Glamour, glitz, Belgian cuisine and champagne to top off first day of CARAT+ at evening soirée

Participants in the CARAT+ diamond and diamond jewellery trade show at Antwerp Expo will have the opportunity to let their hair down, relax and have fun at the end of the first day of the fair on May 7, during an evening event that been aptly called CARAT+ Night.

For the CARAT+ organizers, the primary function of the soirée is to enable participants to wind down at the close of what certainly will be a busy day, to partake of some of Belgium’s world-class cuisine, and to mix and mingle with a glass of Champagne Pommery in hand.

Thanks to our partners and sponsors

The invitation-only CARAT+ Night, which will kick off at Antwerp Expo at 6:30 PM on May 7, is being hosted by the trade fair’s partners: ABN Amro, the City of Antwerp, Brinks, the Driesassur insurance brokerage company, the International Gemological Institute (IGI) and Porsche Center Antwerp. Exhibition stands will remain open during the celebration.

Casino Royal Bond Girl is guest of honor at the CARAT+ Night

As one would expect from a diamond and diamond jewellery show, glamour and glitz will also be present in abundance, spotlighted by the red-carpet entry into CARAT+ of Caterina Murino, a star of the 2006 James Bond thriller Casino Royale and a member of the exclusive Bond Girl sorority.

CARAT+ support Graff's FACET Foundation

Participants will also be able to leaf through copies of the beautifully produced coffee table book that tells the story of the famed diamond manufacturer and retailer, Graff Diamonds. CARAT+ is a supporter of Graff’s FACET Foundation, which develops and sustains programmes enriching the quality of life of children in Sub-Saharan Africa.

It will be a great evening you can't miss! Please note that registration is mandatory.
