Vendor Café to open at the Georgia & Alabama Jewelers Convention

The jewelers of Georgia and Alabama are pleased to announce a new venue for networking at their Convention, April 17th-19th. The Convention will be held at the beautiful Callaway Gardens 13,000 acre resort located in Pine Mountain, Georgia.


The Vendor Café will be hosted by both states, and will offer the opportunity for retail jewelers and traveling salespeople to come together in a comfortable environment to share ideas, discuss new trends, and get to know each other better. Space will be offered to vendors for displaying catalogs, brochures and/or promotional items, as a way to say thank you to those who support both state associations through memberships, sponsorships, advertising in newsletters and yearbooks, and door prizes.


Executive Directors Judy Lince (Georgia) and Kathy Beall (Alabama) say that, "offering a special networking venue for our traveling salespeople who continuously support our state associations is what The Vendor Café is all about." Don Lowe (AJA President) stated, "Conventions and special events would not be possible without the generous support our vendors give us every year. As our industry is faced with a challenging economy, we wanted to find a way to let our reps know how much we appreciate them."
