Lion City event to be complemented by special-edition Hong Kong fair in September
Excitement is building for Jewellery & Gem WORLD (JGW), which is staging its much-awaited return as the world’s biggest and most influential B2B jewellery event this September.
A trade show long identified with the city of Hong Kong, the iconic fair is gearing up for a comeback in Singapore – a one-off arrangement spurred by the Lion City’s recent move to significantly ease COVID safety measures, including allowing quarantine-free entry for all fully vaccinated arrivals starting from 1 April. The global event in Singapore is scheduled for September 27 to 30 at the Singapore EXPO, and will be complemented by JGW Hong Kong – Special Edition, which will also take place in a physical format at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from September 16 to 19.
The full JGW experience will return to Hong Kong in 2023 when the city’s international travel entry bans are lifted.
In addition to JGW Singapore, Informa Markets Jewellery will launch Jewellery & Gem ASEAN Bangkok (JGAB) from November 2 to 5 at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center. JGAB is a B2B cash-and-carry event that allows buyers from Southeast Asia and beyond to instantly replenish their stocks for the busy Christmas and New Year selling season. The Bangkok fair is positioned as the industry’s last wholesale buying fair of the year.
Additionally, preparations are in full swing for the special in-person editions of Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA Hong Kong – Special Edition) set for June 16 to 19, and JGW Hong Kong – Special Edition, which is scheduled for September 16 to 19. Both open to B2B buyers and jewellery lovers, the special-edition fairs are also expected to draw China-based visitors once cross-border travel resumes.
