.
During the course of these events, buyers can enjoy social activities such as cocktail parties and receptions to make new contacts, while gaining valuable market intelligence through seminars and seeing the latest styles and trends in jewellery parades. In 2014, the two shows featured more than 30 events over seven days.
