Dear visitor, exhibitor and partner,
For the past two years, Easyfairs and the CARAT+ team have been investing hard work, time and energy to create and develop a unique diamond-centered event in Antwerp. With the introduction of a number of new exhibitors, new concepts and a dedicated focus on attracting additional visitors, we were looking forward to the third edition of the event, scheduled for February 10-12, 2019.
However, being confronted with declining commitment of buyers and sellers as exhibitor or visitor, we concluded that it would be difficult to achieve the high-quality standards we impose on ourselves while meeting the expectations of our visitors and exhibitors for an event like CARAT+.
Therefore, and after due consideration, we have decided to postpone the 2019 edition of CARAT+ and to concentrate instead on working with the diamond trading community on how to refine and improve the format of our diamond-centered event.
In the meantime, we would like to thank you for your support during the first two editions of CARAT+ and look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.
