The 7th International Jewellery Kobe (IJK) show was held May 15-17, 2003 at the Kobe International Exhibition Hall, Kobe, Japan. The show drew 421 exhibiting companies from 17 countries and regions, and 13,029 visitors from Japan and other parts of the world.
The show floor was divided into special exhibit corners such as “World Pearl Area,” and “Jewellery Related Products Corner” for machinery, tools, and management tools.
The Buying Incentive Point Coupon System was again implemented. Under this system, visitors who buy from exhibitors participating in the program receive one point for every 10,000 Japanese yen worth of purchases or orders. Visitors can then exchange the accumulated points for gifts.
The 2004 edition of IJK will be held May 13-15 at the Kobe International Exhibition Hall. For information, visit www.reedexpo.co.jp/ijk. For information on the International Jewellery Tokyo 2004 show, slated for Jan. 21-24, visit www.reedexpo.co.jp/ijt.
