(PRESS RELEASE) The Continental Buying Group (CBG) Fall show was originally scheduled for Las Vegas in June, 2020, but was rescheduled twice and set to take place in October 2020 in Orlando.

With the COVID Pandemic continuing around the country, CBG asked its’ members the likelihood of member attendance at the October in-person show.

The results were as follows: 
30% confirmed as attending.; 70% would not feel comfortable attending a show.

Based on the member polling results, the decision was made to cancel the October 2020 Orlando CBG Show in favor of an online Virtual Show that will be held September 22-25.

The Continental Buying Group (CBG) said that it has been working with Bluestar to develop its’ own virtual platform for several months, because of the possibilities ownership of an online platform will offer to the CBG membership.

 To ensure that the platform is extremely easy for our retailers to navigate, our members will have access to the platform prior to the Virtual Show. 

The first CBG Virtual Show is scheduled for September 22-25, 2020. Considering the varying time zones of suppliers and retailers, CBG will be extending the show hours as well.

 Nothing will ever take the place of in person interactions, but in consideration of everyone’s health and safety, it was imperative to invest in our own private virtual platform.

Any questions or comments should be directed to CBG office or email [email protected]

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.”
