The co-location of the JA New York Summer Show, the usual venue for GIA’s New York Career Fair, with NY NOW (Aug. 11-14, 2019) means space is limited.

“We’re thrilled we were able to work with GIA on hosting their event in March,” said Drew Lawsky, show director of JA New York Shows and PREMIER. “Our organization has an ongoing tradition of supporting new talent in our industry, and our hosting GIA for their annual Career Fair is an extension of an initiative that is a crucial part of our core values. We have always applauded how much GIA gives back, and it is an honor to support them in this important endeavor.”

“GIA contributes so much to the entire jewelry industry, and its annual Career Fair is a key component in ensuring our industry can continue to thrive,” said David W. Cochran, president and CEO of MJSA. “We’re excited to have our Expo run alongside JA New York and GIA’s fair this spring; there are so many potential synergies that can benefit all three of our organizations.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
