[dropcap cap=T]his month, a quick pitch for The SMART Jewelry Show, which is being held April 24-26 at Chicago’s Navy Pier: [/dropcap]

INSTORE created The SMART Jewelry Show to reach retailers in some of the same ways our magazine does. It’s intimate, friendly and comfortable to navigate. At the same time it has a big-show manufacturer lineup and an educational program that’s second to none.

You’ll find 80 educational sessions (most right on the show floor), a Smart Central exhibit featuring mind-blowing ideas for your store, and over 100 new vendors, including top young designers in our Generation Next pavilion.

You’ll rub elbows with the creators of some of America’s coolest stores and learn their secrets in talk-show style interviews with our analysts.

If you do repair and custom design, you’ll learn to promote your services and build a stronger artistic identity. And don’t miss our exciting live skills competition — The INSTORE Bench Pressure Challenge.

If you go to one trade show this year, The Smart Jewelry Show should be it.

Taking the advice we give you often, here’s the part where we ask for your reference. If you’re a show/mag supporter, could you please do us a favor and …

• Ask your favorite vendors if they’ll be at the show. If they say no, tell them they should be.

• Tell your fellow retailers that you’re going to The SMART Jewelry Show. (Change your Facebook and LinkedIn status to “I’m going to The SMART Jewelry Show. Are you?”)

Wilkerson Testimonials

Gone Fishin’ (Thanks to Wilkerson)

Whether you want to go fishing — or enjoy some of the other good things life has to offer — you can take a cue from Jim Adair and choose Wilkerson to run your retirement sale. After 38 years in business, Adair decided it was time to enjoy some free time. His Missoula, Montana store, Adair Jewelers, will stay in business but without him at the helm. It was the perfect opportunity to call in the experts in retirement sales. Adair says he spoke to a lot of people who have done retirement sales to help him make his decision and he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson seemed to have the best set up, the best organization, the most current marketing of any of them,” he says. “If you want to run a successful sale, you have too much money on the line to be screwing around with trying to do it yourself.”
