Since the beginning of the 21st century the jewelry industry has sponsored a regional conference and show in metropolitan Kansas City. However, as every successful jeweler knows, a successful history is important only if it serves as a foundation for innovation and improvement.
A really good event can continue to exist for a short period of time because of the status it has earned, but to continue to serve its industry and the members of that industry; it must constantly change with the times. The 2016 Midwest Jewelers Conference & Show (the MJC) is the voice of change for professional jewelers in Middle America, and for the jewelers who are new to the industry and are interested in working and learning to be professionals.
What is the MJC? Unlike the large national shows that our industry holds each year, the MJC does not exist on enormous numbers. Rather than hundreds of displays and thousands of jewelers (from all corners of the nation), the MJC provides opportunities for jewelers from Middle-America to spend face-to-face time with the foremost vendors in our industry and to meet and get to know the speakers and leaders who are shaping the ever-changing trends and fashions that bring customer back to your store again and again.
Where is the MJC being held? The 2016 MJC is where the action is! Jewelers of all ages, your family and your sales associates will be enjoying the exciting Power & Light Entertainment District in downtown Kansas City, Missouri at the incredible Kansas City Marriott Hotel Downtown. You can call now and make your reservation for a beautiful spring weekend. Call the Kansas City Marriott at (816)421-6800 or Marriott International Reservations at (888)236-2427. Be sure to tell them that your reservations are for the Midwest Jewelers Conference & Show.
When is the MJC being held? April 1, 2 and 3! The MJC begins on Friday, April 1, 2016 when you, your family, and your friends are invited to meet, discover, and enjoy the fun, unique and charming restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops in downtown Kansas City’s vibrant Power & Light Entertainment District.
