Organisers promote event’s proximity to markets in China and India.
Next month’s Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair is set to be 14% bigger than its previous June events, welcoming 1,700 exhibitors from more than 35 countries.
The exhibition will now fill 64,000 sqm of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and will run for three days from June 21 to 24.
Celine Lau, director of jewellery fair at UBM Asia, the event’s organiser, said: “This growth confirms the industry’s recognition of the June Fair as an effective way to promote products and meet target buyers.
“Hong Kong’s proximity to the booming economies of mainland China, India and the rest of Asia has made the city the preferred launch pad for companies looking to break into these markets.”
The fair will feature 14 group pavilions, including designers and companies from Antwerp, Brazil, mainland China, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Sri Lanka, Thailand, the United States, Taiwan region as well as the International Colored Gemstones Association.
The Hong Kong fair’s Diamond Pavilion will also be its biggest to date, housing a total 415 exhibitors from 10 countries.
