International Jewellery London, the premier trade event at the heart of the global jewellery industry, is offering professionals the chance to shape the debate at IJL 2020. Submissions are open for seminars, talks and ‘In Conversations’, to take place in the Inspire Seminar Programme at Alexandra Palace, 13-15 September 2020.
Acknowledged as one of the most comprehensive and must-attend seminar programmes in the industry, both topics and speakers are selected to inspire, inform and educate. Past topics have ranged from retail experience, up-coming key trends and brand building to VM, technology, multichannel and e-commerce.
The three-day programme encapsulates three central themes: Retail Re-imagined; The Business Forum, and Skill, Design & The Craft of Jewellery. Whilst seminar slots are mainly for one hour, there is no set format: ‘In Conversations’, mini workshops, panel debates and interactive events are all welcomed.
Show Director, Andy Ventris, comments: “Our research has shown how valuable the Seminar programme is viewed across the sector. Especially in the wake of Covid-19, access to the latest insights, knowledge, skills and trends will be even more important for exhibitors and visitors alike.
IJL exists to support the industry and we welcome their contribution to ensure that the programme spans a diversity of topics that focus on the key issues and help incentivise business success. Proposals are invited from everyone – from emerging design talents, designers and established brands to trade organisations, retailers, buyers and suppliers”.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm 26 June. All that is required is to submit the seminar talk title, format and an outline of the envisaged speakers should the submission be successful – at www.jewellerylondon.com/inspireseminarprogramme. Successful applicants will be informed by the first week of July 2020.
