(Press Release) MILAN, ITALY — With the 2017 CIBJO Congress set to open in Bangkok, agendas and related documentation for the various sessions and meetings that will take place during the event are now available online.

The schedule of the CIBJO Congress includes a series of meetings of different working groups, called sectors and commissions, each of which focuses on a different sector or field of interest in the jewelry industry. The digital binder includes the agendas and documentation related to each of their sessions, as well as those sessions that encompass the entire CIBJO membership.

The congress will take place at the Shangri-La Hotel Bangkok Nov. 5-7, with pre-congress meetings starting on Nov. 2. On Nov. 4, the World Ruby Forum will take place at the same venue.

Serving as the official venue for the meeting of the CIBJO Assembly of Delegates, the CIBJO Congress gathers the members of national jewelry and gemstone associations from more than 40 countries and representatives of many of the industry’s most important commercial bodies. During the event, the organization’s Diamond, Coloured Stones, Pearl, Coral, Precious Metals and Gemmological Blue Books, which are the industry’s most widely accepted directories of uniform grading standards and nomenclature, are discussed and updated.

The CIBJO Congress is being hosted by the Department of International Trade Promotion (DITP) and the Gem and Jewellery Institute of Thailand (GIT), both of which fall under the jurisdiction of the Thai Ministry of Commerce.

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.
