It’s a result of Hurricane Irma.

(Press Release) MIAMI BEACH, FL — ​Centurion South Beach and its 25 in 5 e-Commerce Conference have been canceled due to Hurricane Irma damage to the show and conference venue, the Ritz Carlton South Beach. The hotel will be closed for repairs during the show and conference dates — Oct. 7-10 — and beyond.

“We regret to inform our attendees and exhibitors of this difficult decision,” said Howard Hauben, president of Centurion. “But given the number of attendee areas impacted by Hurricane Irma and the loss of our venue, cancellation for this year was the only sensible way forward.”

Centurion South Beach will be back for 2018, with dates to be announced soon. And the Jewelry Industry’s E-Commerce Conference, 25 IN 5, is being prepared for release as an exciting webinar series accessible to the entire industry, with details to be announced soon as well.

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.”
