The 13th edition of the China International Gold, Jewellery & Gem Fair – Shenzhen will be held from 13 - 16 Jan 2015 at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Center. Launched in 2003, the Shenzhen Fair quickly emerged as a premiere jewellery event where participants could buy and sell jewellery, diamonds, gemstones, pearls and other jewellery-related merchandise as well as expand their networks and update themselves with the latest market intelligence.
Shenzhen - The Jewellery Powerhouse of China
Shenzhen and the surrounding areas are home to around 2,000 jewellery manufacturers and produce more than 70 percent of the jewellery made in mainland China. In just 20 years, Shenzhen has developed into the most important jewellery processing and production centre. It is also the main wholesale market for jewellery in China.
China - A promising market for the international jewellery trade
China has bypassed Japan as the world's second biggest luxury goods market after the US.
China is the world’s second-largest gold consuming country.
China is the world's largest platinum jewellery market, accounting for 50% of the total world consumption.
According to the National Bureau of Statistics of China, the total retail sales of gold, silver and jewellery in China reached RMB 220.9 billion in 2012.
Spring - Best time to source
The Shenzhen Fair’s timing makes it ideal for traders to replenish inventory after Christmas and the Chinese spring festival. It’s thus not surprising that every year, thousands of international jewellers flock to the fair to just do that.
