UBM Expects High Turnout at Inaugural Singapore Jewellery Fair
Singapore-based UBM Asia Trade Fairs Pte Ltd has confirmed the attendance of more than 176 exhibitors from 25 countries and regions in the inaugural edition of the Singapore Jewellery & Gem Fair. The fair will run from 12th to 15th October 2013 at the Marina Bay Sands’ Expo and Convention Center.
The Singapore Jewellery & Gem Fair is supported by the Singapore Jewellers Association and Diamond Exchange of Singapore among other associations. International exhibitors who have confirmed participation include those originating from Belgium, Germany, Japan, Italy, Switzerland, the U.K. and U.S.
Paul Wan, managing director of UBM Asia Trade Fairs, said, “Singapore is also home to 91,200 high-net-worth individuals … We observe that wealthy Asians have moved away from traditional investments towards ‘passion investments’ such as jewellery. We already have the world’s largest fine jewellery show in Hong Kong and hope to replicate its success in Singapore.”
