“This is the best educational venue in the business, bar none.”

– Jim Tuttle of Green Lake Jewelry Works in Seattle, WA

“Intense immersion sessions in marketing, education and bench skills for beginners or advanced industry professionals designed to reinforce basics, instilling a certain flavor of business common sense and evoking widespread brainstorming. [The show leaves] you with a renewed sense of purpose, easily implemented ideas and access to fashionable “smart” stock to replenish your war chest so you can blow away the competition!”

– Denise Oros of Linnea Jewelers in LaGrange, IL

“The vibe at this show is different than other shows. The pace is different. I find it invigorating.”

– Brett Weiler of Decatur City Jewelers in Decatur, GA

“An incredible learning experience filled with tips and tricks that we should be doing every day. Find out who our demographic is, find out how to market to them, and [learning how to] brand your own store was huge as well. So excited to implement!”

– Katie Taylor of Taylor’s Jewellers in Alliston, Ontario, Canada

“If you’re not at the SMART Show, you’re missing out! I received more valuable information in a short time period than any other industry show.”

– Beth Schmitz of Beth Schmitz Consulting in Austin, TX

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.”
