Hotel and Visitor General Info



The Jewellex Africa Trade Fair attracts exhibitors from all over the world, including exhibitors from Europe, USA, the East and the SADC countries for 3 days in October. This is the time when new merchandise lines and the most exclusive and extensive product ranges of watches, clocks, fine jewellery, pearls and precious stones, jewellery packaging, machinery, accessories and services available are offered to the local and international retail jewellery industry.

It is our aim to become the ‘Jewellery Trading Hub of Africa’, and as such, the fair will concentrate its efforts on including more participation by African countries. As these states are on our door step, we would like to invite them to share in an opportunity of doing business, not only with South Africa, but with international countries.

Jewellex is the ultimate showcase for the industry where new product ranges are launched – the ideal platform for orders to be placed for the Christmas season.

Jewellex also provides an ideal opportunity to meet industry friends and to network in both business and social environments.
