(Press Release)
The September Hong Kong Jewelry and Gem Fair – otherwise known as the September Fair – has experienced increased demand for exhibition space over the years, leading organizer UBM Asia to expand the show into two venues: the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).

Hong Kong-based UBM Asia aims to create an effective platform that provides opportunities for exhibitors and buyers alike. Each edition of the show usually features new, value-added elements to benefit participants as well as fortify Hong Kong’s role as a leading jewelry trading hub.

Among the new elements unveiled recently is the Bridal Jewelry Pavilion. Its debut in 2015 has led to demand for an expanded edition this year. The fair also features old favorites, including the Fine Gem Pavilion, Fine Design Pavilion, Hong Kong Premier Pavilion, International Premier Pavilion, Hong Kong Pavilion, Designer Arena and Jadeite Gallery.

The participants’ welfare is among UBM Asia’s priorities. In 2015, it initiated a new security measure that entails the verification of the identity of badge holders at the venue’s entrance. Participants can expect such a measure to be implemented again this year to strengthen and maintain a business-friendly environment.

The September Fair is also a platform for lobbying and agenda-setting for the industry, as well as discovering new products and ideas in the jewelry marketplace. This year, the diamond auction of ALROSA, the Paspaley Pearl Auction, several conferences and other special events will be held during the fair at both AWE and HKCEC. The fair will also feature the Diamond Pavilion and Pearl Pavilion as well as the Gemstone Pavilion.

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.
