Special-edition fair is Hong Kong’s first in-person jewellery and gemstone sourcing event of the year

HONG KONG, 17 May 2022 – Professional buyers and jewellery lovers will once again be able to experience the energy and excitement of Hong Kong’s most awaited jewellery fair this summer – Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA) Special Edition, which is taking place from 16 to 19 June at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).


The first show of its kind to be held in the city this year, JGA is aiming for a repeat of its highly successful and innovative staging last year, which saw the show floor packed and exhibitors enjoying robust sales throughout the four-day event. The 2021 special edition drew 9,078 unique visitors (34% trade and 66% non-trade) who made 10,608 visits during the show. Its 19 seminars attracted a combined audience of more than 500 attendees and its livestreaming videos broadcast in Mandarin drew 17,198 views.


This June, JGA aspires to deliver another rewarding and enjoyable product discovery journey in a format that is responsive to the current sourcing requirements of both trade buyers and jewellery lovers.


“We are enhancing the show’s offering by way of a richer content environment,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia. “A lot has changed in the last couple of years, and live events like JGA brings together virtually every aspect of the industry into one value-filled in-person experience – from new products and trend insights to design directions and networking opportunities.”


Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs at Informa Markets Jewellery, underscored the significance of the special-edition event in creating additional cross-market opportunities and onsite sales for exhibitors while at the same time rekindling the market’s passion for jewellery shopping through its education-focused “I Love Jewellery” seminar and workshop series, and exclusive, limited-time jewellery offers. 


“We have gone to great lengths to ensure that JGA has something fresh and new to offer all attendees,” Lau said. “We aim to deliver a vibrant marketplace where impactful connections are made, inspiring success stories are shared and new resources are readily discovered.”
