IJO Show to Be Held In Person in August
Eligible non-member retailers may receive free one-way travel and a hotel stay to get a sense of what it’s like to be an IJO member.
The conference will be held Aug. 13-17 at the Marriott Downtown in Kansas City, Missouri.
The schedule will include educational seminars and networking opportunities, with more details to follow.
“We’ve had to cancel our last two conferences due to COVID-19, so we’re all anxious to get back together,” said IJO President and CEO Jeff Roberts in a press release about the event.
IJO members are loyal, Roberts said, with 75 to 80 percent of members attending both of its usual in-person events every year.
“I didn’t realize how much I would miss getting together with my IJO family to learn and recharge,” said Randy Erickson from Erickson Jewelers in Iron Mountain, Michigan, in a press release about the event.
“IJO shows have a different vibe from any other, and each time I attend I return home with knowledge and ideas that help my business.”
Registration for the event opens June 1.
Looking to welcome new members, IJO will pay for one airline ticket and four hotel nights for eligible retailers to give them a sense of “the value of membership,” the organization said.
Retailers who are not IJO members and would be interested in attending can reach out to Penny Palmer at 1-800-624-9252 or by email at email@example.com.
