Why Should I Attend?

For You

Grow

The Bridge conference was created to help you grow. As a jeweler. As a store owner. As a colleague. Classes focus on the present and future of the jewelry industry, with the goal of building a sturdy bridge across the restless waters of today’s market. If you’re eligible to attend, we cover all of your expenses except for travel.

Share Expertise

Stuller claims no retail expertise. You’re the expert there. But we have a useful perspective. As the supply hub for thousands of jewelers, we see what works and what doesn’t. We’ve been in the trenches with you for 45 years. Bridge is a time for us to share what we’ve learned and to move the jewelry business forward…together.

Rejuvenate

Bridge is also about personal growth and renewal. It offers a chance to step away from the day-to-day and to be inspired by new ideas. And it all takes place at Stuller’s world-class facility in Lafayette, Louisiana, in the heart of one of the country’s most interesting destinations for food, music, and culture.

For Your Business

Data-Driven Strategy

People buy jewelry for emotional reasons. But the jewelry business is about cold, hard facts. At Bridge, you’ll learn data-driven strategies directly related to your daily work.

In-Depth Classes

Classes include deep dives into issues such as repair pricing, bridal merchandising, inventory management, and new directions in customization technology. All sessions are both informative and interactive. Attendees pick up tips and tricks from Stuller experts as well as fellow jewelers.

Networking

Bridge also offers a prime networking opportunity. By building vital connections, you’ll continue to make a name for your business. And by meeting face to face with Stuller staff, you’ll receive personalized insight into what might work for you in the future.
