RAPAPORT... The Antwerp Diamond Bourse, the Diamantclub of Antwerp and the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC) announced the dates for their third edition of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair. This invitation-only event will be held January 29 through January 31, 2012. Since the program's inception in 2010, the number of exhibitors has doubled to 66, and next year, organizers will extend invitations to jewelry manufacturers and retailers from across Asia and North America, as well as Europe.
A draft agenda for this program has been posted online and organizers will be adding more information in the coming months. The number of invitations will be limited, so those who are interested in attending the event should register soon. Registering for the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair doesn't guarantee a letter of invitation, however.
