The 3rdHong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show is slated to unfold from 1 to 5 March at the AsiaWorld-Expo, and the 33rdHong Kong International Jewellery Show is scheduled to take place from 3 to 7 March at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. The events are organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).

“This is the third year that we are using the ‘two shows, two venues’ format, an arrangement that has been well received by exhibitors and buyers alike,” said HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau. “By showcasing raw materials and finished pieces separately, we can accommodate more exhibitors with a more spacious exhibition environment and provide a greater selection of products to buyers with enhanced product specialisation.”

This year, the two shows will welcome more than 4,380 exhibitors from 50 countries and regions. From India, there will be over 120 exhibitors at the Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show and around 60 exhibitors at the International Jewellery Show. The Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council will have a pavilion at both events.

Benedict Sin, Chairman of HKTDC’s Jewellery Advisory Committee, said consumer demand for jewellery had rebounded since the price of precious metals fell last year, including gold and platinum. He noted that a report by WGC stated global gold demand for jewellery in the first half of 2015 slipping 8 percent but scaled up 2 percent in the second half of the year. He further added, “This indicates that consumers had capitalised on the price drop and returned to the consumer market for jewellery. Under the current economic conditions, consumers may prefer high quality and reasonably priced products rather than conspicuous brands. This may be good news for Hong Kong’s exporters as they are likely to receive more orders.”

At the two shows, new zones and pavilions will be set up to cater to different buyer demands. The Hall of Extraordinary will presenta series of high-end fine jewellery pieces. The Jewellery Show’s Hall of Fame will showcase collections by more than 40 top-tier international brands. Many countries and regions are setting up group pavilions at the two shows. A series of seminars and networking activities are lasted at the events.

Apart from trade and knowledge sharing the participants would unwind with a Royal Cruise-themed Gala Dinner hosted by the HKTDC at the conclusion of day one of the Jewellery Show.

The 17thHong Kong Jewellery Design Competition received 277 entries this year. Winning pieces of the Open and Student Group awards and the Craftsmanship & Technology Award will be showcased during the Jewellery Show.
