Atlanta Jewelry Show to Host Retail Jewelers Organization at Spring Event

The Spring edition of the Atlanta Jewelry Show, the SoHo Experience by AJS, will be held in person on March 6-7, 2021 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia. This live gathering will be a two-day event preceded by a full day of education, the ConnectED Pre-Show Conference, on Friday, March 5.

SoHo is a play on the phrase Southern Hospitality, which is fitting because for over 70 years, AJS has been extending its guests the utmost in Southern Hospitality. Defined as a culture of warmth and friendliness, Southern Hospitality is, and has always been the core mission of AJS. They have taken this concept a step further, by creating the SoHo Experience. This three-day event spotlights this inclusive and welcoming culture and merges that with engaging experiences for all attendees.

For the first time, the Atlanta Jewelry Show is delighted to welcome the Retail Jewelers Organization (RJO) to its show floor. In true southern fashion, AJS is hosting RJO with the shared goal of delivering a powerful one-stop experience to a wider audience than ever before.

With the incredible support of the industry, AJS and RJO are committed to delivering a new experience by offering more organic opportunities for vendors and independent retailers to come together to do business in-person, something everyone is yearning to do safely. The event is designed to showcase the independent and unique value of each organization, while maximizing common interests and bringing the industry together in a safe and secure setting.

Libby Brown, Executive Director of SJTA, comments: “We are proud of the overwhelming success of the October event, and look forward to building upon that positive energy to produce another safe and profitable event for all.” Brown continues, “We have learned so much during these extraordinary times. Adaptation has been the keyword of the past year, and the need for face-to-face business is strong, especially in the jewelry industry. That is why this collaboration with RJO is so special, and we could not be more thrilled to be collaborating with Sarah and her team to exceed the expectations of the vendors and retailers who will be in attendance at this unique event. We remain especially optimistic about the future, and we are focusing all our energy on bringing everyone back to Atlanta safely.”

According to RJO Chief Executive Officer, Sarah Streb, “We have worked tirelessly, in conjunction with our respective boards, to find a solution to bring our organizations together for a safe and exciting event. Now more than ever it is time to work together, think outside of the box and find collaborations that serve the industry as a whole. We are incredibly excited about the opportunity this presents to both the Atlanta Jewelry Show and RJO and look forward to welcoming all of our members and vendors to Atlanta this March.”

Retail buyers will have the opportunity to shop the latest designs, the most popular trends along with beloved brands, all featured together during the two-day event. Pre-Registration is strongly encouraged and is now open at https://www.atlantajewelryshow.com/buyers/register/.

The ConnectED Conference, a full day of pre-show education, will be held on Friday, March 5 from 10:00am-6:00pm, and pre-registration will be required for all sessions. SJTA Education Director Cindy Chandler states, “After facing the incredible obstacles that 2020 gave us, I am looking forward to providing education and support that recognizes and addresses the direct and essential needs of the industry. SoHo Pros will be returning to offer actionable content, hands-on training, and updated strategies to attendees during scheduled sessions as well as informal interactions on the show floor.”
