LAFAYETTE, LA – Stuller has announced the dates for the 2016 Bridge conference series, which will be kicking off its seventh season in May.

“Bridge is about personal growth and renewal,” says Ken Dugas, interactive events director for Stuller. “It offers a chance to step away from the day-to-day and to be inspired by new ideas through our in-depth classes and networking.”

Classes focus on issues such as bridal merchandising, inventory management, new directions in customization technology, and repair pricing. “Since Bridge, bridals sales are up about 60 percent,” says Tim Wright of Simply Unique Jewelry Designs.

This year’s Bridge dates are as follows:

  • May 15-17
  • June 12-14
  • August 21-23
  • October 2-4
  • October 16-18

Stuller’s remote events – Transform Tours – are also returning this spring. Stuller professionals travel the country, addressing the challenges independent jewelers face and discussing how to remain relevant in an ever-changing retail landscape.

“These tours are a great opportunity for owners, managers, and sales associates who want to learn about marketplace trends,” says Heather Kutzman, sales services director, Stuller. “We present insight on inventory management, new consumer technology on the sales floor, and the all-important bridal business.”

The 2016 Transform Tour event schedule is as follows:

  • Boston, MA – March 6
  • Milwaukee, WI – April 10
  • New Orleans, LA – September 11
  • Minneapolis, MN – September 25

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
