The fourth Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair has opened at the Antwerp Diamond Bourse and the Diamond Club of Antwerp.
Organizers say that 83 companies are exhibiting at the show.
"We knew that this year's fair would be busy since we have invited close to 300 buyers," says Raphael Rubin, a senior member of the ADTF Organizing Committee.
The delegations of buyers come from Greater China, Europe, the Middle East, and other regions he said.
Rubin said that exhibitors were pleased with the show's format which gives them access to many potential suppliers in a relatively short space of time which enables them to return to their business operations after three days.
The Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair closes on January 30.
