Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2020
As usually we couldn't miss Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair but this year was different. Because of the global pandemic and worlwidespread COVID-19 crisis the organizers decided to move the JGW 2020 from originally scheduled 15-19 September at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre for finished jewellery to 9-13 November to an online format.
"We know how important our Jewellery & Gem fairs are as powerful platforms where our community can come together, create strong business relationships and discover leads to drive up sales. We are conscious of the great responsibility that we hold as the organiser of the biggest jewellery events in the world -- led by our flagship show, JGW -- and no one is more disappointed in the decision to move the industry's foremost in-person event to 2021 than us," said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia.
"Our overriding priority has always been to provide our stakeholders with a safe, secure and the highest-quality sourcing experience possible, which is simply not feasible given the current circumstances. New challenges, however, afforded us new opportunities to work for creative solutions that will bring our community together in a new way -- Jewellery & Gem Digital World."
Without much hesitation we decided to join Jewellery & Gem Digital World - a virtual show that enabled us to present our latest amber products and offered an opportunity for digital product meetings. Digital solutions and dedicated B2B platforms bring together potential buyers and international manufactures from all over the world.
This year we presented mainly unique amber bracelets and prayer beads that caught attention last year but we added extra design features and more varieties of amber colors e. g. blue amber. Our clients were especially interested in amber jewelry made out of large amber pieces which results in massive beads which cannot go unnoticed.
Although Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair was so different from busy and intense meetings at venue, we are satisfied we had a chance to show our development and new lines of products.
