BrilliAnt, the 8th edition of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair, goes international
ANTWERP, July 23, 2016 – The Antwerp Diamond Bourse, The Antwerp Diamond Club, The Antwerp Diamond Kring and the AWDC have announced that BrilliAnt, the 8th edition of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair (January 29-31, 2017), is opening its doors to international exhibitors.
The Seventh Edition of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair in the Antwerp Diamant Kring in 2016
The Diamond Kring’s trading hall, located in the heart of Antwerp’s diamond district, will host foreign exhibitors for the first time.
“The diamond trade is a global market,” says Thierry Polakiewicz, member of the Fair Organising Committee.
“Most diamonds pass through Antwerp two times: first as rough, and then as polished stones. The biggest diamond firms in the world are headquartered in the diamond district, making it the ultimate platform, where diamond dealers, polished diamond wholesalers and members of the jewellery industry and trade meet each other.”
“As an international diamond centre, it is only natural that our annual trade fair welcomes exhibitors from the world over. The choice of diamonds will be even larger and the offering more competitive! This makes it more likely that the Fair will satisfy jewellers’ demands,” Polakiewicz adds.
Applications to exhibit in the International Pavilion of BrilliAnt at the January 2017 edition will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis.
“We will accept companies of repute whose owners are members of any of the 30 bourses affiliated with the World Federation of Diamond Bourses. This is an opportunity for companies operating in niche markets to increase their visibility in Antwerp,” Polakiewicz concluded.
The Fair organisers will assist non-European/overseas diamond firms with the import and export formalities of their merchandise.
