Organizer UBM Asia is expecting the four-day event to welcome roughly 15,000 visitors and around 300 local and overseas exhibitors from 13 countries, including Australia, Mainland China, Finland, Germany, Italy, Korea, Poland, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Taiwan Region.

As seen in its recent editions, the Shenzhen Jewellery Fair has embarked on structural and conceptual revamp that enhanced its appeal and widened market opportunities.

"There are plenty of reasons for this shift, but the most logical one is that innovative trade shows like ours will remain a tremendous source of growth not only for us but for our participants in the future. Our focus remains pushing boundaries to offer more value and create more opportunities for exhibitors and buyers," says Teddy Tan, Event Director of Shenzhen Jewellery Fair.

Mr. Tan couldn't emphasize more the valuable opportunity that trade-show attendance offers industry stakeholders. Aside from the main goal of locking in orders, a well-oiled trade event such as the Shenzhen Jewellery Fair offers a stage for increasing brand awareness to a global audience, gaining market feedback on one's products, and top-level networking with some of industry's most important decision makers.

"Armed with a right attitude and strategy, participating in a trade show like the Shenzhen Jewellery Fair is a very profitable exercise," says Mr. Tan.

Brand Village

Mr. Tan adds that segmenting the Shenzhen Jewellery Fair into exciting thematic clusters helps enhance the trade show experience for participants. One of these is groupings is Brand Village, which showcases new branding and product series, breakthrough concepts in jewellery materials and manufacturing technologies as well as retail strategies. 

"Brand Village is bound to inspire jewellery traders to transform and upgrade their own brands and products through the inspiring ideas presented," he says.

For instance, exhibitor Chongqing Chow Tai Fook Xinzhan Jewellery Co Ltd will share its retail strategy of opening "Era" stores in counties and county-level cities in mainland China.

China Jewellery Market Summit

Forums and panel discussions featuring a high-profile speaking faculty from leading jewellery companies and fashion partners are a major draw at the Shenzhen Jewellery Fair. At this year's edition, a total of 15 forums and seminars will be held, featuring timely topics that fit today's digital age and advancements. On top of the agenda are discussions on intellectual property (IP), social media marketing and corporate social responsibility:

  • When Jewellery Meets IP - Jewellery manufacturers can create a new stream of revenue by creating licensed characters of a movie franchise or literary work, if done properly. Representatives from the Licensing Pavilion will share their point of view and experiences on how to seize business opportunities in licensing popular IPs.
  • 5G New Era to the Jewellery Industry, Opportunity on Live Broadcast Short Video and Social Media Marketing - Tapping on the popularity of live broadcasting through online platforms in China, this forum is devoted to knowledge-sharing using social media and new media marketing. Helpful hints from an exciting speaker lineup will inspire others to try this innovative channel in jewellery brand promotion.
    Marketing strategies implemented through various forms of "new media" - those that rely on computers for redistribution - are the centerpiece of a new segment in the China Jewellery Market Summit, the segment will discuss popular live streaming and e-commerce platforms in China, and how to harness them in jewellery sales. Visitors could also find out more in the "New media Resources Pavilion" onsite the fair.
  • Case Study: "Everyone can be a designer" - Today's consumers expect companies to become profitable while doing good for society. The "Everyone could be a designer" activity at the fair is a CSR undertaking among UBM Asia, 3D printing technology specialist iiiMark 3D, and Chinese charity Aimier. Under the guidance of a professional jewellery designer, art works by mentally challenged children under the patronage of Aimier were made into jewellery via 3D printing technology. A case study of the program will be discussed at the Summit, in the session: Synergy between Social Public Welfare and Business Value. "Consumers expect companies to do more than turn a profit. Through this activity we want to inspire them to achieve their CSR goals," says Mr Tan.

"Enthusiastic response to the new concepts we've unveiled in the recent editions of the Shenzhen Jewellery Fair was an endorsement that our innovations are right on target. Added to that is the 31% growth in visitor numbers in last year's edition. I am confident we will deliver yet another fruitful event for everyone at this edition," concluded Mr. Tan.
