The Mobile Buyer Guide is available as an application for download to smartphones and tablets of leading brands and can also be accessed online with any mobile device. It features regularly updated exhibitors and product directories, interactive floorplans, show schedules and other useful information for visitors.

"The Mobile Buyer Guide is a great tool to manage your sourcing trip. We got thousands of exhibitors at each show, so we need to support navigation onsite. But what's really special is that you download the Mobile Buyer Guide only once and we keep providing updates regularly. Think of it as jewellery supplier directory that easily fits your pocket and that doesn't outdate. During show periods it features suppliers' booth numbers. And between shows it is a very handy reference with thousands of contacts. A message function will let you know the latest news and show information", explained Jerome Hainz, Manager eBusiness UBM Asia.

The Mobile Buyer Guide is sponsored by Antwerp World Diamond Centre, the organiser of the the Antwerp Diamond Pavilions at the June and September Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fairs [http://www.awdc.be/en/ad-pavilion-hong-kong].

JewelleryNetAsia has created a dedicated page [http://www.jewellerynetasia.com/en/fairapp.html?cmpid=PRN] for easy downloading of the Mobile Buyer Guide.
