(PRESS RELEASE) In response to the fast-breaking developments related to the COVID-19 coronavirus in New York City, MJSA has decided to postpone its Expo, which had been scheduled to run March 15-17 at the Javits Center.

“We place the highest importance on the health and well-being of our exhibitors, attendees, and staff,” said MJSA President/CEO David W. Cochran. “Given Governor Cuomo’s decision to declare a state of emergency for New York State, along with the current uncertainty about the virus’s progression in New York City, we’ve decided to postpone the show until the threat passes and we can be more certain that MJSA Expo can be run both safely and successfully.

“We’ve already heard from many Expo exhibitors who agree that this move is necessary,” he continued. “We are currently working with the management of JA New York and the Javits Center to identify new show dates for later this year, and we’ll coordinate with our exhibitors to ensure the shift can proceed as smoothly as possible.”

MJSA would like to thank everyone for their support and new dates will be announced soon.

MJSA Expo is the longest-running trade show dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design, and it annually features the leading suppliers of related tools, equipment, supplies, and services. For continuing updates, go to MJSAExpo.org.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
