PRÉCIEUSES CONFLUENCES 2019
EVENT FOR THE FRENCH JEWELRY INDUSTRY.
October 28 & 29, 2019
AN EVENT FOUNDED BY THE UFBJOP AND SUPPORTED BY FRANCÉCLAT
Sharing the aim of making businesses working in the jewellery sectors more
competitive, ambitious and innovative and helping them raise their profile.
Since 2010, we promote the meetings between all the professionals in the jewellery sector.
“Précieuses Confluences” was set up to give those working in France’s jewellery industry the opportunity to meet potential clients and partners from around the world. The event was founded and developed by the Union Française de la Bijouterie, Joaillerie, Orfèvrerie, des Pierres et des Perles or UFBJOP (the French association for the jewellery, gold- and silver smithery, stone and pearl industries). It is a joint industry initiative supported by Francéclat (France’s professional committee for economic development serving the watchmaking, jewellery, gold- and silver smithery and tableware sectors), with the shared aim of making businesses working in these sectors more competitive, ambitious and innovative and helping them raise their profile. .
This event offers networking opportunities for all those working in the jewellery industry, in France and beyond, from luxury brands to department and chain stores and retailers, as well as lapidaries, diamond merchants, stone and pearl dealers, those working in the artistic trades, production studios and facilities, designers, 3D designers and many more.
French and international brands and retailers are always on the lookout for fresh creative talent and skills, as well as production studios and facilities that can help them bring high-quality products to their customers and become more competitive.
This annual two-day networking event is held in Paris and offers attendees the opportunity to take part in 30-minute business meetings that will hopefully lead to professional partnerships.
Attendees can continue networking and sharing their expertise with industry professionals and partners at the drinks reception held at the end of the first day.
