AddThis Social Bookmark Button

A bigger and even better September Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair (September Fair awaits exhibitors this year, fair organiser UBM Asia announced.  With the Fair occupying 135,000 square metres of exhibition space, it is the largest edition ever.

The September Fair, the world’s number one fine jewellery event, will be held from 11 to 15 September 2013 at AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) and from 13 to 17 September 2013 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The Fair will feature more than 3,500 exhibitors from 48 countries and regions and is expected to bring in around 52,000 visitors from around the world.

 

Immediate access to UBM’s global jewellery fair by Trade Buyer ID

The Trade Buyer ID project was rolled out in June 2012 to make visiting UBM Asia’s jewellery fairs in Hong Kong and China an easy and enjoyable experience right from the registration step.  Due to the overwhelming success of the launch and the positive feedback from jewellery buyers, UBM Asia decided to give holders of Trade Buyer ID direct access to all of its jewellery fairs around the world. Instead of getting an admission badge for each jewellery fair, visitors simply present the Trade Buyer ID Card and walk directly into their chosen fairs.  As of today, over 10,000 jewellery buyers from 92 countries and regions have received Trade Buyer ID Cards.

For visitors who have not upgraded their visitor’s badge yet, all they need to do is to bring along their identity documents and visit the Trade Buyer ID Card service counter at AsiaWorld-Expo or the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre in person during the September Hong Kong Jewellery& Gem Fair to upgrade the card.  The new Trade Buyer ID Card is valid until December 2015.

A truly global jewellery event with strong industry participation

The September Fair has the highest participation of key players in the world’s jewellery trade. This year, the Fair features 22 group pavilions spanning over two world-class venues. Groups represented are from Antwerp, Brazil, China, Columbia, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, the United States, and the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA). A bigger Antique & Vintage Jewellery section will also greet visitors at a new location, the Convention Hall of HKCEC. 

The Alrosa Group, Russia’s leading diamond company and the world’s biggest diamond miner by volume, will launch its first diamond auction at the September Fair at AWE. In addition, a series of special events focused on Japanese pearls will be staged, including pearl jewellery parades and pearl seminars at AWE and a fair reception at HKCEC, sponsored by the Japan Pearl Promotion Society and the Japan Pearl Exporters’ Association. The Fair will again feature the world’s largest Diamond Pavilion, Asia’s biggest Gemstone marketplace and the biggest display of Hong Kong jewellery in the world.
