HONG KONG, Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Tens of thousands of professional buyers from around the world gathered at the 36th edition of the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair to get a firsthand look at the latest collections and solutions of the most creative and innovative minds in the market, spice up their inventories for the coming peak sales period and build fresh connections with their industry peers.

Widely recognised as the No. 1 fine jewellery event in the world for its unparalleled global reach and a broad yet sharply focused selection of exhibitors, the September Fair brought together 3,730 suppliers from 54 countries and regions -- its highest number of exhibitors to date -- spread across two premier venues.

The week-long fair, which kicked off on September 12, drew 54,142 unique visitors. "Unique visitors" are only counted once regardless of the number of visits they make during the exhibition period.

"The recently concluded September Fair has once again demonstrated its unique position as the most professional and international platform for the gemstone and jewellery industry," according to Celine Lau, Director for Jewellery Fairs at UBM Asia. "One can see the entire world of jewellery at the show, from coloured gemstone suppliers and diamond manufacturers to pearl traders and fine jewellers. We have decision-makers, merchandisers representing major and independent retailers, wholesalers, importers and design houses regularly attending this show. What's more, it's all happening in the global city of Hong Kong, which is the springboard to the Greater China market."

Occupying 135,000 square metres of exhibition space, the fair grouped its displays by product category and was tailored to buyers' purchasing requirements. Diamonds, coloured gemstones and pearls were showcased at the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) while finished jewellery collections, and packaging, tools, equipment and industry-related technologies were presented at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC).
