New York – The Jewelry Industry Summit, a forum on sustainability and responsible sourcing scheduled to take place next spring, is open for registration, organizers announced this week.
The summit is scheduled to take place from March 11 to 13 at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, with an opening reception slated for the night before it starts. Members of the jewelry industry who are interested in attending can register and find more information here.
Registration is $400, but a $50 discount is available for members of a wide range of industry trade associations. Each applicable association will give members a promo code to activate the discount; prospective attendees should confirm with their organizations before registering.
The link redirects users to the website of the JA New York show, which is handling registration for the event. Those who register for the summit will receive badges for the JA New York Spring show, which also will enable them to go into MJSA Expo New York and the Lueur antique show, all three of which are taking place at the same time at the Javits Center in New York.
The purpose of the summit is to facilitate attendee discussion about responsible sourcing. The event will be an interactive, working meeting with large and small discussion groups led by professional facilitators, rather than an agenda of speakers. The goal is to align all segments of the industry, from retailers of all sizes, to designers, manufacturers, wholesalers, refiners, cutters, miners, and more.
