If you're interested in attending a trade show where you can see new tools and technologies, then MJSA's Expo New York is a good option for you, especially given your proximity to New York City. It's being held March 12-14 at the Javits Convention Center. The show's exhibitors include suppliers offering bench tools and equipment, machinery, laser welders, CAD/CAM, as well as findings, precious metal alloys, gemstones, and pearls. In addition, there will be contract service providers of casting and refining services. (You can see a full list of exhibitors here.)
Also, new this year will be a tool testing station, which will let you gets hands-on with some of the latest new tools on the market, as well as a demo corner where experts will be demonstrating techniques.
And since you’re also interested in possibly exhibiting your jewelry at a show one day, you can also check out the JA Winter Show, which will be running concurrently at the Javits Center with Expo. This show focuses primarily on finished jewelry.
Registration for Expo New York is now open, and you can register for free. If it’s tools and equipment you’re after, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
