Held from January 27th to 30th, 2010, the 21st International Jewellery Tokyo (IJT) drew a surprisingly successful close with 1,257 exhibitors participating from 33 countries and attracting 35,763 buyers despite not holding any educational seminars this year. Exhibitors gathered from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Malaysia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippine, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, UK, and the United States. 60 dignitaries including major jewelers, watch retailers, and government bodies participated in the inaugural opening ribbon cut ceremony held on the morning of January 27th. Amidst the global economic situation, those who participated in the show voiced opinion that they met more buyers than ever this year, and there was a buzz on the show floor.


Buyers from all over Japan and Asia Sourced Proactively On-site
Show Management conducted vigorous visitor promotion again this year, especially putting emphasis on inviting buyers with great buying power to this year's show. The 35,763 buyers at IJT included 500 executive buyers from Japan's top jewelers who were extended special invitations to source at the show including industry giants who joined the opening ribbon-cut ceremony such as Mr. Hayashi Murayama, Chairman of As-me Estelle Co., Ltd., Mr. Nilesh Sedani, Representative Director and President CEO of Verite Co., Ltd., and Mr. Hideki Tamura, President of F.D.C. Products Inc.

In addition, more than 3,000 international buyers visited IJT from 50 countries worldwide, including 800 “Premium Buyers” from countries such as China, Taiwan, Korea, Hong Kong, India, and Thailand who arranged group tours to Tokyo and arrived on-site in large buses. Among the impressive lineup of Premium Buyers were Mr. Zhi-Hong Xin, President of Shanghai Laofengxiang Yinlou Co., Ltd. (China), Mr. Winston Chow, Director & Deputy General Manager of Chow Sang Sang Holdings International Ltd. (Hong Kong), Mr. Ng Yih Pyng, Managing Director of Tomei Gold & Jewellery Manufacturing SDN BHD (Malaysia), and Mr. Seung Chul Paik, President of AURUM (Korea). The following are excerpts of comments by overseas buyers: “We visit IJT every year, and were especially satisfied with the product line up this year. We purchased large amounts of loose pearls worth 270,000 USD.” (Retailer/China) “We sourced for diamond jewellery and purchased and placed orders for 680,000 USD worth of products this year.” (Wholesaler/Taiwan) “We have 100 stores throughout the country and came to IJT to stock up for products. We purchased 84,700 USD worth of products this time, but will return again next year with a bigger budget as we were highly satisfied with IJT.” (Wholesaler/Thailand)
