What is IJK?
IJK is Japan's Largest and Best Mid-Year Jewellery Show! A wide range of jewellery from fine jewellery to fashion jewellery as well as a variety of loose stones and strands will be exhibited. Also, related products such as materials and services will gather under one roof. Every year, executives and professional buyers from jewellery retailers, department stores, select shops, etc., visit IJK from all over the world to source. Serious business discussions take place everywhere during 3 show days. In recent years, a surge in overseas buyers especially from nearby Asian countries are adding much buzz to the show.

1. Japanese jewellery market continues to rebound
Japan’s luxury goods market, one of the largest in the world, is growing steadily again, after a long period of global and domestic crisis, and is expected to grow further over the next years thanks to rising consumer confidence and the purchasing power of the younger generations, creating prospects for an increase in spending for luxury goods. Moreover, purchases by inbound tourists have a substantial effect on sales in the luxury goods market, and as the number of tourists is expected to rise in 2018, a boost in the luxury market is expected too.

2. Japan’s economy growth boosts the buying power
Japan’s economy recorded its longest growth streak since its heyday in the late 1980s, after expanding in the last three months of 2017 for an eighth straight quarter, the latest indication that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is succeeding in generating more stable growth. The world’s third-largest economy expanded at an annualized pace of 0.5% in the October-December quarter, but at a much slower pace than a revised 2.2% in the previous three months as the overall contribution to growth from trade weakened.

3. Imported jewellery market in Japan is expanding
According to a new report by McKinsey & Co shared exclusively with BoF, Japanese consumers are now spending 3.6 trillion yen (about $33 billion) each year on luxury goods. Business leaders are also feeling more optimistic, with over half of local luxury executives surveyed by McKinsey viewing Japan, which accounts for as much as 30 to 40 percent of some global brands’ profitability, as a growth engine and profit generator.

4. Tokyo Olympic Games escalate Japan’s economy growth!
The influx of tourists is expected to boost the supply and sales of luxury goods. The number of tourists is expected to increase, with government having an annual target of 40 million tourists visiting Japan by 2020. According to the Japan Tourism Agency, more than 75% of the international tourists visiting Japan are from Asian countries such as South Korea, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Reed Japan’s Solemn Declaration of
1. The reason for not inflating the visitor numbers
Inflating visitor numbers is a misrepresentation of the exhibition’s content, and a fraudulent act toward the exhibitors. Therefore, Reed will not commit such an act.
2. The visitor number counting method
Every visitor is to submit one business card at the visitor registration counter on-site, and will be counted as one visitor based on their business cards no matter how many times he/she re-enters the show.
3. Visitor numbers will be verified by an external party
Once the exhibition is completed, all the business cards submitted at the visitor registration counter will be presented to a certified accountant, who will verify that they are the same number as the number of visitors announced by the organiser. Random checks will be conducted through phone calls to the persons on the business cards to confirm that they had attended the exhibition.
4. Written official announcement of the visitor count
Immediately following the exhibition, the visitor number will be announced alongside the counting method, in written form.
