The Jewellery Festival Flourishes

Just prior to Easter, Sarah North, our Business Consultant visited the Jewellery Festival which took place at the Hilton Metropole Hotel in London.  Over 2 days, suppliers, retailers and industry professionals met, traded and discussed the industry.  There were some excellent speeches and panel discussions covering relevant topics important to us today and for the future. 

"It was great to chat with current and potential customers as well as looking at further collaborations with our partners the NAJ as well as industry experts. One of the highlights of the event was the Shortlist Awards Party celebrating all those who have reached the shortlist for their categories and giving everybody the opportunity of networking in an informal environment after a busy day" Sarah said.

Sarah reported that throughout the two days the atmosphere was 'buzzing', giving everybody a really good, positive feeling. 

Dubbed the “pinnacle” and “Oscars of the jewellery industry”, the UK Jewellery Awards is the trade’s longest running and most prestigious awards event and will take place this year on Wednesday 26th June. We'd like to wish the best of luck to all who have been shortlisted.
