(ATLANTA) - In an effort to create year-end sales, cash management and business-building opportunities for jewelers and vendors, the Southern Jewelry Travelers Association (SJTA) will launch a new "in time" delivery jewelry show October 17-18, 2009. Set to debut with 200 exhibiting companies at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, GA, the new, late season exhibition will bring together a tremendous selection of fine jewelry and accessories - perfectly timed for retailers just as they need it. Merchandise will be available for quick shipment and for immediate delivery to the trade.
The new In Time Show follows the recently concluded August 2009 Atlanta Jewelry Show, which is also produced by the SJTA and held semi-annually at the Cobb Galleria Centre. As the premier buying event for independent jewelers throughout the southeast and other areas of the country, the Atlanta Jewelry Show brings together the latest introductions and best-selling designs from more than 600 top name and up-and-coming companies. Distinctly different from the order-writing Atlanta Jewelry Show, the new In Time Show will feature a smaller, targeted product resource timed to offer last-minute, year-end opportunities.
"In today's economic climate, Atlanta's new In Time Jewelry Show offers many late season benefits to exhibitors and buyers alike," explains Carol Young, executive director, SJTA. "The show's timing not only helps with year-end cash flow management, it also gives retailers an opportunity to take advantage of last minute values and specials on designs they can still get on their store shelves in time for the busy holiday season. For exhibitors, In Time gives them a cost-effective opportunity to capture new business; a safe and convenient way to meet customers; as well as the perfect outlet for discontinued or discounted merchandise."
Limited to 200 booths, this exclusive, "late season" show will bring together a tremendous selection of fine jewelry and accessories - available for quick shipment and immediate delivery to the trade. Exhibiting categories will include antique jewelry, bridal, designer, diamond, pearl, platinum, gold and sterling jewelry, charms, earrings, diamonds, watches, tools and much more.
In addition to a tremendous selection, the new In Time Show also offers other convenient and money-saving features for attending retailers. Among the highlights will be Early Bird Shopping Specials that will be available to retailers who shop the new show on Sunday morning, October 18 between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m.
In addition, the popular SJTA Rewards Program that is an integral part of all Atlanta Jewelry Shows, will also be a key element of this new show. So, retailers will have yet another chance to earn points based on orders that can be redeemed for a wide array of luxury items, travel packages, appliances and more.
Complimentary morning coffee, free parking, valet parking services and discounted hotel and travel programs are also part of the buyer services line-up.
