International Jewellery Show sets new exhibitor record

Mar '07
A new exhibitor record has been set by the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show 2007, which opened and continues through March 10 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

Extended to five days because of its popularity, the show this year has attracted more than 2,180 exhibitors from 41 countries and regions. Those attending include more than 2,700 VIPs from 71 buying missions organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (TDC), which also organised the jewellery show.

A major sourcing hub for jewellery in the Asia-Pacific region, the Hong Kong jewellery industry "is enjoying glittering growth," said Mr Charles Chan, Chairman of the TDC Jewellery Advisory Committee and President of the Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers Association, speaking at the opening ceremony. "In 2006, Hong Kong's total exports of fine jewellery increased 13.7 per cent to US$3.7 billion," Mr Chan added.

Exports to Hong Kong's top three markets also grew, with the United States up seven per cent, the United Kingdom up 11 per cent and France up 32 per cent over the previous year. Promising results were achieved in developing markets as well, with exports to the Chinese mainland, India and Russia jumping 47 per cent, 83 per cent and 209 per cent respectively.

Joining Mr Chan at opening ceremony were The Hon Vincent Fang, Chairman of the Panel on Commerce and Industry of the Hong Kong Government's Legislative Council, and Mr Fred Lam, Executive Director of the TDC.

This year's show spotlights a vast range of jewellery and watches in six zones. Debuting this year, the Antique & Vintage Jewellery section was created in response to the demand for retro designs, while the new Jade Jewellery section showcases the classic luxury of jade.
