HONG KONG, Mar 1, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the 35th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show starts its five-day run (1-5 March) today at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

This year's show welcomes more than 2,580 exhibitors from 39 countries and regions, including new exhibitors from Lebanon, Sweden and Ukraine, showcasing finished fine jewellery such as top-tier jewellery pieces, internationally celebrated brands, new designer collections, antique jewellery and bridal jewellery.

The fifth Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show opened on Tuesday (27 February) at the AsiaWorld-Expo, where an assortment of jewellery raw materials is on offer until Saturday (3 March). Together, the twin shows feature a record of more than 4,550 exhibitors from 52 countries and regions, forming the world's largest jewellery marketplace.

- Buying missions to boost business opportunities

"With improving global economic conditions, the jewellery industry has also steadily recovered," said Benjamin Chau, Deputy Executive Director of the HKTDC. "Consumers increasingly look for product diversity. To help industry players meet demand, this year's Hong Kong International Jewellery Show has launched an IT Solutions for Jewellery zone, showcasing the latest technology and solutions for inventory management, design, production and e-commerce.

The new zone aims to help industry players leverage new technologies and applications to develop innovative designs and services to enhance competitiveness." Mr Chau added that in order to help industry practitioners capture more business opportunities, the HKTDC has organised 115 buying missions comprising more than 8,000 companies from 75 countries and regions, including department stores, specialty stores, retail chains and e-tailers.

- Thematic zones for different needs

Catering to buyers' various sourcing needs, the Jewellery Show is organised into various thematic zones to showcase products in different categories. Apart from the new IT Solutions for Jewellery zone, the Hall of Fame returns this year featuring the collections of nearly 40 style-leading jewellery brands, including Lao Feng Xiang (Booth: CEC 3B-F14) and Frank Wu (Booth: CEC 3B-E06) from the Chinese mainland, and GIORGIO VISCONTI (Booth: CEC 3B-D14) from Italy.
