The large pearl and gem show put together by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council is just around the corner once again, this time with a twist! This year the council is introducing a new concept called "Two Shows Two Venues." The first show (the one that interests us) will be held at the Asia World-Expo and will feature loose gems and pearls. The second show features finished jewelry and will be held at the main exhibition center. The shows combined expect to attract more than 40,000 visitors from nearly 50 countries.
Hisano and I will be leaving for Hong Kong next week and Lynsey from Customer Support will be joining us - it's her first trip to Asia and she's pretty excited. Our pearl buying team is growing!
As always, if there are any special requests from the show, please feel free to email me or anyone on the team. We would be happy to search for that special pearl or strand.
