Texas Jewelers Association holds Convention at Smart Show


The August Dallas Smart Jewelry Show was the setting for the 2013 Texas Jewelers Association Convention.  For the second year in a row, the TJA co-located their pavilion along with Dallas Smart Show allowing its members to enjoy access to over 200 booths of top exhibitors, and a holiday-focused education program that helped jewelry retailers fine-tune their promotional plans and stock up on inventory for the upcoming holiday season.

TJA Executive Board members Robert Harrison (President), Jeanne Roberts Roe (President-Elect), Brad Koen (Vice President), Elliott Herzlich (Secretary-Treasurer), and Eric Wright (Past President), provided TJA members, vendors and friends with a Texas-sized taste of hospitality on Saturday, August 24th, by hosting an after-hours cocktail party at the 19th Hole Bar at the Gaylord Texan Resort.


Other convention highlights included a Texas Jewelers Association board meeting, where Ann Glynn was installed at the new TJA Executive Director, and the Texas Jewelers Association Design Contest.
