Building on the inaugural Flux conference in 2016, this event which is taking place Tuesday April 25-Wednesday April 26 at The Assay Office in Birmingham, will create a dynamic platform for knowledge-sharing and debate in an atmosphere of open-minded collaboration between individuals and organisations who wish to be part of something truly trailblazing.

Day one will focus on responsible and sustainable sourcing in the jewellery sector with case studies from top UK jewellers with provenance and ethics at their heart, plus the latest consumer attitudes research and a sales training launch from Fairtrade Gold. Day two will look at wider issues in the industry and beyond including specific areas of the supply chain, manufacturing and human rights, environmental impact plus big brands and global initiatives.
