INHORGENTA MUNICH runs Feb. 18-21.

(Press Release) Trade show INHORGENTA MUNICH will feature an innovative seminar program from Feb. 18 to 21, including a lecture by Jeremy Abbet, creative evangelist at Google, on the store of the future.

The event’s 2017 edition is entirely characterized by digitalization.

“Digital distribution channels are sustainably changing the consumer behavior and thus also the jewelry and watchmaking industry,” said Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München. “It is especially retailers whom we would like to equip with suitable approaches and new strategies for coping with these challenges. For we do not only understand ourselves as sparring partners but also as trendsetters.”

Consequently, Abbet will give a lecture on Feb. 20 on the topic: “The store of the future—concepts and ideas.” In another lecture, Maximilian Hemmerle, CEO of the Renésim jewelry company, will show how e-commerce and store-based specialist trade harmonize with each other. Dr. Jens Rothenstein from the IFH Institute for Retail Research invites the audience to attend his lecture entitled “The Online Shopper of Today and Tomorrow.” And Jörn Weiss, CEO of the internet agency Weiss & Urban, will give a lecture with the title: “Think Digital!—Brand Management in the Social, Search & Storytelling Age.”

A new addition to the program will be the Gemstone Forum. Here, gemstone experts Joanna Hardy, Yianni Melas, Dr. Claudio Millisenda and Richard Drucker will share valuable knowledge with the visitors of the trade show in Munich.

Exhibition Director Stefanie Mändlein said: “We have compiled a program which matches the multitude of different aspects of the jewelry and watch industry perfectly and simultaneously facilitates discussions.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
