Sheffield Assay Office's recent visit to the Spring Fair Exhibition at NEC

12 Feb 2016

Assay Office

Sheffield Assay Office, SAO, attended the 2016 Spring fair at National Exhibition Centre, NEC, on Wednesday the 10th of February. It was useful to catch up with existing hallmarking and Analytical Services customers as well as seeking out potential new ones. Having so many relevant industry players under one roof is an extremely efficient use of time for everyone involved. The fair was buoyant!

The diversity range of exhibitors at the fair provides a great opportunity to understand business insights and market expectations.  In particular, fine jewellery, watches and accessories traders were very positive with selling orders at the exhibition and are optimist for 2016 sales.

Dr Belen Morales who represent Analytical Services at SAO attended the exhibition and she was able to share and discuss current and future legislation for costume jewellery. This was welcomed by many exhibitors.  It was noticed that Nickel release, lead & cadmium contents are still the main priority for the sector. Sheffield Assay Office has an excellent reputation for consultancy and implementation of testing on this subject.
