Of this number, it says 4,280 were leading trade buyers.\r\n\r\nThe leading visiting countries were Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and Brazil.\r\n\r\nWolfram Diener, senior vice president of UBM Asia, said: "The vast majority of our exhibitors and traders view the exhibition as a success.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe are very pleased with the positive feedback from the market and see this as a confirmation that the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe is now listed as an important industry event in the jewellery calendar. At the same time, of course, we are inspired to organise an even higher quality show for 2015.\u201d\r\n\r\nUBM\u2019s statement added: \u201cA specifically favourable measurement of the positive acknowledgement of the fair is the advanced bookings from the exhibitors. The demand is so great that the Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe 2015 will expand into an additional hall at Messe Freiburg.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe next Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe will be held from Sunday 22 March to Wednesday 25 March 2015. The show will begin on a Sunday, to allow smaller regional jewellery businesses to attend more easily.
