The Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) and Israeli Diamond Institute (IDI) are joining forces to host the first ever Online Diamond Trade Show from March 30 to April 4.
The 'virus-free trade show' will take place on the Virtual Diamond Boutique trade platform.
"Due to the coronavirus, several trade fairs and buying opportunities this year have already been cancelled," writes the AWDC. "This is why AWDC and IDI decided to join forces and organize a unique event that enables you to buy and sell diamonds from the comfort of your own office."
The goods that will be exhibited are exclusively from recognized Antwerp and Israel traders. It is not possible for traders from other countries to register as an exhibitor, but they are welcome to log in as a buyer. Exhibiting online is free of charge for diamond companies registered in Antwerp or Israel. Visiting is free of charge for diamond and jewelry professionals all over the world.
Exhibitors/sellers may upload a maximum of 300 stones to the platform; they must be natural stones.
The deadline to apply is 23 March 2020.
Sellers may register here.
Buyers may register here.
