These recent months have been exceptionally hectic as we transition into the busiest time of the year. We commenced the jewellery fair season with a bang at the Sydney International Jewellery Fair, offering an excellent opportunity to connect with retailers from every corner of Australia.
Following this, our team was dispersed worldwide: Rachael and Mahesh attended to the New Zealand Jewellery Fair, while John and Melinda embarked on a journey to England for our inaugural participation at the Company of Master Jewellers Fair in Birmingham. This event marked a significant milestone as it brought together our UK team for the very first time, affording Patrick McHale, our Ireland Manager, and Mark Faulker, our Manager responsible for England, Scotland, and Wales, the long-awaited chance to meet in person.
Despite encountering a security breach and a few minor challenges, we were delighted with the overall outcome and our acceptance as a trusted supplier into the CMJ. Much like the Australian and New Zealand buying groups, the CMJ exhibits a deep commitment to its members, and we are excited to provide our support to their endeavours.
