COVID-19 Updates & Resources

Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong rescheduled to 26 – 29 November 2020 at AsiaWorld-Expo

Dear Valued Exhibitors, Visitors and Industry Professionals,

As the international community works tirelessly to contain and prevent the spread of COVID-19, our hearts go out to those who have been directly affected by the outbreak. In addition, Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong (JGA) is also making necessary adjustments to its business operations per the current climate.

Due to the travel restrictions impacting industry participation and COVID-19 concerns, we have made a difficult but necessary decision to reschedule the event from 25 – 28 June 2020 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) to 26 – 29 November 2020 at the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE).

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused by the postponement.  However, we believe by securing these new dates towards the end of the year will allow the Jewellery community the opportunity to regather and capture last-minute opportunities just before the year-end peak season. We will continue to work collaboratively with all our partners to ensure that we will deliver the same level of engagement that everyone expects from our in-person events.

In addition, Jewellery & Gem ASIA Hong Kong’s rescheduling has inspired us to find creative ways to keep our partners – exhibitors, visitors, industry associations and vendors – connected with the global jewellery community from anywhere in the world. In the coming months, we will launch a virtual event complementing the offering of our physical shows and leveraging our powerful trading platform – JewelleryNet.

This online sourcing experience will give buyers free and unlimited access to the latest products and services of a wide range of suppliers, live webinar presentations and business matching opportunities. Stay tuned for more information on how you can benefit from this online event.

We thank you for your continued support and patience as we navigate these unprecedented circumstances together.

In the meantime, let’s look out for each other, stay safe and always follow our community guidelines. We look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong!
