The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) has announced that American jewellery TV giant, Jewelry Television (JTV), will be the Platinum Sponsor for its upcoming Conference 2015.
Welcoming speakers from around the globe, the Gem-A Conference has a reputation for tackling the most innovative and contemporary gem-related topics, whilst bringing together some of the leaders in the field for a weekend of networking and special events.
Alongside sponsoring the Gem-A Conference for the past 3 years, JTV has vastly contributed to the expansion and increased recognition of the Gem-A brand worldwide. This began with training of JTV staff, TV appearances for both former CEOs, Jack Ogden and James Riley, and grew into the GemBasics course — marketed and distributed to an enormous stateside audience, solely by JTV.
Since then, Gem-A has benefited from free use of JTV’s facilities labs in the U.S., and funding for the re-establishment of a UK-based educational research lab at Gem-A, with the purchase of a costly EDXRF — which has enabled the Association to formalise plans to host the world’s first Gemmology Degree in association with Birmingham City University.
The Gem-A Conference will incorporate the Federation for European Education in Gemmology’s (FEEG) 18th International Symposium of Gemmology, and will be held at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in Marylebone, London from November 21-22 2015.
