Scheduled for Sept. 8-11, the event will comprise more than 310,000 square feet of show floor, exhibits, and education space.

The 2022 HardRock Summit event is scheduled for Sept. 8-11 at the Colorado Convention Center.
Denver—Registration is now open for the next HardRock Summit event. 
 
Launched last year, the HardRock Summit is dedicated to fine jewelry, gems, minerals, and fossils. 

The 2022 event is scheduled for Sept. 8-11 at the Colorado Convention Center and will bring all show elements under one roof. 
 
The four-day event will house more than 450 exhibiting companies and occupy over 310,000 square feet for exhibits, activations, and education space. 
 
The “Evolution” part of the show will feature fine minerals and fossils in the Four Seasons Ballroom. 
 
“Sparkle & Joy” will showcase fine gemstones and jewelry. It includes AGTA GemFair Denver, exhibitors from the International Colored Gemstone Association, the Brazilian Gems & Jewellery Trade Association, and a German pavilion. 
 
The Denver Gem & Mineral Show also will have a space in the convention center, as will the LLD Denver Mineral Hall. 
 
“We are excited to offer such a comprehensive roster of exhibiting companies in one large venue to be the destination for peer-to-peer connections to drive businesses forward and also the place for the general public and families to experience fine jewelry, gemstone, and mineral companies first-hand,” said Christoph Keilmann, co-founder of HardRock Summit. 
 
Visitor admission is free for qualified trade show professionals and buyers.
 
The public will be required to pay a $10 admission fee, which will grant access to the full show floor except AGTA GemFair Denver. 
 
The different attendee types will be made clear through color-coded badges. 
 
To register, visit HardRockSummit.com. 

For special rates from partner hotels, check out the Hilton Denver City Center and Grand Hyatt Denver. Both are within walking distance of the convention center.
