SJTA Extends Atlanta Jewelry Show Community Resources to Industry Members Affected by Hurricane Michael


ATLANTA, GA —October 11, 2018—

As authorities begin to assess the damage and respond to the immediate needs of those affected by Hurricane Michael, The Atlanta Jewelry Show is offering its assistance once again to help support the recovery efforts of our industry friends and members.

Executive Director Libby Brown announced that the full resources of the Atlanta Jewelry Show will be available to affected communities. “During this time of great need, I want to assure our retailers and vendors that our team is here for them in whatever capacity necessary to aid in their recovery. The Atlanta Jewelry Show is a year-round resource for our independent jewelry retailers, sales representatives, and vendors,” Brown said. “We don’t stop working for you when the show ends. We stand ready to support you in good times and bad.”

The AJS office staff will tap into its vast resources and nationwide connections in order to make the lives of AJS community members as easy as possible during the post-storm recovery phase.

  1. Are you a vendor can provide relief or materials to those affected by these disasters?
  2. Are you a retailer who has extra supplies that your fellow retailers might need to help them get their businesses back up and running?
  3. Have you been affected in any way? If so, please reach out to us. Recovering from these types of natural disasters is a long-term process that can last months or years. We’re happy to make our resources available to you for as long as you need.

In closing, Brown said, “The Atlanta Jewelry Show staff is committed to laying a foundation from which those who are affected in our industry can begin to rebuild and thrive, and is more than willing to work with you in whatever capacity we can to make that happen.”
