The Perth Jewellery Meetup is a regular networking and social event bringing together members of the jewellery community, which could be anyone from apprentices and early-stage jewellery businesses through to established jewellers and brands as well as businesses, groups or individuals involved in the jewellery industry in some way. This event is hosted by the WA Branch of the Jewellers Association of Australia (JAA). Through social networking and sharing with other members, support and advice can be provided, and can hopefully lead to the development and growth of the individuals and businesses involved. We will be holding regular events in and around Perth that are open to all. There will be the chance to ask advice, plenty of networking opportunities and of course the chance to grab a drink after work. Each Meetup aims to encourage apprentices, students and jewellery business owners to network and discuss success or areas of difficulty, then, who knows, maybe 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. By offering a casual, 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.
