Jewellery & Gem World Hong Kong is catering to all comers this September as it makes its show a combined physical and digital event.
The show’s organisers hope the physical show will get the industry back on its feet as it welcomes trade professionals, social buyers and jewellery lovers from 17-20 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Meanwhile, for those who cannot travel or are not comfortable with physical events due to the pandemic, JGW Virtual offers sourcing opportunities for the global B2B buyer community from 13-30 September.
The virtual show will enable trade participants to either prepare for JGW’s live days if they were already in Hong Kong or do business remotely with their shortlisted suppliers from anywhere in the world.
Pre-registration for free admission will open in early August, JGW revealed.
David Bondi, senior vice president of Informa Markets in Asia, commented: “JGW Physical is returning in September with a modified format and in a secure environment where one can do business with confidence.
“Although the show will look and feel different compared with previous September fairs, we believe it will inspire a level of engagement that is unique to face-to-face interactions.”
Celine Lau, director of jewellery fairs at Informa Markets Jewellery, added: “We are offering participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in a world that celebrates beauty, craftsmanship, innovation and design.
“For trade buyers, JGW presents a wholesale sourcing opportunity for a wide range of products.
“For jewellery lovers, this is where they can find export-quality occasion jewellery, memorable and timeless gifts, and stylish designs for everyday wear in a wide range of price points.”
