Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2009 opens at AsiaWorld-Expo “One Fair, Two Venues” makes it the largest in the world

The Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Show, officially opened at AsiaWorld-Expo yesterday, soars to new heights as the world’s biggest jewellery and gem event through the first-time cooperation of two world-class exhibition venues - AsiaWorld-Expo and Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Hong Kong.  This successful “One Fair, Two Venues” model is playing a critical role in making Hong Kong a world-renowned Trade Fair Capital.

“Jewellery exhibition is amongst the very few exhibitions in Hong Kong in the past that encountered insufficient exhibition centre space problem.  For the very first time, the Hong Kong industry has successfully overcome this problem by using both major centres (AsiaWorld-Expo and Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre).  Through a first-time cooperation of the two centres – One Fair, Two Venues, this year the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2009 has successfully become the world’s biggest Jewellery fair, and Hong Kong’s biggest exhibition ever, by this first-time cooperation.  This proves that the space problem in Hong Kong can be solved immediately, by cooperation and by fully utilizing the two major centres in Hong Kong, instead of focusing the attention only in one or the other centre.  In fact, AsiaWorld-Expo still has 15,000 square metres of reserved additional space to meet the future growth of the Jewellery show,” remarked Allen Ha, Chief Executive Officer of AsiaWorld-Expo Management Limited.

“Hence, we welcome more cooperation between the two centres for the other two remaining industry exhibitions, namely Electronics, and Gifts, that may need to grow beyond one exhibition centre’s capacity in the long term.”

According to UBM Asia, the organiser of the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2009 has welcomed an overwhelming number of top-quality and professional regional and international buyers at AsiaWorld-Expo just on the first show day.  Therefore, it has been proven that the “One Fair, Two Venues” model with new product sectorisation is a win-win solution for all.

Asia’s Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair is held concurrently with the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Show at AsiaWorld-Expo from 21 – 24 September 2009.
