The JNA Awards has rebranded as Jewellery World Awards (JWA) as it sets its sights on global expansion.
Organised by Informa Markets Jewellery, the new-look JWA will open eight categories for entry on January 29, and culminate in a ceremony and gala dinner during Jewellery and Gem World Hong Kong fair in September 2021.
The JNA awards were first introduced in 2012 and have grown in reputation and scale ever since.
After almost a decade of dominating the Asia region, the JWA is now looking to expand across the global and is encouraging more British companies to get involved.
Letitia Chow, chairperson and founder of JNA Awards at Informa Markets Jewellery, says: “JWA will continue to thrive on the legacy of its former self, the JNA Awards. It targets to include companies and entrepreneurs regardless of business size, geographical origin and nature of business. It aims to include every facet of the trade, from every corner of the world. We will keep recognising and honouring exceptional companies, as well as outstanding individuals with significant contributions and positive impact in the world of jewellery and gemstones.”
Key JWA events will be held during Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA) in June, as well as Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong (JGW) in September.
