GemFind is pleased to announce that we have arranged for a FREE 5 days and 4 nights in Antwerp, offered exclusively to our retail jeweler members.  

 

This complimentary visit will include round trip limousine service to the Brussels airport, 4 nights stay at the 5-star Radisson Blu Park Hotel, most meals, and for GemFind retail jeweler members, complimentary VIP seats for a special Diamond Gala Evening dinner event.  This can save a jeweler up to $3,000 on the land portion alone. You will have complete guidance and exclusive access to the floors of the oldest diamond bourses in the world.

 

Our relationship with Howard Pomerantz at the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair has allowed for us to reserve a limited number of sponsored visits in Antwerp at the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair.  (ADTF) There are no required purchases at the diamond fair.  The event is Sunday, January 26 through Tuesday, January 28, 2014.

The Global Ambassador for the World Federation of Diamond Bourses, Howard Pomerantz, said “there will be about 80 global prime diamond manufacturers exhibiting primarily loose diamonds and certain unique diamond jewelry pieces.”  Most firms have offices in the USA and are exhibitors online with GemFind.  Howard can make time for you to have an afternoon of tasting Belgian beers and chocolates with our compliments. Alternatively, watch live grading of diamonds in a secure laboratory, which is rarely allowed for jewelers.

 

The complimentary visit is by invitation only, limited to less than 40 retailers. The USA delegation will meet hundreds of retailers that come from Europe, China, Russia, the Middle East and Europe. It is an opportunity for GemFind retail jeweler members to meet Jewelers from countries all over the world.

 

If you are interested, apply for an invitation by contacting Howard Pomerantz via

  

Please mention that you are responding to the “GemFind” invitation for Antwerp or just place GemFind in the subject line of your email.
