Prizes up for grabs at Sydney jewellery fair

The upcoming Sydney jewellery fair promises to have lots of prizes, competitions and promotions in store for retailers attending the show.

The International Jewellery Fair (IJF) runs from Saturday 27 August to Monday 29 August and there are plenty of chances for those in attendance to walk away with bonus goodies.

On top of the thousands of dollars in prizes at stake for jewellers competing in the 2016 Jewellery Design and Manufacturing Championships (JDMC), several exhibitors have also revealed ways visitors can win big.

Below is a brief run-down of what has been lined up.

Supplier competitions

Among the jewellery suppliers holding competitions is bridal jewellery business Abrazi.

As part of celebrations to mark its first anniversary in Australia and New Zealand, Abrazi is offering retailers who purchase one of its collections the chance to enter a prize draw for a romantic night’s accommodation at the QT hotel in Sydney’s CBD.

The winner will be announced at the fair on Monday.

Meanwhile, every time a jeweller spends $500 with Gerrim International, they will receive an entry to win a $1,000 travel voucher to use anywhere in the world. 

Visitors to Julie Sandlau’s stand are encouraged to “have a good snoop” through its ranges and then enter a lucky draw to take home their favourite piece from the Danish brand. One winner will be announced daily at 4pm.

New Zealand-based Kagi – celebrating its 10th anniversary this year – is providing retailers that purchase its new season collection the chance to “win it all back” by going into a prize draw.

A seven-night stay at the five star Astagina Resort in Bali, including upgraded accommodation to a deluxe suite for two people, valued at $2,900, is being offered by Paterson Fine Jewellery.

For every $500 a retailer spends with the supplier, they will earn one ticket to a draw to be held at 2pm on the last day of the fair.

Anyone who spends $1,500 or more with Stones & Silver will receive a ‘show bag’ filled with goodies, including a complimentary bottle of Moët, while those who purchase 200 or more watch batteries from The Battery Man will be entered into a prize draw to win a Seiko watch.

Other competitions

The Gemmological Association of Australia (GAA) is also getting in on the fun by giving away three course vouchers. The winner of the first prize will be awarded $1,000 to put towards either the Diploma of Gemmology, Diploma of Diamond Technology or Practical Diamond Grading course. Second prize is a $500 NSW course voucher and third prize is a voucher to complete the Introduction to Gems and Gemmology course. 

All entrants have to do is fill out an expression of interest form indicating what course/s they would like to take.

Visitors can also put their diagnostic skills to the test by bringing their stones to examine on GAA specialist equipment.

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council will award one lucky visitor with a return flight to Hong Kong to attend the 2017 Hong Kong International Jewellery Show or the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show. The prize includes three nights’ hotel accommodation and retailers who drop a business card at the exhibitor’s stand will go into the running to win.

Above is just a small preview of the special offers and promotions taking place at the fair, which will be held at the Sydney Exhibition Centre @ Glebe Island.
