The Alabama Jewelers Association (AJA) and Georgia Jewelers Association (GJA) wish to invite all retail jewelers and vendors to the 2015 annual co-hosted Convention at Marriott’s Grand National Resort & Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Opelika, Alabama.
The educational program features industry super-stars, Gail Brett Levine, James Porte & Tom Weishaar. These speakers will also come together for a panel discussion on Sunday – everyone is invited to bring questions, concerns and ideas.
Golfers will enjoy a tournament on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail on Saturday, and Bench Jewelers are invited to a special impromptu session (not announced in program) during lunch on Saturday with Master Jeweler, Tom Weishaar.
“Bench Jewelers rarely have an opportunity to meet fellow retailers to discuss bench challenges, concerns, and discoveries (during shows and conventions) in a specifically targeted environment, so let’s make time for this important group in Opelika,” says Weishaar. Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind session.
Among other weekend activities are Design Competitions held individually for each state, a special Jewelers for Children Charity Auction & Poker Tournament, meeting new friends and connecting with old ones in the Hospitality Suite, and more.
Sponsorships are encouraged by both Alabama and Georgia separately, and the state of Alabama invites advertisers to join in their annual yearbook and resource guide.
