News this week: UBM Asia, a subsidiary of UBM plc, will launch a new trade show, Mineral & Gem Asia, next year. Supported by The Munich Show, the inaugural edition of Mineral & Gem Asia will run from 27th to 30th June at the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) in Hong Kong.
Exhibitor products at the four-day show will cover a range of rough and polished gemstones, fossils, decorative and ancient stones, art pieces and various mineral products. A special preview of the show was held in conjunction with this year’s June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).
Wolfram Diener, senior vice president of UBM Asia, commented, “We feel that the time is ripe for a new truly international event in Asia exclusively on minerals, fossils, rough gemstones and decorative stones. In Europe, there is The Munich Show, and in the U.S., there’s the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. We will launch what’s destined to be one of the premier mineral and gemstone shows in the region – Mineral & Gem Asia in June next year.”
