The Israeli diamond industry is once again planning a significant presence at the Macau Jewellery & Watch Fair, which will be held for the second time Jan. 8-11 at the Cotai Strip Convention and Exhibition Center at the Venetian Macao Hotel.
This year Israeli companies will be exhibiting at the show as independents and as part of the Israel Diamond Pavilion hosted by the Israel Diamond Institute Group of Companies. 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 the Chinese market, IDI said in a statement.
The Israeli diamond industry, led by IDI, has affirmed China as a major priority and has taken many steps to strengthen the ties between the Israeli and Chinese diamond industries. To that end, IDI operates the IDI Asia Pacific office in Hong Kong as well as a portal site in Chinese—www.israelidiamond.co.il , geared to providing up to date information and news for the Chinese diamond and jewelry industry. IDI has also expanded its participation in trade fairs in China to include, in addition to the Macau show, trade shows in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Shenzhen.
