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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
