Two jewelry trade shows that were set to take place in Hong Kong next month have been rescheduled. They will now be held in August.

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council posted the following notice on its website:

The safety of exhibitors and buyers has always been a priority for the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). With the Compulsory Quarantine of Persons Arriving at Hong Kong from Foreign Places Regulation in place, overseas exhibitors and buyers would have great difficulty joining the HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show 2020 and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show 2020 on 18-21 May as originally scheduled. After consultation with the industry, the HKTDC will further reschedule the twin fairs to 3-6 August 2020 to be held at AsiaWorld-Expo.

Large-scale international exhibitions are important channels through which global jewellers can expand their business. To help industry players capture business opportunities during this difficult time, we launched a month-long Spring Virtual Expo @ hktdc.com Sourcing on 1 April 2020, enabling global suppliers to maintain and establish contact with buyers during the traditional peak sourcing season. When the situation improves, the HKTDC will resume physical exhibitions as soon as possible to help global buyers and sellers recover the business lost during the pandemic. We will also provide O2O Business Connect business-matching service with video conferences for buyers who cannot attend the fairs.

We hope that the online promotion together with the physical exhibitions in August can complement each other and maximise synergy. The HKTDC will monitor the situation closely and provide details of the rescheduling arrangement to exhibitors and buyers in due course.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
