The UK Jewellery Awards (UKJA) is making up to 200 free tickets available to an evening event in celebration of those companies and individuals who make the shortlist for the 2017 awards.
In 2017 the UKJA will mark 25 years as the jewellery and watch industry’s premier awards event and the shortlist party will kick off the silver anniversary celebrations in style.
The UKJA shortlist party will take place at Saint Pauls House in the heart of Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter on Sunday, February 5, following the first day of trade event Jewellery & Watch.
The event, which starts at 7.15pm, enabling those who have been at the show time to get changed and travel to the venue, will only be open to those in possession of a ticket, with priority given to those who have entered the 2017 awards.
Free tickets to the event must be collected between 12pm and 4pm on Sunday, February 5 from the Retail Jeweller/UKJA stand at Jewellery & Watch, which is being held at the NEC.
Jewellery & Watch show passes will be validated in exchange for a ticket to the shortlist party with one ticket per person available.
At the event, which is sponsored by Clogau and Unode50, drinks and food will be provided and there will be a short presentation announcing the companies and individuals who have been shortlisted for the 2017 awards.
Retail Jeweller editor Ruth Faulkner said: “We are delighted to be hosting our 2017 awards shortlist event in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
