JNA Awards 2020 Ceremony goes vırtual

This year, the JNA Awards celebration will span weeks instead of being limited to one
evening. A series of webinars and events featuring Honourees and Sponsor Partners, who
are the movers and shakers of the global trade, will be held starting from September,
culminating with sessions during J&G Digital World’s live days. The virtual event is scheduled
for 27 – 29 October.
The JNA Awards webinars will focus on retail strategies for the new normal, the role of
innovation in an organisation’s “return and recovery” journey and sustainability as a
business strategy. The webinars will form part of the Jewellery & Gem Knowledge
Community (J&G Knowledge Community) programme, which is a key feature of Informa
Markets Jewellery.
Commenting on the JNA Awards’ virtual ceremony, David Bondi, Senior Vice President of
Informa Markets in Asia, said, “It is indeed exciting to celebrate the achievements of the
industry with a global audience. At Informa Markets Jewellery, we provide an effective
platform for the trade regardless of circumstances by leveraging team synergy. This business
culture is also reflected in the jewellery community, which stands together to face the
challenges and capture new opportunities ahead.”
Letitia Chow, Chairperson of the JNA Awards and Director of Business Development –
Jewellery Group at Informa Markets Jewellery, commented, “JNA Awards Honourees have
always demonstrated great perseverance, innovation and adaptability. These characteristics
are even more distinct this year given the current environment, and we are thrilled to
recognise them in a format that allows industry stakeholders from anywhere in the world to
join the celebrations without boundaries.”
Organised by Informa Markets Jewellery since 2012, the JNA Awards promotes the
industry’s sustainable advancement by honouring individuals and companies that have
demonstrated excellence, innovation and best business practices, regardless of the size and
scale of their operations, fields of expertise and the geographical regions they serve.
