The organisers of BrilliAnt – the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair – the Antwerp Diamond Bourse, the Diamond Club of Antwerp and the Antwerp Diamond Kring – emphasize that there is only one annual edition of the fair.
The unique character of the fair, its exclusive location in the heart of the Antwerp Diamond Quarter, and its unmatched services and security measures cannot not be emulated anywhere else, or by anyone else, for that matter” says Ya’akov Almor, the fair’s long-time communications director.
BrilliAnt is traditionally held during the last week of January, and is a fixed landmark on the international trade fair calendar.”
BrilliAnt – the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair is a joint initiative of the Antwerp Diamond Bourse, the Diamond Club of Antwerp and the Antwerp Diamond Kring, and is powered by the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC).

Wat kost een lucifer en wat kost een diamant?

De onderwerpen lucifers en diamanten staan centraal. Van mega goedkoop tot extreem duur: de lucifer versus de diamant. Diamonds are a girls best friend, we voelen ons als eksters aangetrokken tot dit soms onbetaalbare glimmertje. Maar wat is een diamant nu eigenlijk echt waard? En de lucifer; bij far een van de meeste goedkope producten in de winkel. Hoe goedkoop is dit goedkope houtje eigenlijk?

BrilliAnt®, the 8th edition of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair, goes international

BrilliAnt®, the 8th edition of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair, goes international,

 

The Antwerp Diamond Bourse, The Antwerp Diamond Club, The Antwerp Diamond Kring and the AWDC are pleased to announce that BrilliAnt®, the 8th edition of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair (January 29-31, 2017), is opening its doors to international exhibitors.

The Diamond Kring’s beautiful trading hall, located at the heart of Antwerp, will host foreign exhibitors (not based in Antwerp) for the first time.

 

“The diamond trade is a global market”, says Thierry Polakiewicz, member of the Fair Organizing Committee. Most diamonds pass through Antwerp two times: first as rough, and then as polished stones.

The biggest diamond firms in the world are headquartered in the diamond district, making it the ultimate platform, where diamond dealers, polished diamond wholesalers and the jewelry market meet each other.

 

“As international diamond center, it is only natural that our annual trade fair welcomes exhibitors from the world over. The choice of stones will be even larger and the offering more competitive; this makes it more likely that the Fair will satisfy jewelers’ demands”, said Polakiewicz.

 

Applications to exhibit in the International Pavilion of BrilliAnt at the January 2017 edition will be treated on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

“We will accept companies of repute whose owners are members of any of the 30 bourses affiliated with the World Federation of Diamond Bourses. This is an opportunity for companies operating in niche markets to increase their visibility in Antwerp”, Polakiewicz concluded.

 

The Fair organizers will assist non-European/overseas diamond firms in merchandise import and export formalities.

 

The Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair is powered by the Antwerp World Diamond Centre.
