The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 2016 was formerly unveiled on Monday September 5 at a lavish party hosted in partnership with Bransom Retail Systems and Jewellery & Watch.
Bransom was the Technology Partner for the Hot 100 and the proud sponsor of the Brand Champions category. The company has been working exclusively with the jewellery trade for more than 30 years, specialising in the supply of computer systems and software, along with first-class training and support, to jewellery businesses throughout the UK.
“The Hot 100 recognises and celebrates the people who shine within the industry,” says Chris Garland, Bransom’s managing director. “It is our privilege to be the official Technology Partner for the Professional Jeweller Hot 100, and help recognise these individuals and everything they’ve done. These people push the boundaries of today’s business requirements, and so inspire us to deliver better products to support our industry.”
Bransom is an industry leader in EPoS and business management systems to the jewellery trade. This year it has enhanced its offering with new cloud-based selling tools, live sales modules with daily email updates and a price matrix module to manage multi-channel pricing and stock management.
Gold Partner Jewellery & Watch joined the Hot 100 team for the very first time. As the UK’s leading industry tradeshow, it is proud to showcase some of Britain’s most established brands, as well as some of the UK’s newest talents.
“With this ethos in mind it is only fitting that we are embarking on this partnership with the Hot 100, sponsoring the Retail Stars category,” says Julie Driscoll, portfolio director of Jewellery & Watch. “The Hot 100 provides a wonderful showcase for so many of the great talents making a difference in jewellery today.”
Jewellery & Watch aims to be the UK’s largest and most influential source of jewellery and watch collections in the UK, connecting and inspiring the jewellery community with new discoveries and insights that can lead to sustainable growth. It showcases a range of 400 exhibitors including British talent and a number of international designers.
Professional Jeweller is excited to report that the Hot 100 event this year was a huge success and the team is so thankful to Bransom and Jewellery & Watch for supporting the initiative, the industry and the publication.
