In-Depth Pertinent Information About Shows, Publications, Associations and Events
A long-time trusted source for industry information when it was in printed form as the Annual Planning Guide for Designers, the information formerly available in printed form is now online - and updated throughout the year -- for Inner Circle members.
Here you have full-page information on:
jewelry trade shows
designer-friendly craft fairs
trade and consumer publications
associations for designers
other industry events for designers
The entries include dates, times, qualifications, fees, locations, contact information, deadlines and more -- in short, all you need to know about each listing.
With the guide's information at your disposal, you will -- with a few clicks of your mouse -- be able to find out the differences between the JCK Show and the JA Show, get an idea which contests might give you the best odds of placing high or find out whom to call at the magazine that you have been trying to get into. You can also find out how many applicants a certain show has, what the fee is for a particular competition and what city is playing host to an organization's conference this year. And more. It's all there, updated throughout the year.
We used to charge $65 for the printed version and would probably ask $100 for it were printed separately today. More to the point, though, is that we kept hearing designers tell us how much time they were saving by having all that information right at hand. Typically, they would also tell us that the book was worth far more than what we were asking for it. It would, they kept telling us, take them enormous amounts of time to gather just the data they were interested in. Our response was 'yes, we know! We do it every year!' Now all that information is available to you with the click of a mouse, and still worth a lot in time saved -- when you become a member.
