Hardrock Summit to Return to Denver in September 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) DENVER, CO — Hardrock Summit will return to the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO for its 3rd edition from September 15-18, 2023. Featuring an estimated 250 exhibitors who are among the best fine gem, jewelry and mineral companies in the world, the fair will continue to provide a next-level experience to the Denver Gem & Mineral Show schedule.

The overwhelmingly positive feedback that Hardrock Summit co-founders Christoph Keilmann and Wolter Mehring received from last year’s mineral and gemstone exhibitors reaffirmed Denver as an ideal choice for visitors from throughout the US and many other countries. In addition, the show’s time slot in September has proven to be the perfect moment for buying, sourcing, and trading for all portions of the industry, from silversmiths to bench jewelers, and high-end jewelry designers and manufacturers to all levels of mineral collectors. With an unparalleled array of offerings from raw and cut gemstones to entry-level and high-end minerals, Hardrock Summit will once again be the must-attend event for the mineral and jewelry industries in the fall season.

The high demand for booth space that the organizers experienced during the recent Tucson gem shows will again make Hardrock Summit the defining show for the finest gemstones, jewelry, and mineral specimens in the fall. “With its European flair, Hardrock Summit is exactly what the American market needs: a well-organized, upmarket, and sophisticated arena for the mineral and the gem world communities,” says Ian Bruce of Crystal Classics.

Hardrock Summit is also seeing major interest from mineral and gemstone associations and is proud to host the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) for the third time, making the AGTA GemFair™ Denver AGTA’s third hub in 2023 after the association’s presence in Tucson and Las Vegas. “AGTA is thrilled to be participating for our third year with the Hardrock Summit. Denver provides an exciting venue for our exhibitors and buyers to network before the holiday selling season,” says John W. Ford, Sr., CEO of AGTA.

Furthermore, Hardrock Summit will host the Denver Gem and Mineral Show (DGMS) again, strengthening the show’s commitment to continue the tradition of the long-running club and cater to a diverse field of mineral collectors.

“We would like to thank our exhibitors and all attendees for their support over the last two years and are excited to enter a new phase with Hardrock Summit’s 3rd edition,” states Christoph Keilmann, co-founder of Hardrock Summit.


With its expected line-up of top exhibitors from around the world, Hardrock Summit will again be the only U.S. market platform in the fall season for the finest gemstones, jewelry and mineral specimens.

It Was Time to Make a Decision. It Was Time to Call Wilkerson.

Except for a few years when he worked as an accountant, Jim Schwartz has always been a jeweler. He grew up in the business and after “counting beans” for a few years, he and his wife, Robin, opened Robin James Jewelers in Cincinnati, Ohio. “We were coming to a stage in our life where we knew we have to make a decision,” says Jim Schwartz. He and Robin wanted to do it right, so they called Wilkerson. The best surprise (besides surpassing sales goals)? “The workers and associations really care about helping us move out own inventory out of the store first. It was very important to us.”
