Commenting on last year's UK Jewellery Festival Trade Event Kevan Jenkinson sales director at Hockley Mint said: "The level and quality of suppliers in the room exceeded my expectations and meant that the retailers that came to the show were of excellent calibre."
Kathryn Darwin business manager at Studex added: "We took the opportunity to engage with a fantastic cross section of section, including some of our own customers as well as potential new retailers.
