Haute Jewels

Haute Jewels arrives in Hong Kong

After Haute Jewels Geneva here is Haute Jewels Hong Kong. The event organized by Michael Hakimian, CEO of Yoko London, expands and lands on the Asian continent. The first event in the big Chinese city will take place from 18 to 22 September 2024 in the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The formula is the one already successfully tested in Geneva: a selected presence of jewelery brands within a large hotel, in an intimate and exclusive environment for conducting business. At the moment, the complete list of brands that will participate in the event is not yet known, which is on the agenda immediately after Vicenzaoro (6-10 September). The event will be open to buyers of jewelery and watches in the sector and to private VIP customers. And a second appointment is already planned in Hong Kong, scheduled for March 2025.

Haute Jewels Geneva 2024 expands across two locations

Haute Jewels Geneva expands and multiplies.

Then, the event founded and organized by the CEO of Yoko London, Michael Hakimian, attracted other jewelery Maisons. The last 2023 edition at the end of March had risen to 23 brands. And the next one, which will take place from Monday 8 April to Monday 15 April, will expand into two locations: the InterContinental Hotel will be added next to the Fairmont Grand Hotel. Other jewelery companies will therefore be added, increasing capacity by over 50%.

What promises to be a small exclusive fair was born from the need of jewelry companies to present themselves to an audience that no longer has the stage of Baselworld, which ended two years ago, at its disposal. A first taste of Haute Jewels Geneva took place already in 2019, with the first four jewelry brands (they were Yoko London, Crivelli, Sutra and Roberto Coin), while in the two previous years the idea was frozen by the epidemic. Visitors, in the organizers’ program, “will experience an intimate and luxurious environment for jewelry buyers and suppliers to conduct business, a concept that seems even more relevant after the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. With the opportunity to see each other face to face again, it promises to be a dynamic event, which combines the strength, creativity and experience of the participating brands “. Visitor registration is done on the site dedicated to the event.
