DIPLOMAT Show to make debut in Hollywood, FL Sept. 4 - 6

Unique show concept combines buying opportunities, networking and education for all

(MIAMI) - There is no disputing that Andie Weinman and Joe Murphy of the Continental Buying Group and Preferred Jewelers International™ have their pulse on what is happening with the independent jeweler and the jewelry marketplace.


They are proud to introduce the DIPLOMAT Show, offering great opportunities for retailers to fill up their cases for the fourth quarter with merchandise that will produce higher margins and help fill in the holes you may have in your inventory as we head into the critical 4th quarter. In addition to buying opportunities, networking will be a highlight as breakfast, lunch, cocktails and all educational seminars are presented and scheduled so both suppliers and retailers can attend everything together.

Education is also a very strong component of this Summer Summit and will be scheduled for the final day. The educational seminars will include:

  • President and CEO of the Jewelers Vigilance Committee, Tiffany Stevens, along with Debbie Azar from GSI will be speaking about Synthetics, Lab Grown Diamonds, Mined Diamonds, and what your responsibility is as a supplier or retailer, to yourself and the consumer.
  • Keith Elzia from Enterprise Content Solutions. This charismatic presenter spent 18 years as Executive Vice President at IBM. Keith will be going into astonishing detail about A.I. (artificial intelligence) and how it will help your business and help you acquire new customers.
  • Angela Gage from Solupay will be explaining how they can assist with website payment options and provide fraud prevention products to facilitate all elements of your business while providing the best pricing model and services.
  • Bottomline Marketing will be closing the educational seminar with an interactive and fun presentation on the ever-changing world of social media and how important it is for your business.

The DIPLOMAT Show is scheduled right after Labor Day on September 4 - 6. The show will be held at the newly renovated Diplomat Hotel and Resort in Hollywood, Florida, right on beautiful Hollywood Beach.
