Rio Tinto Diamonds and Chow Tai Fook will return as “Headline Partners” for the fifth consecutive year of the JNA Awards.
In addition, Diarough Group, Israel Diamond Institute Group of Companies, Shanghai Diamond Exchange and Guangdong Land Holdings Limited have also renewed their sponsorship of the awards. Both IDI and SDE have been championing the JNA Awards since its launch, while Diarough and GDLAND have come on board as “Honored Partners” since 2014.
The JNA Awards honors companies and individuals that have demonstrated excellence and made positive contributions to their businesses and communities, with a focus on achievements made in Asia. Nominees are selected through an independent, transparent and rigorous judging process. The program culminates with a gala dinner and awards ceremony held in association with the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.
“The Awards plays an important role in celebrating and inspiring successes within the gemstone and jewelry industry, and our partners' loyal support has helped us make that happen,” said Letitia Chow, founder of JNA, Director of Business Development—Jewellery Group at UBM Asia, and Chair of the JNA Awards judging panel.
Jewelry trade magazine, Jewelry News Asia, the flagship publication of UBM Asia's Jewelry Group, is the organizer of the JNA Awards.
“It is particularly gratifying to receive continuous support from these distinguished industry leaders who share our values in promoting best practices within the industry and setting high standards to advance the global jewelry community,” said Wolfram Diener, UBM Asia senior VP. “Their involvement will certainly create synergy to drive the industry forward with greater innovation and sustainable growth.”
