The 23rd annual Santa Fe Symposium® will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico from May 17-20, 2009. A premier international conference for jewelry manufacturing technology, the Symposium provides attendees with cutting-edge information on research, trends and techniques from the jewelry industry. By attending, jewelers are investing in the future of their companies in order to withstand the difficult economic times we face today. This year's forum will be held at Hotel Albuquerque, where jewelers will hear and discuss ground-breaking presentations on the subjects that matter most to their business and to the jewelry industry.
There will be an exploration of progressive topics that give jewelry professionals practical advice to keep their business at the forefront of the manufacturing industry; from the advantages and limitations of electro-mechanical polishing to the reduction of time and cost through use of Reliability Centered Maintenance, or from the production and application of Japanese irogane alloys and patination to the explanation of price fluctuation for platinum group metals. The 2009 Symposium provides jewelers with the opportunity to learn from leading experts in the field and to forge relationships with fellow jewelry manufacturing professionals.
