HKTDC’s jewellery show goes to two venues in 2014

News this week: The recently concluded Hong Kong International Jewellery Show, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), will adopt a “2 Shows 2 Venues” format beginning in March 2014.

The new arrangement will see the show split into the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show to run concurrently at two separate venues. According to the HKTDC, finished jewellery products will be exhibited at the International Jewellery Show in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 5th to 9th March, while loose stones and raw materials will feature at the International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show in the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) from 3rd to 7th March.

Benjamin Chau, deputy executive director of HKTDC was quoted saying, “The brand new arrangement of ‘2 Shows 2 Venues’ will allow more exhibitors to participate, in which a greater variety of jewellery exhibits will be on feature. The two shows are perfectly timed and housed to generate a synergistic effect, maximising exhibitors’ exposure and buyers’ sourcing opportunities, and providing a perfect setting for the shows to grow and prosper.”
