The Can’t Miss Event!

Have you made your plans to visit the AJS Spring Market yet? While I might be a little biased about the fabulous program our team has put together for you, never before have we offered such an opportunity to gain so much in so little time! If you’re thinking about it but have not yet registered, I want to share the top five reasons that you’re not going to want to miss this spring’s event:

    1. You will want to shop the 500+ plus brands and interact with the manufacturers to find out
      about what the hottest items are in the market place and what your customers want and will
    2. You will want to attend AJS-U and the industry’s most dynamic education sessions to learn how
      to make buying decisions, how to increase sales, how to operate your communities best store,
      and how to grow your profits.
    3. You will want to discover the evolving trends of shopping on the internet and buying in your
      store by visiting our e-tail pavilion and chatting it up with experts who have successfully helped
      small business leaders like yourself gain exposure and market share by adding on-line retail.
    4. You will want to spend time with other retailers in the industry, learning from each other the
      best practices that are making them successful in a changing economy.
    5. You will want to take time to enjoy everything that Atlanta has to offer, recharge your batteries,
      and have some fun while being inspired to take your business to new heights!

Why do you not want to miss this year’s event? I hear from so many retailers how the energy of the AJS Market, being with others in the same profession, provides them with the motivation, tools, knowledge, and comfort to know that all of your hard work pays off. It is wonderful when we can spend 2 or 3 days with our friends and families who understand us and are on the same journey.

The jewelry industry is more than just a profession for me. Having grown up in a family that owned and operated our own independent store, my dad serving as SJTA president, my mom working tirelessly beside us in the AJS office each day, I understand the importance of community and how the support of one another is paramount in our health, wealth and happiness. For these reasons, I want to personally invite you to come and spend time with us at the show for what promises to be a terrific weekend of fun and friends!
