Running through March 16, the event is the largest of its kind in the Baltic states, attracting about 220 exhibitors from some 30 countries and a high number of visitors from around the world.

According to the organizers, over half a thousand VIP buyers such as wholesalers, museums, collectors, raw material suppliers and customers, are expected to pay a visit to the show -- many from China.

With big groups of VIP buyers from China, the show sees a lot of products which are favorite to Chinese customers such as various sizes of hand strings, Buddha beads, pendants and so on.
