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.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
