Atlanta Jewelry Show’s In-Person 2022 Spring Edition Is a Go

The event will be preceded by a one-day education conference with two options for taking part.

The SoHo Experience by AJS will be held in-person March 5-6 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta.
Atlanta—The Atlanta Jewelry Show has confirmed its spring edition—called The SoHo Experience by AJS—will be held in-person in March. 
The event is slated for March 5-6 at the Cobb Galleria Centre. 
It will be preceded by an education conference on Friday, March 4. The “Squeeze the Day” event will feature two ways jewelers can learn how to take negative experiences over the past two years and turn them into business opportunities. 
First is a day-long agenda of free “Squeeze the Day” sessions with the SoHo Pros, who will go over the latest trends in selling, marketing, social media, and e-commerce, and share advice and action items for jewelers to implement in their stores. 
The full agenda will be released soon. Space is limited, and attendees must register online.

The second option is a one-day marketing intensive training. AJS will host the experts at Technology Therapy Group to conduct a program bringing critical lessons in how to succeed in a digital landscape to jewelry business owners. 
Registration for the “1-Day Digital Marketing Intensive” is open, with seating limited to 50. It costs $395 to attend. 
Learn more or register for the event on the AJS website.

Under its Safety Shines Plan, AJS will implement appropriate health and safety measures for the event, which will be updated and published as needed. 
Currently it includes daily health and temperature screenings, a face mask requirement, sanitizing stations, and transparent barriers, among other things. The full plan can be viewed online. 

Looking ahead at the rest of 2022, AJS said it also plans to host a show from Aug. 27-28.
