Nancy Robey and Holly Granofsky Launch of JewelPoint and GoldPoint

Nancy Robey of The Nancy Robey Partnership, and Holly Granofsky of The Social Sparkle, are pleased to join forces with Connecting Point Marketing Group for the development and execution of JewelPoint and GoldPoint. These niche, needs-based, fine jewelry buyer/seller matching events will serve the unique needs of the fine jewelry industry by matching vetted, trustworthy resources with US-based buyers.

JewelPoint, which is slated to take place in October of 2018, will match hard to source gold, loose gemstone, unbranded finished gemstone jewelry and estate suppliers with top executives, while GoldPoint, taking place in February of 2019, will continue its successful precedent of matching buyers with unbranded overseas gold suppliers.

The original concept of GoldPoint was introduced in San Diego in 2017 and was based on market research conducted by Robey and Granofsky to uncover needs in the fine jewelry industry. The duo went on to source and vet private label gold manufacturers from Peru, Turkey, Italy, India, Israel and France and then matched them with buyers, merchandizing executives and CEOs of over 30 regional chain and volume jewelry companies.

The partnership with Connecting Point Marketing Group (CPMG), who has been successfully hosting similarly designed events in other industries since 2004, provides Robey and Granofsky with the infrastructure necessary to expand upon their initiative.

“We are confident that we are providing both suppliers and buyers with exceptional value in the creation of these events,” explain Robey and Granofsky. “Many traditional and regional chain stores simply don't have the time or resources necessary to travel overseas to attend trade shows or meet with manufacturers and suppliers, and even if they are able to carve out the time, they face another obstacle in knowing how to work with these markets and who they can trust. We remove all of that guess work by doing the vetting for them, and then curating their appointment schedules during our hosted events with suppliers that can meet their specific needs. CPMG’s sophisticated model is a catalyst for the future success of these events.”

“CPMG events are not intended to take the place of traditional trade shows, but rather to augment them by stimulating future productive interactions,” notes Nancy Splaine, co-founder of CPMG. “Our intimate, face-to-face forums, with highly curated personalized agendas, are well-suited to serve the needs in the jewelry marketplace and facilitate a dialogue for these groups that Nancy and Holly have researched. CPMG is excited to leverage their relationships and product sourcing expertise to enhance our offerings and complement Emerald Exposition’s jewelry trade shows.”

CPMG’s proprietary technologies and their superior “hosted meeting matching model” will customize the event experience for both buyers and suppliers, while also creating significant efficiencies and well-conceived user experience and industry insight. The intimacy and personalization of these exceptionally executed events provide ample opportunities for expansion into other buyer groups, such as US-based designers and manufacturers seeking design inspiration and hard-to-find overseas resources for unusual gemstones.

JewelPoint will take place October 9-11, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego, CA and GoldPoint will take place in February of 2019.
