- direct and convenient contact between the exhibitors and visitors of Asia's largest international jewellery fair, the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Watch Fair before and after the fair

- a powerful user-friendly search engine to find suppliers, products and industry news

"With the growing international jewellery trade and the surging importance of China, both as a production base and a huge consumer market, there is a strong need for a round-the-clock marketing and sourcing platform that caters for both global and China markets. JewelleryNetAsia.com has been serving the industry since 2001, and this new development keeps us ahead on the on-line media needs of such a global industry," said Peter Sutton, President and CEO of CMP Asia, owner of JewelleryNetAsia.com and Jewellery News Asia, and organiser of the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Watch Fair.
The new JewelleryNetAsia.com will be the year-round sourcing channel for the world's professional trade buyers. It is the home of the on-line showrooms of 2,300 plus suppliers who are exhibitors at the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Watch Fair, which attracts over 40,000 visitors every year. The information and products of these suppliers are linked to a well-categorised directory that is easily searchable by company, country, product, key words and brand.
JewelleryNetAsia.com will also support exhibitors and visitors of the September Hong Kong Jewellery & Watch Fair to get the most from their participation. Exhibitors will benefit from increased exposure and timely promotion. The exhibitor list and highlights of exhibits will be prominently placed at the home page of JewelleryNetAsia.com. Exhibitors can make use of their own private administration centre at this site to update the products in their own on-line showroom, at any time and any place in accordance with their sales and marketing plans. Visitors can conveniently plan their visit and on-site schedule by clicking into the site. After previewing the exhibitor list and the exhibits, visitors can make use of the on-line pre-fair appointment-making system to arrange their on-site meeting schedules with those exhibitors that they want to meet. They can also pre-register at JewelleryNetAsia.com to get their admission badges.
"We aim to create real value for our customers and the trade. The new JewelleryNetAsia.com will be extensively promoted to CMP Asia's huge jewellery database and at our jewellery events. We will also provide industry members with information about JewelleryNetAsia.com and its services through our publications. Our web team has been expanded to develop the site and to market it. The new launches on July 1 are just the beginning." Peter Sutton said.
