HONG KONG TWIN SHOWS OPEN MARCH 2023
After a long wait, the much-anticipated twin shows of the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show and Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show are set to open in March 2023 in a brand-new hybrid format.
Organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), the twin shows set to return under the brand-new EXHIBITION+ hybrid model. The physical shows will run concurrently from 1-5 March 2023 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), while Click2Match, its online smart business matching platform, will operate from 1-12 March 2023. The new EXHIBITION+ model reinvents trade fairs to serve global jewelers anytime and anywhere. Beyond everlasting beauty and grace, the line-up of industry seminars, jewelry parades and networking sessions will also deliver exceptional insight.
EXHIBITION+ comprises four key exhibition elements, including HKTDC-organized physical fairs, the smart business-matching platform Click2Match, online-to-offline seminars under the Intelligence Hub, and the hktdc.com Sourcing platform, to provide round-the-clock services that boost the flexibility and effectiveness of business promotion for SMEs and offer benefits such as extended fair periods, expanded platforms and enhanced opportunities. EXHIBITION+ extends face-to-face interactions from physical exhibitions to an online smart business-matching platform to help enterprises connect with business partners proactively. As always, the HKTDC’s 50 global offices will actively recruit international buyers, while its business-matching specialists will match suitable exhibitors according to buyers’ sourcing demands, and arrange online and offline meetings to facilitate business cooperation.
