News this week: UBM Asia’s June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair covered more than 70,000 m2 of gross exhibition space at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) this year. The four-day trade show was held from 19th to 22nd June, and featured 1,894 exhibitors from 40 countries and regions.

According to UBM Asia, some 26,100 visitors from 117 countries and regions were in attendance. Around 64% of visitors originated from overseas with the largest participation recorded from mainland China (9,362), India (1,037), Taiwan (805), the Philippines (624), Thailand (608), Japan (511), the U.S. (440), Korea (421), Indonesia (291) and Australia (274).

Celine Lau, director of Jewellery Fairs of UBM Asia, commented, “The growth in exhibition space is a milestone of the June Fair. The roughly 10% growth in the number of visitors from Asia compared to last year’s edition shows that the region continues to be the engine of growth for the luxury jewellery market. The growth in the number of visitors from mainland China and India remained at double-digits this year.”
