The 29th edition of the June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair has opened at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). Occupying more than 70,000 square meters of exhibition space, the four-day fair runs until June 26 with more than 2,200 exhibiting companies from 41 countries and regions.

“During an economic slowdown, companies choose to exhibit in reputable trade events that attract quality buyers. This edition of the June Fair is seeing many repeat exhibitors. This shows the June Fair offers genuine benefits to them,” says Celine Lau, director of jewelry fairs at UBM Asia.

The fair features 16 specialty themed pavilions. One of the major highlights is the Diamond Pavilion, which houses about 500 local and overseas diamantaires. The Gemstone Pavilion meanwhile features more than 500 international gemstone suppliers.

Lau added that the top 10 sources of pre-registered visitors are: Hong Kong, mainland China, India, Taiwan, the United States, the Philippines, Australia, Japan, Korea and Thailand. The top 10 account for 86 percent of the total pre-registered visitors. “Furthermore, we are also glad to welcome buyer delegations from mainland China, Iran, Israel, Russia and Vietnam to our fair. Sixteen groups of delegations from China participate. The potential of emerging market is remarkable,” she says.

The June Fair also offers participants various learning opportunities. GRS Lab and the Gemmological Association of Hong Kong will host seminars on timely industry topics. On June 25, the GRS Lab will discuss its new book titled “Pigeon Blood Valley” and share the latest market intelligence about rubies from the city of Mogok, Myanmar. The Gemmological Association of Hong Kong will discuss the technology for identifying laboratory-grown diamonds.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
