Dispute regarding venue proved unresolvable.

The Thai Gem and Jewelry Traders Association (TGJTA) announced that its inaugural Thailand Gems & Jewelry Fair, scheduled for Sept. 7-11, 2016, has been postponed until 2017 due to a dispute that had arisen regarding the event’s venue. In a letter from Suttipong Damrongsakul, president of the TGJTA, he says the organization was “unable to secure the necessary space to organize the fair during the stated timeframe.”

He adds:

“Therefore, the TGJTA is now shifting our full focus to begin planning and secure another exhibition venue to prepare to organize the Thailand Gems & Jewelry Fair in 2017 instead. We are highly confident that this move will enable us to ensure greater benefits and a much better fair for our membership and the Thai gem and jewelry industry. We will provide update on this progress as soon as possible.

“Please know that the TGJTA is absolutely disappointed with this unexpected development and we offer our most heartfelt apologies to all exhibitors and visitors who have put faith in us in organizing the fair in September. We hope for your understanding in this unfortunate matter.

“We express our sincere thanks to all parties who have provided us with very generous support.”

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.”
