RAPAPORT... The International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA)  appointed Dirk Blommaert to the position of member services manager in a consulting capacity. Blommaert's role is designed to help better communicate ICA's services and resources to members and the larger precious colored gemstone industry. 

Blommaert will oversee the group's trade show pavilions, marketing and sales, the ICA International Congress,  tours to gem localities, advertising and marketing, and  will act as an industry liaison, create networking opportunities and coordinate member services. 

Based in Belgium, Blommaert joins ICA following a successful history with a number of industry groups, including the Belgian High Diamond Council (HRD), the Basel show, International Jewellery Dubai, the Hong Kong Trade Development Council and, most recently, the Panama Diamond Exchange.

ICA's president, Benjamin Hackman, felt confident that members would benefit greatly from the expertise Blommaert will bring to the organization.
