HONG KONG, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Asia's Jewellery Group (www.jewellerynetasia.com), organiser of the world's number one jewellery fair, announces all visitors with Trade Buyer ID Card can now enjoy free and immediate access to all UBM Asia's jewellery and fashion jewellery & accessories fairs in Mainland China, Germany, India, Japan, Singapore, Turkey, Hong Kong and Taiwan regions, without having to register to visit the fairs.
The Trade Buyer ID project was rolled out in June 2012 to make visiting UBM Asia's jewellery fairs in Hong Kong and Mainland China an easy and enjoyable experience right from the registration step. Due to the overwhelming success of the launch and the positive feedback from jewellery buyers, UBM Asia decided to give holders of Trade Buyer ID direct access to all of its jewellery fairs around the world. Instead of getting an admission badge for each jewellery fair, visitors simply present the Trade Buyer ID Card and walk directly into their chosen fairs. As of today, over 10,000 jewellery buyers from 92 countries and regions have received Trade Buyer ID Cards.
For visitors who have not upgraded their visitor's badge yet, all they need to do is to bring along their identity documents and visit the Trade Buyer ID Card service counter at AsiaWorld-Expo or the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre in person during the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair 2013 to upgrade the card. The Trade Buyer ID Card is valid until December 2015.
"The enhancements we made to the Trade Buyer ID certainly mean more direct and hassle-free access for buyers. This project represents a significant step forward in making the experience of visitors at our fairs more convenient and seamless," said Wolfram Diener, Senior Vice President of UBM Asia Ltd.
Comments from the Jewellery Buyers
Mr Asavin Naetsawan of Saket Inter Co Ltd, an exporter/importer of precious stones from Thailand, commented: "I paid my first visit to the June Fair and was so impressed by the overall arrangement, especially with the Trade Buyer ID. This is an excellent idea and will save me a lot of time as I won't need to register for each UBM Asia's jewellery fair I want to visit."
Mr Shajahan of Gem Mines, a gemstone wholesaler from Malaysia, said: "I've been to the June Fair many times to source diamonds, gemstones and fine jewellery products. Products offered are of high quality and very competitively priced. I like the Trade Buyer ID because of the convenience it brings to visitors like me."
"The Trade Buyer ID concept is excellent and will encourage more trade buyers to visit jewellery fairs organised by UBM Asia. This is my tenth visit to the June Fair; every year I see wider varieties of products to choose from," said Ms Nina A Podgornaya of Trade House Jewellery from Russia.
