The Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) has postponed its International Diamond Week due to Israel’s conflict with Gaza.
The fourth-annual event was scheduled to take place September 1–4 in Ramat Gan.
“In view of the recent events in our region, the board of the Israel Diamond Exchange decided to postpone the International Diamond Week…for several weeks,” said IDE president Shmuel Schnitzer in a statement. “Of course, it is unfortunate that our endeavor to create a unique trading platform for international diamond dealers and buyers had to be postponed, but I am confident that we will be successful in the near future. We all look forward to holding the International Diamond Week at a time that we can all concentrate on what we do best—conducting our diamond businesses,” Schnitzer added.
IDE general manager Moti Besser added that registered buyers and guests of honor have all been notified of the postponement. “Naturally, we will keep the industry posted with the possible future dates for the International Diamond Week,” he said.
