The Jewellery and Watch Industry Network is a bi-monthly networking event bringing together members of the jewellery and watch communities, which could be anyone from early-stage businesses through to established jewellers and watch brands as well as businesses, groups or individuals involved in the jewellery and watch industry in some way. The group was formed out of the realisation that there are too many businesses and brands that don't have anywhere to go for advice and support.
Through networking and sharing with other members, this support can be provided, and can hopefully lead to the development and growth of these businesses. We will be holding informal bi-monthly networking events in London that are open to all, some with an expert speaker delivering a talk but all followed by plenty of networking and of course the chance to grab a drink after work.
Each Meetup aims to encourage business owners to network and discuss successes or challenges, and hopefully find some way to collaborate and work together. It is often easy to forget that there is a whole community of jewellers out there that have done or are doing similar businesses to you, and by offering a neutral platform to meet, learn from and engage with others we hope to help build a more collaborative jewellery industry with a sustainable future that we can all benefit from.
