CARAT+ partners with The Rapaport Group
ANTWERP - 15 March 2017 - The CARAT+ organization is delighted to announce an exclusive media partnership with The Rapaport Group, the leading provider of diamond price and business information.
The Rapaport Group actively supports the profile of CARAT+ by offering coverage of the show through its publications and news service, both online and in print. Rapaport Magazine and the group’s TradeWire email newsletter will also promote the event through advertising.
As part of the partnership, the Rapaport Group’s online trading platform, RapNet, will also provide its Show Listings tool for the event, enabling buyers to find diamonds and suppliers at CARAT+. Exhibitors will be able to upload their diamonds in advance or at the show, making themselves and their diamonds easy to find. For buyers, RapNet Show Listings is free to search so that diamonds and suppliers can be found ahead of time, saving precious time and resources at the show.
“Rapaport is highly supportive of and believes in the vision and efforts of Carat+ to develop the only international trade fair focusing exclusively on diamonds, diamond jewelry and related services,” said John Costello, Publisher at Rapaport. “We look forward to covering Carat+ and giving the show the support and exposure to help build its presence and visibility in the market. The success of Carat+ will help drive growth and offer increased opportunities within the industry, and that is something the sector in general should be cheerleading.”
