Stuller, Inc. announces 2016 Bridge® and Transform Tour dates

Multiple educational events to increase retailer profitability

Lafayette, LA (23 February 2016) – Stuller recently announced the dates for the 2016 Bridge conference series, which will be kicking off its seventh season in May.

“Bridge is about personal growth and renewal,” says Ken Dugas interactive events director. “It offers a chance to step away from the day-to-day and to be inspired by new ideas through our in-depth classes and networking.”

Our classes focus on issues such as bridal merchandising, inventory management, new directions in customization technology, and repair pricing. “Since Bridge, bridals sales are up about 60%,” says Tim Wright of Simply Unique Jewelry Designs.

This year’s Bridge dates are as follows:

  • May 15-17
  • June 12-14
  • August 21-23
  • October 2-4
  • October 16-18

Stuller’s remote events - Transform Tours - are also returning this spring. Stuller professionals travel the country and address the challenges independent jewelers face and discuss how to remain relevant in an ever-changing retail landscape.

“These tours are a great opportunity for owners, managers, and sales associates who want to learn about marketplace trends,” says Heather Kutzman, sales services director. “We present insight on inventory management, new consumer technology on the sales floor, and the all-important bridal business.”

The 2016 Transform Tour event schedule is as follows:

  • Boston, MA – March 6
  • Milwaukee, WI – April 10
  • New Orleans, LA – September 11
  • Minneapolis, MN – September 25
  • Orlando, FL – October 9
  • Seattle, WA – October 23

“I always appreciate the training and knowledge I receive from the events Stuller organizes,” says Keith Flynn from Flynn Jewelry. “Stuller and their staff go out of their way to organize an exceptional experience and value with their events.”
