All eyes will be on Hong Kong this June as the global jewellery community gathers at Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA), show organiser Informa Markets Jewellery announced today.
Exhibitor sign-ups are pacing ahead, with around 1,500 industry-leading finished jewellery, gemstone and technology solutions suppliers from more than 30 countries and regions confirming their presence at JGA from 22 to 25 June 2023 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Popularly known as the June Hong Kong Fair, JGA is set to welcome exhibitors and buyers from overseas for the first time since 2019.
“Physical events are coming back strong as people seek opportunities for in-person connections. This has made us even more excited about what we have planned for Hong Kong this year, leading off with JGA,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia.
Professional buyers have shown tremendous support and interest in what is widely known as Asia’s biggest mid-year B2B jewellery marketplace. Online visitor registration is on course as anticipation builds for the latest styles and trends debuting at the show.
“JGA is once again asserting its standing as one of the best destinations to source all things jewellery,” said Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets Jewellery. “The jewellery sector, much like other industries, is currently facing a dynamic and challenging business landscape – one that underscores the importance of building genuine and deeper relationships with customers and of making one’s products and services more relevant to consumers. As the central meeting point perfectly timed for the coming peak selling seasons, JGA can help the buying community accomplish that.”
JGA has a reputation for offering a diverse range of finished jewellery and serving as a hub for precious materials sourcing. This year, the event’s signature pavilions – CORE, Fine Gem and Fine Design – will make a return. The CORE Pavilion features Hong Kong’s leading jewellery makers and highlights the city’s status as a design and manufacturing hub. In the Fine Gem Pavilion (FGP), top suppliers exhibit premium-quality diamonds, coloured gemstones and pearls that are sought after by fine jewellery manufacturers, legacy brands and collectors. Finally, the Fine Design Pavilion (FDP) is where esteemed jewellers will unveil their design-focused collections and one-of-a-kind creations.
In addition, the fair will feature its popular product-specific pavilions and trade association-led sections, along with a series of seminars and panel discussions
