John Preziose, President of Prime Jewelry Group, announced that Prime will hold its 2011 buying event on Sunday, August 28 and Monday, August 29, 2011.
“We have very close relationships with our retail jeweler guests, and continually get feedback from them as well as our members,” stated Preziose. “Our 2010 event was the second highest grossing event in our nine-year history. The retailers came ready to sit down and conduct business – and that’s what exhibitors want most.”
“After considering dates later in the year, both of the audiences to whom we cater wanted to keep the same dates as we had this year. In addition, Prime’s dates fit in nicely with other events in which our members participate.”
Prime is currently negotiating with several destination resort properties as possible locations for 2011. An announcement will be made as soon as the venue has been selected.
“The location is of paramount importance to us and must meet all the standards we have set for Prime. We want our members to enjoy every aspect of our events, and part of that is providing them with world class resort amenities and services,” stated Elly Adler, Prime Marketing Director. “The various resorts we are currently negotiating with are outstanding destinations.”
The Prime Jewelry Group events are produced and managed by Southern Jewelry Travelers Association (SJTA), producers of the Atlanta Jewelry Show. Prime buying events have taken place for the last nine years and offer retailers a chance to see an extensive array of merchandise in an elegant and secure environment.
