The Jewellery and Gem World Hong Kong (JGW) trade fair, also known as HK September has been postponed until 9-13 November due to continuing travel restrictions and health concerns about COVID-19. JGW was originally scheduled for September in two venues: the loose precious metals exhibition was originally scheduled at AWE from 13-17 September, while finished jewellery and other related products was scheduled for 15-19 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The decision to hold JGW in November is to be a one-off arrangement. Despite rumours that the event may still be cancelled this year, the organisers state they are committed to supporting industry stakeholders by holding the trade fair. “We recognise that the spate of show cancellations and postponements in the first half of the year makes the JGW sourcing experience more important than ever for our community,” trade show organisers said in a statement.“It is the last global sourcing event on the jewellery trade show calendar this year, with the heaviest peak selling season just around the corner.”
