Wyoming Jade at JOGS Tucson Show: The Best in the World

Recently at the JOGS TUCSON WINTER SHOW 2013, Sean Jordan brought out beautiful Wyoming Jade, considered the best in the world. Wyoming Jade was heavily mined between 1940-60 in the Granite mountains in Wyoming. Since Jade does not naturally occur in Wyoming, it has been found in deposits around the Granite mountains classifying it as a nephrite Jade. Which is a stone so close to Jade that it is basically the same thing, the only way to tell is through tests such as x-ray or chemical. This beautiful stone ranges from opaque to translucent and comes in many shades of green as well as black and white. This stone can go for $2-$75 or more a pound depending on the stone. Many places sell imitations and real ones are sold at very high prices. Come to JOGS Tucson Gen and Jewelry Show for the best prices on Wyoming Jade.

10 ways to significantly improve returns at trade shows

Set daily leads and goals- Make sure your staff and your self have a daily goal for how many leads all of you want to acquire. Stress the importance of achieving this goal along with maybe giving prizes to those who go above and beyond.

Increase focus and pre-show and show events/promotions- Instead of giving gifts to everyone, let it be known that a special gift will be given to special customers. Those customers will come and spend time with you and will remember your booth among others at the show.

Gather only specific information- Find out specific information about your customers business tactics, such as who they cater to and where they are located. Include these details into the conversation to help you separate your hot/cold leads.

Make yourself interesting-  Use different elements to make your booth look interesting and appealing to customers.

Show interest in customers- Start a quick conversation and ask questions before offering your product.

Make sure your trade show skills are on point- Memorize prices and product details along with proper approaches. Practice this with your team to build muscle memory.

Make sure your graphics are original and interesting- Everyone knows you’re selling jewelry, try to spice it up with something a little bit more interesting to make consumers draw you out from the rest. Also, put quick bullet points on your graphics as trade show attendees are known for there quick glances.

Keep up your appearance- Greet guests kindly, smile, walk around. Never let yourself or your staff sit down at trade shows. It will be very tiring at times but when you see your sales rise, you will see how worth it it is.

Keep track of Data- Bring tools with you that can be used to keep track of the data collected at the show. This data will be vital for you in making your next business move(s).

Do not loose your leads!- Keep track of your leads throughout the day. If you don’t have time throughout the day, then do it at night. All those interactions and faces can easily be forgotten with the constant heat of a trade show. The last thing you want to do is loose them.

 

The World Diamond Council Board felt it was time to elect new leaders to guide it in the right direction.

A new President, Vice president, and treasurer have all been added to continue to lead the World Diamond council on the right path. The head of the Royal Asscher diamond company of Netherlands, Edward Asschar, will be the new President. The vice president position will be given to Andrew Bone, head of government and industry relations for the De beers group. Finally, a U.S. Coalition representative and Diamond Manufacturers and Importers Association of America president, Ronnie Vanderlinden, will be appointed treasurer. Asscher stated in an interview that he is grateful to continue the work of those before him and to continue to prevent fraud diamonds from coming into circulation. He needs everyone to continue to have faith in the companies work and that they are staying focused on the mission to continue to show the up and coming young adults in the jewelry business how it’s done.
