Regional preview gives local retailers a taste of IJL 2014.
International Jewellery London has announced plans to hold a Manchester preview event, giving retailers the chance to meet established exhibitors and the as-yet-unconfirmed KiskStarters 2014.
The regional event, designed to give retailers a taste of the larger IJL trade show, will take place at the Malmaison Hotel in Manchester from 6pm to 8pm on May 21.
The Manchester event follows a successful 2013 for IJL, including two popular preview shows in Edinburgh and Leeds.
Exhibitors taking part include Mark Milton, Tivon Fine Jewellery, Trollbeads, Peers Hardy Group, Rare Jewellery and six KickStarters, who will be revealed by Professional Jeweller in due course.
Professional Jeweller readers and the wider industry will also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite KickStarter contender for the IJL People’s Choice Award in September. The winner, chosen from the final shortlist of 10, will get the opportunity to exhibit as part of the Design Gallery at IJL 2015 for free.
Voting will open on May 6 using the hashtag #KickStartVote.
International Jewellery London will take place at Olympia London from August 31 to September 2.
