Panama Diamond Exchange (PDE) is taking its travelling roadshow to Chilean capital of Santiago, where a delegation of visiting PDE members will meet with key representatives of the local jewelry trade from July 27 through July 29.

This is the fourth PDE roadshow to travel to South America in the past two months, with previous delegations visiting Lima, Peru; Bogotá, Colombia; and Guayaquil, Ecuador.

The visits are part of the World Jewelry Hub’s two-pronged outreach program in Latin America, which includes periodic diamond and jewelry weeks bringing buyers to the World Jewelry Hub in Panama City, as well as roadshows taking PDE members directly into the region’s most important jewelry markets.

A highlight of the visit will be a B2B networking event on July 28 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Santiago – Vitacura, in the city’s business and commercial center. The event will feature a presentation about the World Jewelry Hub and its development program, and provide the opportunity for delegation members and key Chilean jewelers to meet and schedule one-on-one meetings.

Speaking of the importance of Chile, Judy Meana, PDE Vice President said, “With a median per capita household income of $14,000, it is home to Latin America’s most uniformly affluent population, and that offers tremendous opportunity for the diamond, gemstone and jewelry sectors. The synergies that exist between our members and its jewelry sector are obvious. I firmly expect the Chilean trade to become a fixture both in the Panama Diamond Exchange and the World Jewelry Hub.”

Among the PDE member companies scheduled to join the Chile roadshow are: AA Diamondz, A Diamante Group, De Viany Jewelers, DHV America, GemDiam (KiranGems), Gran Sabana Diamonds, MP Diamonds, Niru Group, Rosy Blue, Shlophili, and Yakubov Group Panama.

To date, 11 companies with offices in the World Jewelry Hub in Panama City have registered to be part of the PDE delegation, which will be led by Judy Meana, PDE Vice President, together with Lilibeth del Castillo, PDE Office Manager.
