The organizers of the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair (ADTF) announced the 2015 dates of this unique by-invitation-only international loose diamond trade show. The sixth edition of the ADTF will open its doors on Sunday, February 1st, and close on Tuesday, February 3. The ADTF’s dates are in sync with those of other prestigious jewellery industry events in the region and thus enable visitors to the ADTF to plan their itineraries effectively.
The ADTF, a joint initiative of the Antwerp Diamond Bourse, the Diamond Club of Antwerp and the Antwerp Diamond Kring exchanges, is held on the bourses’ diamond trading floors which are converted into three elegantly designed exhibition spaces for the event, hosting around 90 of Antwerp’s leading diamond manufacturing and trading firms, displaying a very wide variety of polished diamonds.
“Since its inception in 2010, the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair has evolved into a unique opportunity for jewellery manufacturers, designers and retailers to source their diamonds in the world’s diamond capital,” David Pienica, a founding member of the ADTF organizing committee, stated. “It has also become an important event on the itinerary of many international jewellers and downstream diamond buyers, who, a month or so after the close of the winter holiday season, are making plans for the new year and stocking up on diamonds,” he added.
Pienica also said that the ADTF was looking forward to welcoming many new, first-time visitors to the diamond district in February. “Many jewellers know about Antwerp, and may have done business with Antwerp diamond suppliers. But still, a lot of the world’s leading jewellery manufacturers, designers and retailers have never set foot in Antwerp, let alone discovered the almost unlimited supply and choice of diamonds offered by Antwerp’s diamond business community. The ADTF is a perfect opportunity for visitor to meet with us,” Pienica concluded.
