Press Release: The Israeli diamond industry at JCK Las Vegas, which takes place from May 29 to June 1, will once again be among the largest international exhibitor groups, with some 100 Israeli diamond companies participating. According to the Israel Diamond Institute (IDI), the Israel diamond pavilion will this year comprise of 46 exhibitors, with an additional 50 Israeli diamond companies exhibiting at other locations throughout the show.

This year IDI’s groundbreaking “Find Your Diamond” search system will be expanded at the show. IDI will provide "Find Your Diamond" stations in three separate locations. One will be strategically located in the "First Look" area right at the entrance to the show. Another will be placed in the heart of the Diamond Plaza in the Israel diamond pavilion at booth B5653. A third will be located in the IDI-sponsored diamond plaza lounge.

The "Find Your Diamond" proprietary system, which enables buyers to search the inventory of all Israeli exhibitors at the show, was developed by IDI software engineers especially for use at trade shows. First launched at Hong Kong in 2013, the software has been revised and improved to meet the precise needs of both buyers and exhibitors.

Managing director Eli Avidar said, “The 'Find Your Diamond' system, which we have strategically placed at the show entrance and the diamond plaza, gives us a tremendous advantage. While the software is user-friendly, we’ve staffed each terminal to ensure that buyers get the best results.”

The U.S. is Israel’s leading market for polished diamonds; last year, close to 40 percent of Israel’s net polished diamond exports of $6.3 billion went to the U.S.  market, a total of $2.4 billion. Israel is also the largest supplier of polished diamonds to the U.S.  

IDI's chairman, Moti Ganz, said, “We’re optimistic about the JCK Las Vegas show this year. The good news is that the U.S. market is doing well and the demand for diamonds is growing. The United States is our largest market for polished diamonds. We supply almost half of all diamonds sold there and we are working hard to maintain that position,” he said.
