It will be held May 21-24.

(Press Release) Registration is now open for the 2017 Santa Fe Symposium, which will be held May 21–24 in Albuquerque, NM.

“There is one reason I attend the Santa Fe Symposium year after year without fail: I learn more there than I do through the rest of the year,” said Eddie Bell, one of the founders of the Symposium.

At its inception 31 years ago, the Santa Fe Symposium brought forth a notion that professionals across the global jewelry market could, and should, collaborate on their business practices and their thoughts about the future. Over three decades later, the Santa Fe Symposium is highly regarded as the premier conference to learn about new industry developments. Non-commercial and uncompetitive, the Santa Fe Symposium focuses on asking questions, opening peer-to-peer discussions and widening professional networks within the jewelry market.

There are 24 speakers planned for the 2017 Symposium, and presentation topics will include discussions on laser printing, improving the hardness of fine gold, fanning the creative spark, business growth and much more.

“The Symposium is all about the science of making jewelry and, for me, it is a lot more than that,” said Gary Dawson, professional designer/goldsmith and six-time presenter at the Santa Fe Symposium. “It is the opportunity to meet people who are every bit as passionate about making jewelry as I am and to share and absorb that passion during every waking moment.”

Register before March 31 to reserve your spot with early-registration pricing. Scholarships are available for a few qualified applicants. Group registration (two or more people from your business) offers further discounts. Seating is limited.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
