The HKTDC jewellery shows have been cancelled until March 2021 due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
As part of its anti-pandemic measures, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government announced on 2 June that the compulsory 14-day quarantine for persons arriving in Hong Kong from overseas will be extended until 18 September 2020.
“The extension of this restriction means that overseas exhibitors and buyers will have great difficulty joining the HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show if they were to run from 3 to 6 August as scheduled,” HKTDC said.
“In consultation with industry representatives, it has been decided that the next jewellery shows will be held in March 2021 with details as follows:
HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show
1 – 5 March 2021 | AsiaWorld-Expo
HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show
3 – 7 March 2021 | Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
“Meanwhile, we are also consulting with the industry to explore other viable promotional options to help companies seize business opportunities during this challenging time. Details of any new arrangement will be announced in due course.”
