SENIOR DELEGATION FROM CHOW TAI FOOK TO ATTEND ISRAEL’S INTERNATIONAL DIAMOND WEEK
Chow Tai Fook, the largest jewelry brand in China and one of Asia’s leading jewelers, will be sending a delegation of executives to the International Diamond Week in Israel (IDWI), February 13 – 16, 2017. This is the second time that a senior contingent from Chow Tai Fook has attended this event.
Chow Tai Fook has over 2,000 points of sale in Greater China, Malaysia and Singapore. Founded over 80 years ago, the company employs a vertically integrated business model from raw materials procurement to retail sales. Members of the executive team Managing Director Kent Wong, Executive Director Bobby Liu and Executive Director Peter Suen will represent the company at the event.
Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) President Yoram Dvash said, “We are very excited to again welcome senior representatives of Chow Tai Fook, which is such a significant factor in Asia, one of our key export markets. Asia represents over one-third of all of our polished diamond sales, and our presence there has grown steadily over the past decade. The participation of Chow Tai Fook in our showcase event once again underscores the strength of our ties to the diamond and jewelry industry in Asia, especially in Hong Kong and China.”
While at the IDWI, the Chow Tai Fook representatives will meet with leading members of the Israeli Diamond Industry for a discussion of recent trends in the Asian jewelry market and directions for the future.
This year’s International Diamond Week will offer a huge variety of goods by hundreds of Israeli and international exhibitors. In addition, multiple international tenders of rough and polished diamonds will be held during the week. This year IDWI will also offer a rich social program including free sightseeing to Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. As in the past buyers are being offered free accommodations for three nights in nearby hotels. The event is expected to attract several hundred more buyers than before.
