The 40th World Diamond Congress, which will be held in Israel from March 28 – 30, 2023, will feature a full roster of illustrious speakers, from the world of diamonds and beyond.

Here’s an alphabetical list: Edward Asscher, President of the World Diamond Council; David Block, CEO of the Sarine Technology Group; Gaetano Cavalieri, President of CIBJO, World Jewellery Confederation; Prof. Alon Chen, President of the Weizmann Institute of Science; Conroy Cheng, Vice-Chairman of Chow Tai Fook; H.E. Winston Chitando, Kimberley Process Chair and Minister of Mines of Zimbabwe; Bruce Cleaver, Co-Chairman of De Beers Group; Yoram Dvash, President of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses; David Kellie, CEO of the Natural Diamond Council; Aryeh Lightstone, former senior advisor to the US Ambassador to Israel; Boaz Moldawsky, President of the Israel Diamond Exchange; H.E. Antoinette N’Samba Kalambayi, Minister of Mines of the DRC and Moshe Salem, Vice-President of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses.

The World Diamond Congress, the WFDB’s most important event, convenes representatives of the 27 member bourses as well as leaders of the world diamond community every three years in a different diamond center. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the last World Diamond Congress was held virtually in September 2020. This time the event is being held as part of Israel Diamond Week, being organized by the Israel Diamond Exchange.

WFDB President Yoram Dvash said, “There has been an amazing level of interest in the 40th World Diamond Congress, especially as it is the first major event of the federation, post-Covid. We have lined up a top-level roster of speakers, who will address the key issues facing the diamond industry today, as well as fascinating topics in science and diplomacy. We are certain that this will be a Congress to remember.”
