FREIBURG, Germany, January 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

99 percent of floor space is already booked

Leading representatives of the international jewellery and gemstone industry has expressed the need for an appropriate and commercially focused jewellery sourcing platform in Europe. With the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe, UBM has responded by providing such a platform, at the cross roads of the industry's most important hubs, such as Antwerp, Idar-Oberstein, Pforzheim, or in Switzerland and northern Italy. UBM, one of the world's leading organisers of jewellery fairs will launch the highly anticipated Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe on 1-4 April 2014 at Messe Freiburg.

Antonio Jakubowski, CEO of Vilma GmbH comments "We are expecting the jewellery & Gem Fair Europe to create a shining platform for international and European buyers, sellers and manufacturers. So far this form of framework has been absent in the industry, except on a highly illustrious level and not for the broader jewellery market at an international level. The positioning as the first jewellery sourcing even in Europe, which showcases exhibitors from luxury and mid-level jewellery, was developed to meet these industry's vital demands".

"To date, 400+ exhibitors, from 25 countries and regions have confirmed their participation for the fair. We have already booked 99 percent of the floor space," said Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs, UBM Asia.

Among the exhibitors are names such as Richard Hans Becker GmbH & Co KG, Friedrich Binder, Dily's Collection, Emil Weis KG, Herbert Giloy & Söhne GmbH & Co KG, Gustav O Hahn OHG, Karp Jewellery Mfg HK Ltd., Ph cock sons, Pranda Jewelry Public Co Ltd, RMC Gems HK Co. Ltd., Thien Po Ltd, plus many more.

"Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe is an important platform for sourcing jewellery, combining the entire industry, under one roof, while also learning industry knowledge and current trends," praises Giloy, Herbert & Soehne GmbH & Co. KG. "The concept for the exhibition's location was to establish the event in the three-country triangle of Germany, bordering France and Switzerland. Europe, and especially Germany, has exceptionally high appeal for exhibitors from all over the world, due to its sustained economic power. Germany and this entire region are also internationally renowned for quality of the jewellery produced, quality and innovations of designs and the distinguished craftsmanship."

Michael Thiel, Head of Sales at Giloy, Herbert & Sons, explains, "The training and skill development in Germany and surrounding regions is extremely high, making design, product development and manufacturing in this region internationally recognised. In addition to this, the technical capabilities, precision and qualifications of employees are becoming increasingly important. All of these things have a direct impact on trends, such as sustainability, and making quality jewellery in Germany and Europe unmistakeable. For so long the label 'Made in Europe' or 'Made in Germany' has been held with very high esteem."

"With Jewellery and Gem Fair Europe, held at Messe Freiburg, our hope is to establish a high quality and valuable fixed date to the jewellery industry's calendar. We aim to fill a gap in the market by offering a professional jewellery sourcing platform alongside the experiences of the world renowned Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair," explains Celine Lau. "Freiburg is the ideal location for this show, with its high ease of transport to Freiburg and the fair grounds, and also being located at the heart of Europe."
