The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre is celebrating its first full house since the pandemic with the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show utilising all its exhibition halls.
Held last week, the twin five-day jewellery shows attracted over 2500 exhibiting companies from 36 countries and regions, with half of them from overseas, and over 60,000 buyers from 130 countries and regions.
“There was no better time to be hosting the twin jewellery shows as the opening followed on the heels of the city’s lifting of the mask mandate,” said Monica Lee-Müller, managing director of Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre Management (HML).
“The full utilisation of exhibition spaces by the twin jewellery shows underscored a strong rebound of Hong Kong’s exhibition and convention sector. Since the reopening of borders with overseas destinations and the Mainland, HML has seen a surge in booking enquiries from both overseas as well as local exhibition and convention organisers.”
