Stuller's Bridge conference hosts 650 in 2013, looking to continue in 2014

Eight events focused on increasing retailer profitability

Lafayette, LA – Looking ahead to its fourth season, Stuller’s Bridge conference series provides attendees with profitable solutions for the changing retail landscape.

Exploring contemporary areas of potential improvement for traditional jewelry stores, Bridge blends educational seminars and group dialogue discussing a range of topics including being highly connected to customers, innovative, and more profitable.

Touching on three main themes, customization, in-store experience and retail challenges and opportunities, the 2013 conference series helped independent jewelry retailers identify potential problem areas within their businesses and proactively develop innovative solutions. These themes will continue to be the conversation drivers in 2014.

"Words cannot express the gratitude I feel from attending the Bridge event hosted by my new friends at Stuller," says Ted Blais of Ted's Creative Jewelry in Southampton, MA. "I came away with a new feeling for the trade that I have never experienced before. Seeing the new innovations and the eagerness for your company to make sure I succeed was short from miraculous."

"Stuller is a hub of a wide network of jewelers across North America. Today these jewelers are collaborating more than ever, propping each other up with ideas that work. This is what's happening at Bridge," says Ken Dugas, Stuller's executive director of events. "After a powerful Bridge series in 2013, Stuller knows even more what it means to 'be tomorrow's jeweler,' and is ready to share even more in the coming year."

The 2014 Bridge conference series dates are as follows:

  • April 13-15 (Canada event)
  • May 18-20
  • June 23-25
  • August 10-12
