Press Release: The Israeli diamond industry, the largest supplier of diamonds to the U.S., will once again have a major presence at the JCK Show in Las Vegas next week. The Israel Diamond Pavilion, hosted by the Israel Diamond Institute Group of Companies (IDI), will feature 32 exhibitors, with an additional 22 Israeli diamond companies exhibiting throughout the show.

The JCK show is especially significant for the Israeli diamond industry, since the U.S. is Israel’s leading market for polished diamonds. Last year Israel sold close to 40 percent of its net polished diamond exports of $5.6 billion to the U.S. market for a total of $2.3 billion.

The Israel Diamond Pavilion will be located in the Diamond Plaza at Booths B3718-B3759 and B3783-B3789. IDI will be represented at stand B3744 within the pavilion.

IDI's chairman, Moti Ganz, said, “We are looking forward to an active show this year. We are confident that there will be a great many buyers at the Israel Diamond Pavilion and that it will be a successful show for the Israeli exhibitors.

“JCK Las Vegas is the most important trade show for the U.S. market. We are pleased to see that this market is showing recovery and that the demand for diamonds is growing. Since we supply almost half of all diamonds sold in the U.S. this is good news for the Israeli diamond industry,” he said

IDI's managing director, Eli Avidar, added that the Israeli industry was especially keen to exhibit at JCK this year and that there is a waiting list of Israeli companies which could not be accommodated due to lack of space. “We are confident that Israel will continue to be the major supplier of diamonds to the U.S. market,” he said.
