Business prospects abound at the Antwerp Diamond pavilion. Organised by the Antwerp World Diamond Center (AWDC) at the September Fair, the pavilion is hosting 74 companies this year.
“By grouping Antwerp diamond companies in one pavilion, we bring to Hong Kong the best that Antwerp has to offer,” AWDC said. “We represent diamantaires with a diverse range of goods who can efficiently serve worldwide jewellers, manufacturers and wholesalers.”
According to AWDC, Antwerp has retained its edge as the leading diamond trading hub in the world, thanks to its polishers and traders who are masters in their craft.
“This is why 86 percent of all rough diamonds and 50 percent of all polished diamonds are traded in Antwerp,” added the centre.
