REGISTRATION OPENS FOR THE 38TH WDC IN ISRAEL
The official website of the 38th World Diamond Congress has gone live, so participants can now register for the June 19-21 biennial gathering of the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) and the International Diamond Manufacturers Association (IDMA). The three-day event is organized by the Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE).
The congress will take place at the Hilton Hotel in Tel Aviv. The first day of the Congress will feature committee meetings of the WFDB and IDMA, a tour of the Israel Diamond Exchange and a cocktail event. The official opening of the Congress will take place on June 20 with a keynote speech and guest speaker, separate WFDB and IDMA working sessions and a professional lecture, and a Gala dinner. On June 21, there will be a panel discussion and a professional lecture before concluding with a press conference.
WFDB President Ernie Blom said: “The World Diamond Congress will again serve its crucial function as a forum for our bourse presidents and other exchange representatives to discuss issues that affect our membership. There are many issues to be tackled, and I look forward to extremely interesting and challenging discussions. This Congress will be slightly different, with professional lectures and a joint panel discussion being held. I want to thank the Israel Diamond Exchange, and particularly its President Yoram Dvash, who is also WFDB Vice-President, for creating and leading a professional team that has put together an excellent programme. It is crucial that our annual meetings, both the Congress and the Presidents Meeting, feature innovative features to bring added content and value”.
