Buyers From 99 Countries Attended Asia’s Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair
More than 5,400 unique visitors from 99 countries and regions attended Asia’s Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair – March. Sixty percent of the buyers came from overseas, while 21 percent and 19 percent of visitors came from mainland China and the Hong Kong region, respectively. The four-day event was held March 3 – 6 in Halls 3, 6 & 8 of the AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong. The top 10 visiting countries and regions outside of China and Hong Kong are India, USA, Korea, Italy, Japan, Taiwan region, Australia, Spain, Thailand, and the UK. The Top 10 altogether accounted for roughly 34 percent of the total number of visitors. “Sixty percent of visitors are from overseas, a fact that reflects the fair’s renowned status as an international trading platform for fashion jewelry and accessories,” said Celine Lau, director of Jewellery Fairs at UBM Asia Ltd. The fair gathered 448 exhibitors from 17 countries and regions. Some exhibits were under the four theme zones: “Fashion Accessories Zone”, “Stainless Steel Jewellery Pavilion”, “Sense Zone” and “Fashion Jewellery Atelier”, and six group pavilions representing mainland China, India, Korea, the Philippines, Thailand, and Taiwan region. “The newly launched pavilion – 'Fashion Jewellery Atelier' – received warm feedback from buyers and exhibitors alike. We are glad to see that local talents have gained valuable experiences and industry insights at the fair; it will help the industry to grow,” Lau said.
