The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) earlier this week announced the new dates for the twin trade fairs in Hong Kong: 3-6 August 2020. The HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show 2020 and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show 2020 were previously scheduled to run concurrently from 18 to 21 May, but were postponed following the goverment’s announcement of a quarantine for all travellers arriving from outside China.
The HKTDC announcement reads: The safety of exhibitors and buyers has always been a priority for the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC). With the Compulsory Quarantine of Persons Arriving at Hong Kong from Foreign Places Regulation in place, overseas exhibitors and buyers would have great difficulty joining the HKTDC Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem & Pearl Show 2020 and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show 2020 on 18-21 May as originally scheduled. After consultation with the industry, the HKTDC will further reschedule the twin fairs to 3-6 August 2020 to be held at AsiaWorld-Expo.
