The Israel Diamond Exchange (IDE) has announced that the next International Diamond Week in Israel (IDWI) will be held on February 5 – 7, 2018. This popular event has become a staple on the global diamond calendar, and attracts hundreds of international buyers every year.


IDWI has established a reputation as a prime trading opportunity for diamond dealers, due to the large quantity and variety of goods on offer and the minimal participation costs. The next IDWI will again be held in a shorter format, with trading taking place on the bourse floor from Monday to Wednesday, leaving Thursday as an optional day for individual meetings.


IDE President Yoram Dvash said that he expected the next IDWI to attract even more international buyers than previously. “IDWI has become a very popular event in the diamond world. Last year significantly exceeded our expectations, by the number of buyers and their geographical range. We had buyers from more than 20 countries, many of them first time attendees. We are confident that his year there will be even more,” he stated.


“Last year we added major international rough and polished tenders to coincide with the event and hosted important diamond leaders. This year we’ll have other new features, which we’ll announce later on. Right now Save the Date: February 5 – 7, 2018 in Israel,” Dvash said.
