<IDEX Online> - The Board of Directors of the Jewelry Industry Summit announced that the third Jewelry Industry Summit will be held in Tucson on February 2-3, 2019 at the Tucson Convention Center.


Hosted by AGTA, the Summit "promises to be an opportunity to connect, collaborate, and generate plans of action to effect positive change to maintain and support sustainability in the jewelry supply chain," according to a statement. All in the trade are invited to share their perspectives, experiences and ideas to create an opportunity to improve responsibility and ethics in the creation and distribution of jewelry.


"This two-day interactive conference offers participants the opportunity to develop practical strategies and actions that can be taken now to sustain the community in which we all work.  Insightful content from expert industry speakers combined with shared learning, brainstorming, and interactive discourse will create actions that can be taken today by designers, retailers and other participants."


Board Chairman Cecilia L. Gardner (pictured above) said: "As we move into our fourth year, we have achieved much: status as a tax-exempt charity, two very successful regional events during 2018 in NY and Los Angeles, and many successful initiatives who will report their progress at the Summit in February 2019. We plan to gather our ambitious, knowledgeable and dedicated community in Tucson to continue our success. All are welcome. Our open and interactive approach ensures that all voices will be heard as we share learning and develop strategies to continue to improve the supply chain. We are grateful that AGTA once gain agreed to host this unique industry event".


A call for speakers will also be published soon. The Jewelry Industry Summit will accept applications from those individuals and entities who seek to share their experience and learning about responsible supply chain initiatives or expertise with participants.
