Celine Lau, the veteran manager of the Hong Kong Gem and
Jewellery Fairs of June and September, responded to a letter sent earlier on
August 21st by the Gem & Jewellery Export Promotion Council (GJEPC),
the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) and the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI),
asking Lau to postpone the show.
In her letter, Lau stated that there are positive signs indicating that the situation is cooling down, and that the show will be held as planned.
“We have not received demands for cancellation as stated in your letter. Instead, what we have been getting are several calls from exhibitors inquiring about the possibility of securing better booth locations in case of any cancellations, and inquiries for participation. Rumors about the fair’s alleged cancellation / postponement have in fact drawn more active inquiries on the show’s exhibitor profile and contents.,” Lau wrote.
