Atlanta Jewelry Show Celebrates 65th Anniversary
The Atlanta Jewelry Show, one of 179 multi-day conventions/trade shows held at the Cobb Galleria Centre each year, is celebrating its 65th Anniversary.
The Southeastern Jewelry Travelers Association produces a bi-annual buying show at the Cobb Galleria Centre. This year’s spring show ran February 28 – March 2. The Atlanta Jewelry Show is where independent jewelry stores come to place orders for fresh new jewelry styles and best-selling designs. And, it’s more than just a trade show. It’s an industry event that provides opportunity and networking in an environment that’s relaxed, friendly, professional and overflowing with southern hospitality. Buyers can explore the latest from top brands and up-and-coming companies representing virtually every product category, including the new handcrafted section. There are a number of free seminars offered throughout the show. Presented by industry leaders and business experts, these programs promise to put stores on the cutting edge.
The show has made its home at the Cobb Galleria Centre since 1996, and 400 exhibitors fill an estimated 144,000 square feet of exhibition and event space at the Cobb Galleria Centre and Renaissance Waverly Hotel.
The show’s economic impact is felt throughout Atlanta, with more than 7,500 attendees filling 4,600 area hotel rooms, twice a year.
