    I'm not surprised Douglas - you can't count on the virus being over by then . At the moment one of the concerns is actually getting out of HK as there is no telling if flights will be cancelled. Or if you have to go into quarantine after the flight. Lets hope this passes quickly but time will tell.

    The organisers of the Hong Kong show promised exhibitors that they would have new stand allocations for the May show before the 14th of February. To date the organisers have not done so. I strongly suspect that there will be no show in May. Who would go to Hong Kong even then? I think that going to Asia is off most people's agenda for a long while. The silver lining in the cloud is that we have become very busy with people flying in to see us in the UK.

    We have decided not to exhibit in the May or June show. I feel that the majority of customers will not come to Asia at least for the foreseeable future.

    You have to do what you feel best for yourselves and your business. So many unknowns at this time.

    The HK Gem & Jewellery Fair goes Digital!!!
    https://exhibitions.jewellerynet.com/9jg/

    This means that they are not expecting going back to business as usual any time soon.

    HONG KONG, 11 September 2020 – Informa Markets Jewellery and Atelier Technology jointly launched today Jewellery & Gem Digital World (J&G Digital World), the first in a series of virtual events that will bring the global jewellery marketplace right to your home.

    Scheduled for 27 – 29 October, J&G Digital World will be live 24 hours a day during the event period with exhibitors’ individual team members having the flexibility of setting the time when they will be available to serve buyers. The platform is in English for the pilot event, with the Chinese-language interface and other enhanced features slated for release next year.

    Trade buyer registration has commenced and will remain open until 29 October. A strict validation process is in place to ensure that only qualified and motivated buyers gain access to the virtual show, enhancing participants’ chances of networking success. Thousands of buyers and more than 800 jewellery suppliers are anticipated to participate in the pilot programme.

    The result of a strategic cooperation between the world’s biggest jewellery fairs organiser and the leading technology provider in the jewellery supply chain, J&G Digital World serves as a digital extension of Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong (JGW) 2020 and is focused on capturing the real value of in-person events in a virtual setting. The Informa Markets Jewellery – Atelier collaboration will further gain momentum in 2021 with the launch of four more digital events in 2021, each with their own salient features and unique benefits for exhibitors and buyers.

    “As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and the outlook for physical international trade shows remains uncertain, Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong 2020, the world’s biggest B2B jewellery marketplace, is pivoting to an online format this year through J&G Digital World. This digital event is optimised to spark genuine conversations, facilitate efficient digital product meetings, and ultimately, build business relationships, regardless of time zones and distance,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia.
