AGTA GemFair Denver Dates Announced

The event is set for Sept. 8-11




(PRESS RELEASE) DALLAS, TX — The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) announced the dates for the 2022 AGTA GemFair Denver, which will be held September 8 – 11, 2022 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. AGTA GemFair Denver will be an integral part of Sparkle & Joy, a section of the HardRock Summit (HRS) dedicated to fine gemstones, fine jewelry, and extraordinary gemstone objects.

“Our first AGTA GemFair Denver show, in 2021, was a great show,” said Douglas K. Hucker, AGTA CEO. “It came at the perfect time of the year for retailers to stock up for their holiday sales, and the synergy between GemFair and the HRS shows makes it a natural fit for AGTA exhibitors.” The 2022 HardRock Summit is moving all its pavilions under one roof this year; Sparkle & Joy, AGTA GemFair Denver, Evolution (minerals and fossils) and the Denver Gem & Mineral Show will exhibit at the Colorado Convention Center.

The HRS staff will be at the AGTA GemFair Tucson show and available to meet with interested exhibitors and attendees. The dates for the 2022 AGTA GemFair Tucson are February 1 – 6, 2022 at the Tucson Convention Center. For more information regarding AGTA and AGTA GemFair Denver, visit

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
