16 june 2017
At the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair this year, 47 Israeli companies will exhibit in the Israeli Diamond Pavilion under the Israel Diamond Institute Group of Companies (IDI) umbrella, while 6 others will be located elsewhere in the Fair, says a press note from IDI.
The show runs June 22 – 25, 2017 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, with the diamond pavilion located in Hall 3BC. A lounge adjacent to the diamond area will feature dedicated Get Diamonds stations which allow a search (also available in smart phones) in English and in Chinese of all Israeli exhibitors’ goods offered.
In addition, IDI will launch a special website (which will go live on June 21) with full details of all the Israeli companies participating in the show, including background and contact information, as well as a map of the Israel Diamond Pavilion.
IDI Chairman Shmuel Schnitzer said, “We are optimistic about Asia as we have been seeing a definite rise in demand for diamond jewelry in these markets, especially in China. We believe that the long-term prospects for Asia as a market for polished diamonds from Israel are excellent and it remains a key target for our industry."
