(PRESS RELEASE) Polygon, powered by mdf commerce, a network & marketplace for the jewelry industry, will be hosting their annual Gem & Jewelry Show – a Polygon Conclave & Trade Event – in Charlotte, NC from March 17-19.

The event, open to jewelry trade professionals, will provide opportunities for attendees to do business, learn, and build their networks with other like-minded jewelers.

“One thing people really love about Polygon events, is that they get the chance to meet other business owners and interact with them on a personal level,” says Sean Lemire, General Manager of Polygon. “This makes a big difference when it comes to building lasting, trustworthy relationships. Business goes long past just the weekend of the show.”

The show opens with a meet & greet on Friday evening, followed by a full day of seminars and panels, and a dinner event on Saturday. Education this year will cover some pertinent topics for jewelers: a Brunch & Learn will include lightning talks from others in the industry sharing experiences on doing business in the post-covid world, one session will look at security issues and tips, and Brad Huisken from IAS Training will lead a seminar on how to effectively manage people to increase productivity.

“Sharing experiences, interacting with experts and learning from peers are important aspects in ensuring attendees get the most out of the education program,” says Lemire. “It’s important to have actionable take-aways when you attend these shows and events.”

In addition to networking and education, the trade show floor will be open all day Sunday. Exhibitors include jewelers with OTC and other jewelry items to sell, diamond dealers, lab grown wholesalers, jewelry sellers, watch dealers and more. Those walking the floor are welcome to come to buy or backpack the event. This is a great opportunity to flip out of some inventory, make some money, and find great deals on unique items.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
