    Default Hong Kong show open to the public?

    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if the hong kong shows are open to anyone who signs up?

    I'm just a pearl lover who is not in the business but

    since HK is not far and I visit about twice a year I was thinking of visiting while the show is going on.

    Is it possible to have just a look ? If I could buy some, that would be great but it would be just nice to look at all the
    beautiful things.

    if anyone knows, pls let me know!

    thanks

    I think it's only for people in the trade.

    seoulite - not sure where you're located, but some of the regional shows are much easier to get in. A few years back I went to the Taipei show with mom and you just have to pay a small entrance fee. Of course the scale was tiny, but still fun and not as overwhelming!

    It is trade-only, but at this show you're not required to bring all the documents you have to show at JCK or other US shows. You can get into the Hong Kong show with a business card that matches the application you submit. This can be done on the ground in Hong Kong the day of the show - business card showing you're in the trade and a passport.

    Charlotta, yes I managed to get in. The first day it was quiet, probably because of the political situation in Hong Kong.
    The 2nd day it was very busy and buying was good according to some whole salers.
    Was nice to see Wendy Graham again, Jeremy and Hisano and David Norman. Also Kira from Marc'Harit, Denmark.
    Jeremy lost a lot of weight, he looked very well. Hisano always looks like a princess.

    When I saw Jeremy in NYC my jaw dropped to the floor and immediately mobbed him for his new diet secrets. He basically just cut out alcohol for the past half a year, so that doesn't help me unfortunately since I don't drink much to begin with!
