430+ global exhibitors participate in twin jewellery shows
This year's twin jewellery shows have attracted more than 430 exhibitors. In addition to local jewellery companies, exhibitors from Mainland China, Germany, Italy, Japan and Singapore are taking part in the event, including the Italian pavilion that comprises some 20 exhibitors. In addition, the Asia Pacific Creator Association will present innovative jewellery creations from a number of Hong Kong designers.
Sophia Chong, Deputy Executive Director of the HKTDC, said: "Many exhibitors taking part in the jewellery shows have continued to explore opportunities in the retail market during the pandemic, while local consumers crave for jewellery pieces with unique designs and attractive pricing. That's why we have fully opened this year's shows to public visitors. At the same time, Simply Shopping Fest will feature six exhibit zones with more than 540 exhibitors showcasing products from Taiwan, Japan, Australia and France, along with other countries and regions. The government will soon issue the second phase of the Consumption Voucher Scheme (CVS), which will stimulate the local public to embark on a new wave of spending. In addition, the opening of the MTR Exhibition Centre Station will provide greater convenience for many, elevating the entire shopping experience at the three fairs."
Jewellery industry further explores local market and online business
Helped by the stabilisation of the local pandemic situation in April and May and the first phase of the CVS by the government, Hong Kong's total retail sales rose in value by 4.7% year on year in April and May. It is expected that the second phase of the CVS and other government measures will continue to stimulate the local jewellery retail market. Lawrence Ma, Chairman of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show Fair Organising Committee, pointed out that the continuation of the pandemic combined with increased geopolitical and global economic uncertainty have led many in the jewellery industry to shift their focus to the local market in addition to online opportunities. "More and more jewellery retailers are looking to expand their online sales business and promote their brands and products to the target consumer market through livestreaming and social media promotion," Mr Ma said.
Exquisite jewellery pieces make their Hong Kong debut
This year's Hong Kong International Jewellery Show consists of five highlighted zones, including "World of Glamour", which showcases the artistry and world-renowned expertise of Hong Kong's fine jewellery sector and has attracted many well-known local jewellery companies to participate.
