The international jewellery trade has given the Jewellery World Awards a positive welcome in its first edition, the 2021 Jewellery World Awards (JWA) recently welcomed a record-breaking 151 registrants from 34 countries and regions across six continents.
Aside from attracting companies and individuals from Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South Americas, the 2021 JWA also further expanded its footprint by welcoming registrants from 13 countries and regions for the first time. These include Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, France, Iran, Macau, Madagascar, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Sweden.
“With the launch of the new brand under JWA, we have met our objective in reaching out to more corners of the world with this award platform. We will continue to promote the positive values and best business practices of the trade without being limited by geographical boundaries, company size or nature of business,” says Letitia Chow, Chairperson & Founder of JWA at Informa Markets Jewellery.
Helmed by Informa Markets Jewellery, the world’s largest B2B jewellery fairs organiser, JWA has upheld the core values of innovation, excellence, best business practices and outstanding leadership since its inception in 2012. Its 10th edition also received tremendous support from the global industry, especially after it broadened its scope to cater to more members of the jewellery and gemstone community worldwide.
Honourees of JWA 2021 will be announced online on 26 October 2021 (Tuesday), followed by the first of a 3-session webinar series themed “Leading Through Change & Uncertainty” where business leaders and industry experts will gather to share their insights. The webinars are part of the Jewellery & Gem Knowledge Community (J&G Knowledge Community) programme, which is a key feature of Informa Markets Jewellery.
The 2021 JWA, which will culminate at the JWA Ceremony and Gala Dinner, is supported by Headline Partners Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Group and Shanghai Diamond Exchange, alongside Honoured Partners KGK Group and Guangdong Land (Shenzhen) Ltd.
