Stuller’s Bridge Conference Returns This Fall
There will be two editions, one in September and one in October.
The manufacturer has announced the return of its “Bridge” conference, happening twice this fall.
The last conference took place in 2019.
“We are eager to bring our customers back for the three-day dynamic Bridge event,” said Lauren Kessler, director of events.
“A lot has changed in the ever-growing jewelry industry since 2019, and we are looking forward to sharing what we have learned over the last few years with our customers.”
Free for qualifying customers, Bridge presents three days of education and networking for store owners and jewelers.
Sessions cover topics like data-driven strategy, repair pricing, bridal merchandising, new customization technology, and inventory management.
This year’s editions will also examine diamond-related hot topics and digital marketing to grow companies’ online presences.
“Bridge is also a great networking opportunity,” said Kessler.
“It offers a chance to step away from the day-to-day and be inspired by new ideas from not only Stuller experts but also from jeweler to jeweler.”
There are two editions of the conference, held at Stuller’s Lafayette, Louisiana headquarters.
The first is Sept. 18-20 and the second is Oct. 16-18.
Registration is available online.
