(Press Release) ATLANTA, Ga. — Midwestern jewelers are invited to Think Outside the Showcase and travel to the capital of the South for the Atlanta Jewelry Show held March 4-6, 2017. To entice retailers to attend, the Atlanta Jewelry Show’s Experience Atlanta program features a robust amenity package that offers participants the opportunity to generate new business in a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The show’s theme, Think Outside the Showcase, describes the fresh perspectives, new products and business-building seminars to be offered in an environment designed to inspire.

“We want to be the essential jewelry show resource for the Midwest’s independent jewelers. To demonstrate the value of the Atlanta Jewelry Show, we’re inviting qualified retailers to be our guests at the Spring 2017 show,” said Carol Young, executive director, Southern Jewelry Travelers Association (SJTA), producers and managers of the semi-annual show. “Atlanta is a vibrant, easily accessible city, and our venue, the Cobb Galleria Centre, is convenient to great restaurants and shopping. Although our weather can be unpredictable, the average March temperature is 65 degrees, which could be considered a heat wave to some Midwesterners!”


The Experience Atlanta Program includes:

  • Complimentary hotel accommodations for two nights at one of the AJS host hotels.
  • Personalized Concierge services to match retailers with AJS vendors based on product needs, recommend show seminars and offer suggestions for restaurants and Atlanta landmarks to visit, all with the show’s renowned Southern hospitality.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
