The September Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair, otherwise known as the September Fair, has established itself as the largest fine jewelry tradeshow since its launch in 1983.
Organized by UBM Asia Ltd, it has received support from the industry and jewelry traders around the world for years. Increased demand for exhibition space led UBM Asia to expand the September Fair, thus in 2006, the fair has been held simultaneously in two venues: the AsiaWorld-Expo and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The dates for the upcoming tradeshow are September 13 – 17 at the AsiaWorld-Expo and September 15 – 19 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Among the new elements unveiled recently is the Bridal Jewellery Pavilion, which debuted in 2015, will be expanded for the 2016 edition. The Fair also includes the Fine Gem Pavilion, Fine Design Pavilion, Hong Kong Premier Pavilion, International Premier Pavilion, Hong Kong Pavilion, Designer Arena and Jadeite Gallery.
In 2015, organizers initiated a new security measure that entails the verification of the identity of badge holders at the venue’s entrance. Participants can expect such measure to be implemented again this year.
The September Fair is a platform for lobbying and agenda-setting for the industry, and for discovering the products and ideas that excite the jewelry market. Moreover, it brings global players together for a thoughtful dialogue. This year, the diamond auction of ALROSA, the Paspaley Pearl Auction, several conferences and other special events will be held during the Fair at both AWE and HKCEC.
Moreover, this mega fair will again feature the world’s biggest Diamond Pavilion and Pearl Pavilion, and Asia’s biggest Gemstone Pavilion.

* Hong Kong Jewellers’ and Goldsmiths’ Association
* The Hong Kong Jewellery and Jade Manufacturers Association
