HKTDC Twin Shows Signal Hong Kong Comeback


Following Hong Kong’s lifting of the mandatory mask mandate and full resumption of travel, practitioners in the jewellery industry from around the world flocked to the citys first major trade fair. Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the 39th HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and the 9th HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show gathered over 2,500 exhibitors and successfully concluded on 5 March 2023.


According to HKTDC, the five-day fairs attracted over 60,000 buyers from 130 countries and regions, with significant increase in participation from Mainland China and the Asia region. In an on-site survey with around 700 exhibitors and buyers, about 60-percent exhibitors and buyers expected their business to return to pre-pandemic levels in one year, reflecting a positive outlook for the jewellery sector.


In addition to the high volume of buyers and exhibitors, robust business results were seen across the shows. Exhibitor Bruno Scarselli and Davide Scarselli, co-owners of Scarselli Diamonds Inc, from the United States shared: The twin shows are making a strong comeback this year. After the pandemic, the mood is positive and buyers are willing to buy. We have met a lot of buyers from Europe, Japan, Korea, Mainland China and the Middle East who are very interested in our blue and pink diamonds. Twelve buyers, including six from Mainland China, already placed on-site orders amounting to $11-12 million for our fancy-coloured diamonds.”


Under HKTDCs EXHIBITION+ hybrid model, global jewellers and traders can connect online for another week beyond the physical fair days until 12 March via the Click2Match smart business matching platform. Over 1,800 meetings between exhibitors and buyers have been scheduled.


Sophia Chong, deputy executive director of HKTDC said: “We are delighted to see the overwhelming support from industry buyers and exhibitors for the twin shows. The vibrant atmosphere, busy traffic and packed booths not only reflected the global jewellery markets pent-up demand after three years and strong buying power, but also reaffirmed Hong Kongs position as the worlds premier trade fair capital in Asia which brings the world together to do business and to build relationships.”
