The 14th edition of Asia’s Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Fair – September opened its doors Tuesday and will run till September 16 at AsiaWorld-Expo, Hong Kong.
The show houses around 400 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions in 11,360 square meters of exhibition space. More than 80 percent of the exhibitors are from overseas; among them are companies from mainland China, Italy, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Poland, Singapore, Thailand, UK, USA, Hong Kong and Taiwan regions. More than 6,600 buyers are expected to visit over the four-day period.
The event features several attractions, including five group pavilions, representing mainland China, India, Korea, the Philippines and Taiwan region. The popular Stainless Steel Jewellery Pavilion has around 40 suppliers.
Teaming up with the editors of AFJA Review, "Editor’s Choice" is a new addition to the fair. Exhibitors’ products, selected by the editors, are displayed under four categories—stainless steel, natural materials, crystals and semiprecious stones, and pearls and imitation pearls. This special display presents visitors inspired choices and up-and-coming trends.
“The launch of Editor’s Choice is a result of feedback from buyers and part of our effort to enhance attractions at 9FJ,” said Ms Celine Lau, director of Jewellery Fairs at UBM Asia Ltd. “September is a prime time for stocking for the holidays and sourcing for Spring/Summer 2017 collections,” Lau continued. “And with 9FJ being held alongside the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, buyers can tap opportunities in two shows, in one trip.”
