When MJSA Expo returned last year to the Javits Center in New York City, both buyers and exhibitors treated it like a homecoming. Expo has long been known as a connecting hub offering the support and supplies needed to make, design, and sell great jewelry – from chain, components, and gems to alloys, bench tools, and production technologies. Last year’s buyers “were hungry to see everything in person,” said exhibitor Curt Heher, president/CEO of Rare Earth Mining Co.
“We sold everything across the board,” he said. “Online is important, but that person-to-person contact – to touch something, to make sure nothing is wrong, to hear a back story – you can’t beat it!”
That’s what has always made MJSA Expo special – that ability to connect with both people and products in a personal way. In 2023, Expo will run at the Javits Center March 5 – 7, and it will once again feature everything that has made it the trade show dedicated to jewelry making and design:
- The Latest in Jewelry-Making Tools, Technologies, and Supplies. Not only can you find the latest and greatest jewelry-making products at Expo, but you can touch, test, and inspect them. Where else can you feel the heft of a new bench tool, loupe a CAD model, create pinpoint welds with a laser, or gauge the strength of a finding or chain – all on the same day?
- Gemstones a Cut Above. From myriad colored stones and pearls to diamonds (both natural and lab-grown) of every cut and carat, you’ll be able to sort through gems offered by some of the finest suppliers in the world.
- Subcontractors Who Can Lend an Expert Hand. Maybe you’ve experienced skyrocketing demand, require a certain expertise to launch a new product, or just want to lighten your load. Whatever the reason, you’ll find the expertise you need – from CAD/CAM and casting to plating and assembly and everything in between.
- Expertise Everywhere. MJSA exhibitors have accumulated many decades of expertise – and all are eager to share what they know. You can also attend the free series of “Live from Expo” conversations with noted industry leaders.
- Community Connections. As one attendee said, “MJSA Expo is filled with people like me – people who love to make jewelry!” If that sounds like you, then you belong at Expo.
