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.

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.”
