Welcome Message

22 June 2018


 

I am delighted to welcome you to Asia’s No.1
mid-year fine jewellery show – the June Hong
Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.


The June Fair represents a microcosm
of the jewellery industry. This is where
decision-makers, influencers, established
manufacturers and professional buyers gather
to connect, initiate business relationships and
gain practical industry insights. We constantly
try to outdo ourselves each time by evolving,
re-energising and bringing fresh elements to
the fair that reflect market developments and
address industry needs.


This year, the Antique & Vintage Jewellery
Pavilion has been relocated to the Grand
Foyer while the Fei Cui Gallery has joined the
Fine Design Pavilion/Fine Gem Pavilion in the
Grand Hall. These highly curated floor spaces
are sparking cross-aisle synergy and delivering
an enhanced trade show experience to both
exhibitors and buyers.
You will also notice the strong presence of
gemmological laboratories, which underscores
the importance of consumer education,
transparency and scientific research in an
industry that has long been anchored in trust
and integrity.


We are also pleased to see a significant
increase in the number of fine and pearl
jewellery exhibitors from Japan. Exhibitor
numbers are up 27 percent to 108 fine
and pearl jewellery companies compared
with a year ago. Booked space among
Japan’s fine and pearl jewellery exhibitors
is likewise nearly 35 percent more than the
previous edition.


A constantly changing market calls for
innovative ideas and business excellence, and
I am happy to note that industry stakeholders
have stepped up to the plate. Yesterday,
we announced the finalists for the seventh
edition of the JNA Awards – one of the
most prestigious awards programmes in the
jewellery sector. I wish to extend my warmest
congratulations to all the participants whose
leadership, ethical values and strong culture of
innovation serve as an inspiration to many of
us in the industry.


On this note, I would like to thank all of
you for your support in making our Hong
Kong Jewellery & Gem Fairs the platforms that
they are today. I wish you a most productive
and inspiring time at the June Fair, and an
enjoyable stay in Hong Kong!
