Registration is now open for the 2013 annual congress of CIBJO, the World Jewellery Confederation. A dedicated 2013 CIBJO Congress website has been launched at http://congress2013.cibjo.org/, and it enables participants to register directly, as well as reserve hotel rooms at preferential congress rates.
The 2013 CIBJO Congress will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel, May 7-9, 2013, with pre-congress meetings beginning on May 5. It will be hosted by the Israel Diamond Institute Group of Companies and will take place at the Dan Panorama Convention Centre.
In addition to the registration and booking module, the CIBJO Congress website includes a preliminary congress programme, information about traveling to Israel, and registration for the complimentary tours of Jerusalem and Jaffa that will be provided to persons accompanying CIBJO Congress delegates.
There are two congress hotels from which to select, the David Intercontinental Tel Aviv and the Dan Panorama Tel Aviv. Both are located on the Tel Aviv seafront and are within short walking distance from the congress venue. Both hotels are offering special rates during the event, and these will be obtained automatically when booking via the congress website.
Serving as the official venue for meetings of the CIBJO Assembly of Delegates, the 2013 CIBJO Congress will gather in Tel Aviv the members of national jewellery and gemstone associations from more than 40 countries and representatives of many of the industry’s most important commercial bodies. The congress also serves as a forum for CIBJO’s professional commissions, and is the venue at which its Diamond, Coloured Stones, Pearl, Precious Metals and Gemmological Blue Books are discussed and updated.
