The Select Jewelry Show reported a “big success for retail jewelers and the exhibitors who supply them,” at it’s Foxwoods Resort event, held August 19 - 20.
Select Jewelry Shows, which were started in 2010, are smaller, more personal events featuring 55-65 popular lines and prestigious brands. The Select Shows offer comfort and convenience for the retail jeweler. The unique format enables jewelry retailers to network with and create lasting relationships with nationally recognized fine jewelry designers and manufacturers in important categories a retail jeweler needs to achieve sales success.
Each morning during breakfast, before the buying floor opened, jewelers learned how to improve their businesses with seminars on “Communicating in the Jewelry World” by Jackie LeBental and “Compensation Conundrum” presented by Susan Arlin.
During the show retail jewelers had an opportunity to win part of a $10,000 give-away. Sunday evening jewelers and exhibitors enjoyed themselves as they mixed and mingled at the cocktail party, a popular fixture at Select Shows.
“The size of the event is great, not overwhelming, filled with great vendors too,” said Leo Poisson, Portsmouth Jewelers. “The combination of the event venue and the people are wonderful.”
“The show is fabulous! The presentation was professional, friendly and very approachable,” added first time attendee Cheryl Clifford, Designs by Cher. “We will be back year after year.”
“I saw a lot of class at the show including the Select Team!” commented Mike Turgeon, Turgeon Jewelers.
“The success of the Foxwoods show was a great beginning to Select’s 2018 season as we move onto our next two sold-out shows, Dallas and Select DC,” stated Jordan Brockhaus-Spears, show director. “The team and our wonderful exhibitors worked very hard to create a meaningful event for the jewelers.”
Upcoming Select Jewelry Shows this year will be at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas, Texas, September 16-17, and Select DC, October 14-15 at the Gaylord National Resort, just minutes from Washington DC and nearby Ronald Reagan Airport in the National Harbor area of Maryland.
