I'm so excited that next week I will be heading off to the world's number one fine jewellery exhibition - the Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair!
This will be our 7th year attending. At 130,000 square metres, it's so big that it has to be spread over two world-class venues: The Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre and the newer AsiaWorld-Expo.
The trade fair has all things you might need being in the jewellery industry: diamonds, gemstones, pearls, equipment technology, watches all housed in incredible exhibition stands you wouldn't see anywhere else.
More than 44,000 buyers from 135 countries are going to the show to see 3,300 exhibitors from 45 countries.
We visit the fair to seek out new designs, equipment, meet with other people in our industry and find out the latest trends, which I'll be sharing with you in this blog throughout the fair.
