Israel to Participate in Macau Fair

The Israeli Diamond Industry will participate at the Macau Jewelry and Watch Fair, which will take place for the first time on Jan. 10-13, 2008, at the Cotai Strip Convention and Exhibition Center at the Venetian Macao.

More than 50 Israeli companies will be exhibiting at the show, with 37 companies taking part in the Israel Diamond Pavilion hosted by the Israel Diamond Institute. The show is expected to attract Chinese buyers, and the Israeli participation in this show is due to the great interest of the Israeli Diamond Industry in reaching out to the Chinese market.

IDI will be the official host of the fair’s opening reception on Jan. 10, together with CMP, the show’s organizers. 

Several months ago the Israeli Diamond Industry affirmed China as its top priority and embarked on a multi-pronged strategy to strengthen its ties between the Israeli and Chinese diamond industries. To that end, IDI opened a representative office in Hong Kong IDI Asia Pacific Limited in July, and launched a comprehensive portal site in Chinese, geared to the needs of the Chinese diamond and jewelry industry.
