No matter what stage your business is in, no business is ever ready to stop improving or stop growing. From start ups, to established and even businesses ready to close down for good, there is always work to be done and projects to manage effectively to ensure a successful outcome.
In all businesses, there are universal departments that need to be managed, like finance, operations, marketing and HR and, more often that not, the person who started the business is not going to be an expert in all of these areas. In an ideal scenario, a business is big enough and profitable enough to hire experts in each department to manage the intricate details of those areas, but this is usually the ideal, not the norm.
In the jewellery industry, the majority of independent businesses are made up of jewellers or jewellery enthusiasts whose passion and drive to give their customer the most incredible jewellery experience is at the forefront of their offering. And outside of retail and independent manufacturers, there are hundreds of supporting businesses, such as jewellery suppliers, valuers, educators and support services, all running businesses with often the same or similar challenges to the jewellers they service.
In 2019, Moore Events launched The Jewellery Industry Summit, an event built to support all types of businesses in the jewellery industry. Large, small, start ups, retiring, jewellery retailers, jewellery suppliers and everything in between.
Due to Covid-19, the proposed date for the Summit in 2020 was postponed to 2021, and is now just around the corner in July on the 9th and 10th at the National Wine Centre of Australia. With event capacity now opening up to 100%, the Summit can welcome guests from all over Australia to its full two day program.
Tailored for your business:
The Jewellery Industry Summit is set to prepare your business for growth, and with the schedule now released online, the two day business event certainly looks to deliver.
Covering dozens of business functions with face-to-face support, the Summit is split into three areas so guests can choose which areas suit them depending on their business.
Stage: Running all day for both days, the stage will host experts from all over Australia where each of them will share their experiences and insights to help your business.
Workshops: In a separate workshop room, eight different workshops will be run over the two days. Tickets are limited to these short courses which range in topic for the industry.
Exhibitors: Available in the main hall, Summit exhibitors are made up of business services to support your business, such as insurance, marketing and education.
On top of this, guests have multiple networking opportunities and professional development experiences.
Local and International Industry Support:
The Summit has garnered local and international industry association support, with the JAA, GAA, NCJV, Gold and Silversmiths Guild and the international CIBJO all to be present at the event. The five associations will be available for guests to meet with and discuss their services and business support.
Guests can choose their own adventure in this business building event, with lots of different activities taking place across the two days. The full schedule of events is listed on the Summit website, but here we share a brief snapshot of what you can expect.
Merchandise, Marketing, Health and Wellbeing, Grant Assistance, Software and more. A full list of exhibitors is available on the Summit website.

One of the benefits of attending a business event is the ability to network with peers and colleagues after the formalities. With event spaces opening to full capacity, Moore Events is making use of the minimised restrictions by organising not one, but four different networking events. At the closing of day one of the Summit on Friday the 9th of July, Moore Events and the sponsors of the Summit, will host a cocktail party, in conjunction with the JAA who is celebrating their 90th anniversary that same week.
Saturday evening guests have the choice of three different events, all showcasing different areas of the Adelaide CBD.
It seems there will be something for everyone at the inaugural Jewellery Industry Summit, and as the first major event on the calendar for the industry, it’s the perfect chance to meet again face-to-face and grow your business. We’ll be there, and we hope to see you there too!
