IDE President Yoram Dvash said, “The response in the trade to last year’s ‘Fly to Buy’ campaign was overwhelmingly positive and brought many international buyers to our diamond complex. We expect this year’s campaign to greatly increase buyer traffic.”
The campaign will be intensively promoted with an international social media campaign.
