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.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
