Press Release:  The Gemmological Association of Great Britain (Gem-A) announced its sponsors for this year's international conference at the Business Design Centre in Islington from November 1 to 4, 2014. The conference invites members of the association and the wider gem and jewelry industry to join them for a four-day event comprised of speakers, workshops, trips and social events for anyone from the aspiring gemologist to the seasoned professional.
Gem-A has recently confirmed two new sponsors and one associate supporter for the  event, adding to an A-list of top companies already on board.  Recently confirmed sponsors include The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) which, alongside taking up position as a sponsor, will be backing Gem-A education courses by marketing them directly to members over the coming months. Joining the CMJ will be Italy-based gemological laboratory Gemological Education Certification Institute (GECI), which will take up the final slot of our current sponsorship spots.

Alongside our sponsors are our associate supporters; avid supporters of the association that have pledged sponsorship money or resources for the event. The most recent addition to this list is C W Sellors, which support the conference for the second year and will also be bringing the largest piece of Whitby jet ever found to be studied by attendees.

In addition to these three sponsors, the Gem-A conference is also supported and sponsored by a number of companies from across the globe, including:  U.S. TV-giant Jewelry Television,  joining the conference as major sponsor;  spectrometry wizards, GemmoRaman532 will be joining the conference as sponsors;  AnchorCert, Institute of Registered Valuers (IRV), GemWorld International and Marcus McCallum FGA will be joining the conference as supporters; the British Jewellers' Association (BJA), T.H. March and Aspara Gems will be joining as associate supporters.

Gem-A's CEO, James Riley, said, "For another year, Gem-A has managed to pull together some of the largest international companies to sponsor our conference. It's no wonder, with the caliber of speakers at this year's event, that we've had such overwhelming support from all aspects of the trade. We're extremely pleased to have the CMJ, GECI and CW Sellors on board, alongside our other sponsors. It's a welcome return for CW Sellors (who supported and spoke at our conference in 2013) and a huge bonus to have GECI and CMJ joining us for the first time. Having all three of these companies supporting our conference is superb news and we thoroughly look forward to working with them in the coming months."


Gem-A is still accepting offers for sponsorship from the trade and encourages any companies interested in becoming a sponsor to get in touch. The conference takes place November 1 to 4, with tickets starting from GPB 225 for one day.
