At the opening ceremony, Dr Bernard Chan, Hong Kong SAR Acting Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, was the Guest of Honour.

The 40th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show, dedicated to finished jewellery, will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from February 29. 

Sophia Chong, Deputy Executive Director of the HKTDC, said: “This is the first time since the pandemic that the ‘two shows, two venues’ format has been reinstated. The two fairs have attracted over 4,000 exhibitors from 44 countries and regions, forming the world’s leading jewellery trade platform. More than 60% of the exhibitors came from outside Hong Kong, which signifies the high international profile of the two fairs.” 

Winston Chow, Chairman, HKTDC’s Jewellery Advisory Committee, said: “We are delighted that the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show is returning to AsiaWorld-Expo for its 10th edition this year. Together with the 40th Hong Kong International Jewellery Show, the theme of this year’s event is Be Part of the Splendid Legacy, and we are delighted to be achieving this unforgettable milestone together with our international exhibitors and buyers.”
