Jewellery & Gem WORLD (JGW) is temporarily relocating from Hong Kong to Singapore this September to stage Asia’s biggest and most significant B2B sourcing fair of the year – JGW Singapore. This bold and strategic move aims to make the show venue more accessible to international suppliers and buyers clamouring for the in-person show experience. The venue change is a one-off special arrangement applicable only in 2022, show organiser, Informa Markets Jewellery, announced today. JGW Singapore will be held from 27 to 30 September at Singapore EXPO. 

Placing safety and business rebuilding at the heart of its event planning, the Group’s jewellery vertical – Informa Markets Jewellery – identified Singapore as the ideal host for its flagship show in 2022. The city-state plans to steadily ease travel and social restrictions once the current Covid wave of infections reaches its peak, providing international exhibitors and buyers a viable venue where they can do business face to face, and offering greater flexibility to those who are unable to fly to Hong Kong due to current border restrictions and self-isolation requirements.  

 “Even against the background of a pandemic, Singapore has the capacity to securely and efficiently host the world’s most iconic jewellery show,” said Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets Jewellery. 

Special-edition Hong Kong fairs

Complementing the Singapore wholesale buying event are special editions of Informa Markets Jewellery’s signature Jewellery & Gem fairs in Hong Kong in June and September.

Scheduled for 16 to 19 June, Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA – Special Edition) is uniquely positioned in the mid-year buying calendar with exhibitors ready to supply merchandise for immediate delivery within the second half of the year and primed to build on the momentum sparked by the June show.

In addition Informa Markets Jewellery will launch Jewellery & Gem ASEAN Bangkok (JGAB) from 2 to 5 November. JGAB is a B2B cash-and-carry event especially focused on Southeast Asia-based buyers who need to restock instantly for the vital Christmas and New Year selling season. Informa Markets Jewellery’s 2022 agenda also includes 10 physical events in eight cities and five theme-based digital experiences.
