Press Release – The 7th Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair will open its doors on 31 January 2016, offering trade visitors the largest choice of cut loose diamonds ever. The Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair has been firmly established on the international trade fair calendar since 2010. It is a full-fledged diamond fair – the flagship of three of Antwerp’s diamond bourses. Seven years ago, a few of the younger Antwerp diamond dealers launched an innovative concept: a ‘niche’ fair, dedicated solely to loose polished diamonds. “The concept of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair proved an immediate and brilliant success,” said Raphaël Rubin, executive director of the Antwerp Diamond Bourse. All diamond-related services needed by buyers and sellers alike are provided on site: banks, gem labs, logistics, security providers, shippers and insurers.
The Antwerp Diamond Fair is a 21st century exchange platform which draws its expertise from centuries-old tradition. It is committed to the future thanks to its research for excellence, ethics for sustainable investments. The Antwerp Diamond Fair is also the opportunity to visit gem labs, attend the educational programs, meet with colleagues and partners from various sectors of the industry and feel the market. The Fair says it will offer the world’s most competitive pricing, the diamond industry’s 100 top firms exhibiting, and the biggest concentration of stones ever, from D Flawless to SI diamonds and natural fancy color diamonds.
