The Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (CEC) evenafter its expansion in 2009, will not be big enough to accommodate all existing exhibitors in ONE location. A clearproduct sectorisation between two venues is the ONLY way tomake both venues attractive and efficient for buyers to visit the location(s) of their choice. One Fair Two Venues New layout to suit buyer’s needsEasy to Source ‧ Same Product ‧Same Area
Product sectorisation is applied to ALL exhibitors, not just to a specific country.All existing, long-history exhibitors will have priority in selecting their preferred booth location.Both venues will consequently be EQUALLY SUCCESSFUL for their exhibitors and visitors. One Fair Two Venues
Fair’s expansion to generate more business opportunitiesThe September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2009 is set to become the biggest ever. The Fair’s AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) venue opens two days before the Fair in the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) and will occupy eight halls, that is 80% bigger than last year’s. We expect that all available space will be fully booked. Meanwhile, with the completion of the HKCEC’s expansion project, the Fair will finally get full use of the venue and expected to be fully booked by the finished Jewellery exhibitors. The TOTAL exhibition area will be around 100,000 square metres gross, represents an increase of around 20% in size, and almost 3,000 exhibitors from around the world to participate at the Fair, that is about 14% increase compared with 2008 edition. The expansion of the Fair affirms its reputation at the biggest international jewellery fairs worldwide. It also is expected to attract more participants and generate more business opportunities, also given the potential of the Asian jewellery market.
