“We’re excited to bring this new format to our attendees and leverage the introduction of a
virtual component to provide a productive and unique industry event,” said Libby Brown,
executive director of the Atlanta Jewelry Show. “We’d love to see you at the event, so we’re
implementing a number of measures in order to reduce contact and ensure distance.

“However, we understand there are several factors that may prevent you from joining us in person. Your health and safety is absolutely paramount, which has sparked a renewed commitment to not
only providing attendees a successful event, but also a safe place to connect and move our industry forward.”

The AJS “Safety Shines” initiative is a multi-tier approach to delivering a safe and comfortable experience.

“We appreciate the creative thinking of the Atlanta Jewelry Show to keep this important industry
event going,” said Bill Warren, owner of Gold Mine Fine Jewelry & Gifts. “We look forward to seeing our vendor partners and friends. “This show is always an excellent place to connect buyers and sellers, and discuss opportunities moving forward.”

Registration for October 2020 AJS is open now. For more information, click here.

The show’s official sponsor and producer, the Southern Jewelry Travelers Association, is the nation’s oldest association for independent jewelry representatives.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
