Brand supports UK retailers by sponsoring industry’s biggest event.

Pandora plans to thank Britain’s entire jewellery community for its passion, talent and hard work by co-hosting the Professional Jeweller Hot 100 in September 2014.

The Hot 100, which this year celebrates its fifth anniversary, is now firmly established as the industry’s biggest night of the year, and Pandora says it is delighted to be working with Professional Jeweller on the event for the first time.


"I remember being selected as one of the Business Big Shots in the very first Professional Jeweller Hot 100 in 2010. The party was smaller then, but I loved the concept of an event that celebrated the achievements of everybody that makes the British jewellery industry so vibrant," recalls Peter Andersen president for Pandora Western Europe.

"Five years on, it feels like the perfect time for Pandora to co-host the Hot 100, allowing us to show our appreciation for the enormous efforts of Pandora’s fantastic retail partners, and the thousands of other jewellery professionals that work tirelessly to make this industry great," he adds.

Pandora will be the exclusive jewellery partner for the Hot 100, and intends to work with Professional Jeweller to make this year’s party the best ever.

The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 takes place on September 1 2014 in Central London. The venue for this year’s party is a closely guarded secret that will be revealed closer to the event.

The centrepiece of the Hot 100 party is the dramatic revealing of the 100 people that have made the roll of honour this year. Each person is chosen by the Professional Jeweller editorial team in recognition of their outstanding contribution to their businesses over the preceding 12 months. "2014 is the fifth anniversary of the Hot 100, and we have been overwhelmed with nominations for people that have really excelled this year. We can’t wait to take the stage with Pandora and our other co-hosts to unveil this year’s list to everybody," says Kathryn Bishop, editor of Professional Jeweller.

The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 takes place alongside International Jewellery London (IJL), which is the Diamond Partner of the event for a second year. Pursuit Software is once again the exclusive Technology Partner.
