(Press Release) COLUMBUS, OH — New Horizons Jewelry Show announces the addition of Ben Smithee, CEO of The Smithee Group, and Bob Phibbs, the Retail Doctor, to the lineup of industry experts speaking at pre-show workshops.

Smithee will share his knowledge of digital marketing, how to integrate digital and traditional media, and ways to reach millennials and younger generations in the day-long marketing workshop. Phibbs will be discussing the challenges and current state of the industry, as well as training and techniques on how to increase retail sales numbers in the day long Sales Workshop.

Both Smithee and Phibbs have worked closely with the jewelry industry during their careers. Smithee has worked with Sterling Jewelers and currently serves on the International Board of Directors for the Women’s Jewelry Association.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
