HK Int’l Jewellery Show: Overseas buyer attendance up 28 percent

More than 32,000 buyers, 9 percent higher than last year, took part in the 27th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), which finished on 9 March. Overseas buyers at the five-day show were up 28 percent, with both mature and emerging markets showing more active order placing and confidence in the retail market.

"We saw encouraging figures and a strong response to the jewellery show this year. The buyer attendance figures tell us that the retail market is in recovery, not only from mature markets such as Europe and the US, but also from emerging markets such as Eastern Europe and India," said Lawrence Ma, chairman of the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show Fair Organising Committee and the HKTDC Jewellery Advisory Committee.
