HardRock Summit Organizers Gear Up for Third Annual Show
More than 250 gem, jewelry, and mineral companies are expected to exhibit, including the American Gem Trade Association.
The third annual event will be held at the Colorado Convention Center from Sept. 15-18, with registration already open.
About 250 gem, jewelry, and mineral companies are expected to exhibit with a few notable names already confirmed.
For those interested in gemstones, Lee Collins Gems, Mayer & Watt, and Herbert Stephan KG are expected to exhibit.
The American Gem Trade Association’s GemFair and the Denver Gem & Mineral Show (DGMS) also will have spaces on the show floor.
On the mineral front, Collector's Edge Minerals, Kristalle, and Fine Minerals International are set to attend.
Attendees can expect to see unique natural wonders, minerals, and gemstones on display at this year’s show, as well as special exhibits and educational programs.
Collectors and museums will highlight specimens, with a series of lectures to accompany them.
New to the show this year is the VIP Buyer program, which offers special amenities and perks to buyers from large vendors.
“The demand for booth space at HardRock Summit validates the organizers' strategy of providing an exceptional show that raises the bar for quality, organization, efficiency, convenience, and style in Denver,” said organizers.
The timing of the show is also said to be advantageous to those attending and exhibiting.
The gemstone and mineral industries are up against “a phase of uncertainty regarding pricing,” said organizers, due to the market disruptions related to the pandemic and out-of-sync supply and demand, which has caused price fluctuations.
“It is anticipated that this phase will come to an end in the second half of the year, making HardRock Summit an ideal platform for purchasing, sourcing, and trading across all sectors of the industry,” said organizers.
“From silversmiths to bench jewelers, high-end jewelry manufacturers to mineral collectors at all levels, attendees can expect reasonable and market-tested prices.”
Admission is free for qualified jewelry professionals and buyers who wish to attend.
The public is also welcome and will have access to the entire show floor, except the AGTA GemFair section.
