UBM Asia Launches Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair

-- To be Held 15-18 November 2013 in Taipei

TAIPEI, Taiwan, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For many years Taiwan has had a strong jewellery manufacturing and processing industry that exports high quality products around the world. In recent years, the surge in tourists from Mainland China has fueled a rapid expansion of the domestic market. Chinese tourists are avid buyers of coral, diamond and jadeite jewellery, and this in turn has created strong demand from Taiwan's jewellery manufacturers for loose stones, mountings and materials, and from retailers for finished jewellery.

On the back of this expansion in the market there have been calls from within the industry to hold an international, professional jewellery exhibition in Taiwan. Responding to this demand, UBM Asia and the Taiwan Jewelry Industry Association have joined forces, supported by the Taipei Jewelers' Association, to launch the first Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair which will be held 15-18 November 2013 at the Taipei World Trade Center.

The Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair, a high-end, professional jewellery event that aims to provide an opportunity for international jewellery suppliers to meet with local buyers, as well as to serve as a platform for the domestic jewellery industry to do business. The timing of the exhibition has been chosen because November is the time of year when jewellery retailers in Taiwan purchase inventory ahead of the busy Christmas, New Year, Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day jewellery buying season.

Christopher Eve, Senior Vice President of UBM Asia Ltd., commented: "We received strong requests from within the Taiwan jewellery industry, as well as from international suppliers of jewellery products, for us to hold a professional jewellery event in Taiwan. We are delighted to be working closely with the Taiwan Jewelry Industry Association on this exciting new launch."

Mr. Hsin Tsai Hsiao, Chairman of the Taiwan Jewelry Industry Association, co-organiser of the Fair said: "We are very glad to work with UBM Asia, the world-class jewellery fair organizer, to launch this brand-new event in Taiwan.  I am sure not only local and international exhibitors will benefit from the fair, but also visitors, creating a real win-win situation for all parties."

Mr. Wen Ching Lee, Chairman of the Taipei Jewelers' Association, supporter of the Fair said: "Taiwan has long lacked a B2B jewellery fair.  The launch of the Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair will help serve our members' sourcing demand and upgrade the Taiwan jewellery industry.  Our members and I are very much looking forward to it."

The venue chosen for the Taiwan Jewellery & Gem Fair is the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall 3, located in adjacent to the stunning Taipei 101 Tower, the Grand Hyatt Taipei Hotel and situated in the bustling Xinyi commercial district of central Taipei.
