UBM Plans New Gem Stone Exhibition in Hong Kong
UBM Asia, a subsidiary of UBM plc, will launch a new trade show, Mineral & Gem Asia, next year. Supported by The Munich Show, the inaugural edition of Mineral & Gem Asia will run from 27th to 30th June at the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE) in Hong Kong.
Exhibitor products at the four-day show will cover a range of rough and polished gemstones, fossils, decorative and ancient stones, art pieces and various mineral products. A special preview of the show was held in conjunction with this year’s June Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre(HKCEC).
According to UBM Asia, the show aims to attract suppliers and buyers across a variety of fields including geology, mineralogy, architecture, interior design, art gallery, museum, and loose gem traders.
Wolfram Diener, senior vice president of UBM Asia, commented, “We feel that the time is ripe for a new truly international event in Asia exclusively on minerals, fossils, rough gemstones and decorative stones. In Europe, there is The Munich Show, and in the U.S., there’s the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show. We will launch what’s destined to be one of the premier mineral and gemstone shows in the region – Mineral & Gem Asia in June next year.”
