“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.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
