During the pre-registration for the June Fair, a visitor’s passport/ national identity card numbers/ Exit-entry Permit for Travelling to and from Hong Kong and Macau, and document scans may be collected for the prevention and detection of crime, and to protect the security and safety of the Jewellery exhibitions. Such data will be stored in the databases of the Organisers in order to verify the visitor’s identity before, during and – for a reasonable time – after the Jewellery exhibitions. The Organiser reserves the right to refuse admission to visitors who fail to comply with these requirements. Registration counters will be closed 30 minutes before the fair ends.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
