(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK – Symposium ’24, the two-day retailer-focused learning forum, presented by The Plumb Club and JCK, with Jewelers Mutual as the founding sponsor, is pleased to announce that Lori Greiner will deliver the keynote address on Sunday, March 10th, kicking off the event. Ms. Greiner will be followed by a robust list of renowned authorities providing insightful seminars and case studies across the categories of business, marketing, product, and trends. Details on the full roster of speakers will follow shortly.

Lori Greiner started with one idea and turned it into a multi-million-dollar international brand. She is well known as a self-made inventor and entrepreneur who created and marketed over 1,000 products and holds 120 US and international patents and has a 90% success rate for new items launched. She is recognized as one of the most prolific inventors of retail products of our time and a master brand builder. A leading Shark on ABC’s 4x Emmy Award-winning entrepreneurial business show, Shark Tank, she invests in companies and helps turn people’s dreams into reality. Several of her investments are the highest success stories on Shark Tank to date, having 10 of the top 20 investments. She’s well known for her impeccable negotiating skills and uncanny ability to know, identify, and launch emerging brands.

At the heart of Lori’s own success is a combination of talent, hard work, and perseverance. She is a strong role model for women of all ages and was honored with the Sherry Lansing ‘Woman of the Year’ Award and, by the Paley Center, as an Important Woman in Television. Lori’s international bestseller Invent It, Sell It, Bank It! is a step-by-step guide on how to turn an idea into a million-dollar reality.

The majority of invitations to the limited seating opportunity have been sent by The Plumb Club and seats are already becoming limited for the event, which will extend New York’s week of jewelry festivities, and is conveniently located in midtown Manhattan.

After the keynote address, attendees will customize their daily learning by pre-registering for a mix of relevant topics across varied learning tracks. Each day’s curriculum will end with a social gathering filled with meaningful conversation and learning exchanges at a networking cocktail reception. Lunches will be provided and refreshments served throughout the day.
