WJA Jewelry Night Out welcomes designers, retailers, marketers, appraisers, salespeople, manufacturers, and members of the media and jewelry and watch industry organizations to its annual get-together. "WJA Jewelry Night Out has become so much more than a networking and membership event," says Brandee Dallow, WJA president. "It brings together women and men from all over the country in a way that inspires camaraderie and singularity of purpose. On this special night, 19 distinct chapters celebrate as one."
Attendees at all events can apply for, or renew, membership in WJA, for a one-time price of $99 (reduced from $160 for new members; $135 for renewing members). The one-time $99 price for new and renewing members is only valid that evening for people attending the events.
"WJA Membership is one of the most important gifts you can give your jewelry industry career," says Fran Pennella, WJA membership chair. "From the networking at Jewelry Night Out, access to our scholarship and grant opportunities, educational programs as well as the countless discounts on events all year round, it's worth the price of admission."
A special feature of the evening at all locations is a #WJABlingCam -- a miniature photo set at which attendees can display their hands to show off rings and bracelets via social media.
WJA also encourages attendees to use the hashtag #WJAJewelryNightOut during the evening, to connect events nationwide on social sites.
Jewelry Night Out's lead sponsors are the brands Kay Jewelers and Jared The Galleria of Jewelry, both members of the Signet Group. In-kind sponsors include INSTORE, JCK and National Jeweler magazines.
