I’d like to thank you so much for such a fascinating few days and for the wonderful organisation of the trip, I felt very well looked after the whole time and feel very lucky to have been taken to such impressive places! I have made some contacts which I think will be very useful to us and have gained some great knowledge about Antwerp and diamonds which is invaluable and I look forward to sharing this with my colleaguesA truly wonderful experience! I really feel that I have new lifelong friends in Antwerp and hope to visit again soon. The AWDC were awesome hosts, making us feel like important dignitaries.

It was fabulous! We really feel like this trip was the beginning of a long term business relationship with Antwerp diamond vendors. We are a growing business in a fast growing market. We never felt any pressure to buy but we did buy because we saw the value of the relationships. We plan to come back next year either on our own or with a group. First class all the way from planning, travel, logistics, meals, walking tour, business introductions, etc. We have not stopped talking about Antwerp since we returned home. Our excitement about diamonds has returned!

Thank you very much for your hospitality. It was a great pleasure to visit Antwerp, see the industry from the inside and meet all these fantastic people. The organization was at top call level. This was a very fruitful experience, the attention and the caring of the AWDC staff was beyond my expectations. The diamond companies were extremely cooperative and made my trip very successful.
