Leading names unite at JGW Hong Kong’s Master Insights Series and seminar programme

Jewellery & Gem WORLD Hong Kong (JGW) is celebrating its 40th edition this month by hosting a gathering of industry luminaries at Master Insights, a series of panel discussions that shines the spotlight on the recipients of the Extraordinary 40 Awards (E40). Exclusive to JGW’s milestone edition, the E40 Awards is a prestigious tribute that honours 40 individuals who have made a profound impact on the jewellery sector over the past decades and whose transformative journeys are an integral part of the fair’s legacy. “Master Insights offers an unparalleled opportunity for JGW attendees to acquire invaluable perspectives directly from the industry’s foremost leaders. Convening in Hong Kong for the first time since the pandemic, these experts are uniting to share their wealth of experiences and viewpoints on the future of the sector – all under the JGW umbrella. By bringing together this collective wisdom in a comprehensive panel discussion series, Master Insights has firmly established itself as one of the cornerstone events of the year for the global jewellery and gemstone community,” said David Bondi, Senior Vice President of Informa Markets in Asia. Previously known as the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair, JGW is poised for a spectacular comeback, ushering in a host of remarkable milestones. Notably, it will serve as the stage for commemorating its 40th edition and the 40th anniversary of JNA, Informa Markets Jewellery’s flagship trade publication, through the Jewellery World Awards’ (JWA) Extraordinary 40 programme. With a return to its “One Fair, Two Venues” format, JGW will showcase 3,000+ exhibitors from 50+ countries and regions, housed in 40+ group and themed pavilions, including the iconic Fine Gem and Design Pavilions, International Premier Pavilion and CORE – a zone showcasing Hong Kong’s premier jewellery manufacturers. The event will also shine the spotlight on the ruby, the 40th anniversary gemstone, through the Red Radiance project (Booth No. 3M260) – an education programme featuring exhibits, live demonstrations and immersive experiences centred around the “King of Gemstones.” JGW will take place from 18 to 22 September at the AsiaWorld-Expo (AWE), where jewellery materials, including loose diamonds, coloured gemstones and pearls, will be presented, and from 20 to 24 September at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC), where finished jewellery, packaging solutions, tools and equipment, and jewellery industry-related technologies will bunveiled. Online pre-registration for buyers is now open.

On 20 September, from 2pm to 4pm, the session, “From Rough To Brilliant: Charting A Course For An Exciting Future,” will feature a dream line-up of the world’s leaders in diamonds – all gathered in Hong Kong for the first time on one panel.
