“We’re seeing a high volume of transactions, a wide array of goods, diamonds in all colors, shapes and price points, and strong business connections being made between our DDC members and our Israeli friends,” said Reuven Kaufman, president, Diamond Dealers Club. “This tremendous event is all due to the solid relationship we built with our friends from the IDE, whom I’m very grateful for and proud to work with to help move our industry forward.”
IDE President Shmuel Schnitzer, is thrilled with the show’s progress thus far and noted the peak holiday season sales opportunities available at the show. “Last year’s Israel Diamond Week was busy, but I see even more business being conducted on the trading floor this year. There’s stronger attendance, and a lot more outsiders are participating this time around, which is very positive.”
Israel Diamond Week exhibitors are taking advantage of this prime opportunity and unique venue to do business. Chaim Lazarus, director of Lili Diamonds said, “Any event that can be created for people to meet and interact with each other in a platform like this for retailers and buyers is wonderful for our industry.”
Samuel Namdar, president of Namdar, Inc., noted that Israel Diamond Week has a good impact on business from the supplier end and the sales end. “The nicest thing about these shows at the DDC is that I’m one floor below. Usually we have to travel far to participate in other shows. We can’t be any closer than this!”
