AWDC strives to further develop Antwerp as the world diamond centre and to promote the image and reputation of the sector among the general public. These tasks are entrusted to the Diamond Office, which administers the flow of diamonds to and from Antwerp. The foundation offers the sector a wide range of services: marketing campaigns, conferences, trade fairs, economic missions, and so on. AWDC strives to be of assistance to everybody affected by – or simply interested in – the fascinating world of diamonds. Whether you are a professional in the sector, a diamond mining company or a couple looking for the perfect wedding ring, we will do our best to help.
