The Best Gem and Jewelry Trade Shows
JCK Las Vegas Jewelry Show
Every year, gem and jewelry events are held all around the world. Trade shows and fairs can range from small local events to luxurious international premier events. For those in the gem and jewelry trade, attending events is usually a part of doing business, but it isn't all work and no play. Jewelry fairs can also be fun and exciting, especially for those who have a real passion for their profession. So, for many gem suppliers, manufacturers and jewelry retailers, attending trade shows can be the highlight of their year. The trade events truly bring the industry together, providing an opportunity for consumers to meet retailers; retailers to meet wholesalers; and wholesalers to meet manufacturers. In a single trade show venue, everyone involved from the mine to the market can network and showcase the best of the best, from the latest jewelry trends and designs to new and exciting gem finds.
Jewelry fairs provide an opportunity to meet industry leaders face-to-face. Comparable to the Grammys and Oscars for Hollywood's A-listers, each gem and jewelry show is a platform of opportunity, whether the agenda is to buy, sell or just network with other professionals. But of the thousands of events hosted every year, which gem and jewelry events are simply not to be missed? It can be tough deciding on which jewelry fair to attend. Since it is not feasible to attend them all, industry professionals have to be selective.
Narrowing it down to just the biggest and main events, here are some of the most important annual gem and jewelry events that you won't want to miss!
India International Jewelry Show (IIJS)
HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show
HKTDC Hong Kong Jewelry Show
The Hong Kong International Jewellery Show is one of Asia's most anticipated industry events. Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), and held in Hong Kong's Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), this event brings together almost 4000 exhibitors. In 2014, the show attracted visitors from 145 countries, with over 70,000 attendees. At the HKTDC Jewelry Show, there is no shortage of gems and jewelry, as well as production tools and supplies. In 2014, HKTDC expanded the show to occupy two venues in response to the increasing demand for more exhibitors and space.
