Jewelry Industry Summit announces 2019 dates and venue

SummitFeb. 2-3, 2019 event theme: “Tools & Resources for a Responsible Supply Chain”

The Board of Directors of the Jewelry Industry Summit has announced plans to convene the third Jewelry Industry Summit in Tucson, AZ on February 2-3, 2019 at the Tucson Convention Center. Hosted by AGTA, the Summit promises to be an opportunity to connect, collaborate, and generate plans of action to effect positive change to maintain and support sustainability in the jewelry supply chain.

All in the trade are invited to share their perspectives, experiences and ideas to create an opportunity to improve responsibility and ethics in the creation and distribution of jewelry.

This two-day interactive conference offers participants the opportunity to develop practical strategies and actions that can be taken now to sustain the community in which we all work. Insightful content from expert industry speakers combined with shared learning, brainstorming and interactive discourse will create actions that can be taken today by designers, retailers and other participants.

“As we move into our fourth year, we have achieved much: status as a tax-exempt charity, two very successful regional events during 2018 in NY and Los Angeles, and many successful initiatives who will report their progress at the Summit in February 2019,” said Board Chairman Cecilia L. Gardner. “We plan to gather our ambitious, knowledgeable and dedicated community in Tucson to continue our success. All are welcome. Our open and interactive approach ensures that all voices will be heard as we share learning and develop strategies to continue to improve the supply chain. We are grateful that AGTA once gain agreed to host this unique industry event”

A call for speakers will be published soon. The Jewelry Industry Summit will accept applications from those individuals and entities who seek to share their experience and learning about responsible supply chain initiatives or expertise with participants.
