Israeli Diamond Industry at Basel

The Israeli Diamond Industry is planning to have 18 Israeli diamond exporters participating at BASELWORLD 2009, being held March 26 to April 2.

In addition, the Israel Diamond Institute Group of Companies will once again be located in Hall 3.1, NO1. The Israeli diamond companies will exhibit for the most part in Hall 3, where the loose diamond category is concentrated.

As in previous years IDI will host its press conference, but this time it will be a press lunch instead of breakfast. Eli Avidar, IDI managing director, will unveil its new strategic marketing campaign, aimed at supporting the Israeli Diamond Industry’s international trading partners. In addition, the event will feature guest speaker John Peters, Jewelry.com chief operating officer, who will speak about the power of the Internet in marketing diamonds and jewelry. The lunch will take place from  noon till 1:30 p.m. on March 27 at the Basel Convention Center, in the Osaka – Samarkand Congress Room.

An online mini-site, which can be accessed through the IDI Portal site enables buyers to access the Israeli exhibitors virtually before the show. The mini-site includes contact details of all Israeli exhibitors, as well as a link to the Web site of each company.
