Israel To Have Largest Presence At Hong Kong International Jewelry Show

The Israeli diamond industry will have its largest turnout ever at the March 5-9 Hong Kong International Jewellery Show.

The Israel Diamond Pavilion, organized by the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI), will be the largest national pavilion in the show, with 90 companies.

In addition, seven major Israeli companies will exhibit in the Chancellor Room, which is devoted exclusively to diamonds, while 10 other Israeli firms will be exhibiting in the Hall of Nature and the Hall of Fame and various other locations throughout the show.

Many of the Israeli exhibitors will have translators in their booths to help them negotiate with Chinese-speaking buyers.

IDI’s information booth, located in the heart of the pavilion, will provide background on the Israeli diamond industry.

Asia is Israel’s second largest market for polished diamonds, accounting for more than 35 percent of the country’s polished diamond exports. In addition to Hong Kong, Israel supplies polished diamonds to other Asian markets, including China, India, Thailand, Singapore and Japan.

IDI Managing Director Eli Avidar says, « The Hong Kong March show is the most well-established in the region and attracts buyers from the entire region, as far off as Australia. The global industry is now on an upswing, after a very difficult period in 2012. We have seen good demand since the last quarter of 2012, and the trade shows we have already participated in since the beginning of the year have been very promising, » he adds.
