寰亚盛会 | 六月香港珠宝首饰展览会
环球盛事 | 九月香港珠宝首饰展览会

Jewellery & Gem WORLD (JGW) is temporarily relocating from Hong Kong to Singapore this September to stage Asia’s biggest and most significant B2B sourcing fair of the year – JGW Singapore. This bold and strategic move aims to make the show venue more accessible to international suppliers and buyers clamouring for the in-person show experience. The venue change is a one-off special arrangement applicable only in 2022. JGW Singapore will be held from 27 to 30 September at Singapore EXPO. Find out more about JGW Singapore here.

Prior to JGW Singapore, Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong Special Edition will take place on 16 – 19 September 2022 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre. Open to B2B buyers and jewellery lovers, the special-edition fair is expected to draw China-based visitors once cross-border travel restrictions are lifted. To extend the content and energy of both events beyond the show floor, digital elements, such as livestreaming sessions targeting Greater China and international audiences, will be incorporated into their programming.
