SINGAPORE, Jan. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The fifth edition of Singapore Jewellery & Gem Fair is scheduled to be held from 27 to 30 October 2017 at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre. Boasting a four-year track record, the fair is a highly effective trading platform for jewellery industry players to explore vast business and investment opportunities. This is made possible by the success and reputation of the show as well as the widely popular hosted buyer programme. Over the years, the fair continuously invites and hosts important buyer groups from the region including Australia, Brunei, mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom and Vietnam.
As a result, many internationally-acclaimed jewellery manufacturers and wholesalers exhibit in this annual event to maximise industry exposure, boost their business, and meet key buyers. After a fruitful experience at the Singapore Jewellery & Gem Fair 2016, 40% of the exhibitors have immediately signed their contracts onsite to confirm their participations in the next edition.
Every year, the Singapore Jewellery & Gem Fair presents visitors with a rich program of showcases and activities. For instance, invited guests were able to enjoy spectacular runway shows with models donning some of the most beautifully-crafted bespoke jewellery available for purchase at the fair. In addition, the Singapore Jewellery Design Award has been consistently presented at the fair to recognise young jewellery designers for their talent and to allow their designs to make their first appearance in an international arena. Furthermore, the fair has forged strong partnerships with reputable gemological laboratories and jewellery design institutes to present a series of seminars for trade buyers and public visitors. Participants are able to learn, understand and gain a more profound appreciation of fine jewellery and gems.
