(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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
