There is another annual tradeshow held alongside the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair. Asia’s Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair – September will be held September 16 - 19 at AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong, the same place and time as the raw materials portion of the larger September Hong Kong fair.
AFJ occupies Hall 2 and the Concourse of AWE, which totals around 11,360 square meters of exhibition space. More than 400 exhibitors, of which more than 80 percent are from outside Hong Kong, will be featured, including Mainland China, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, the Philippines, Thailand, Turkey, UK, USA, and Taiwan.
As with the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, the world’s largest fine jewelry fair, AFJ is owned and operated by UBM Asia.
Now in its 13th year, the September AFJ serves as the launching pad for Spring/Summer collections. It gives buyers from around the world the opportunity to preview and source upcoming trends in fashion jewelry and accessories long before they hit stores. It also offers buyer favorites and timeless bestsellers. Meanwhile, market specialties will be offered by exhibitors in five group pavilions, including mainland China, India, Korea, the Philippines, and Taiwan region. In addition, the Stainless Steel Jewellery Pavilion is back by popular demand.
“Since its launch in 2003, 9FJ has been providing both buyers and suppliers a professional platform to connect with each other and explore business opportunities,” said Celine Lau, director of Jewellery Fairs of UBM Asia Ltd. “The steady growth in the number of visitors and exhibitors over the years confirms the fair is fulfilling its goal.”
