The National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) has announced the jewellery businesses and individuals shortlisted for this year’s NAJ Awards, which sees the Company of Master Jewellers shortlisted in the Marketing Campaign/Event of the Year category for its Spring 2023 Trade Event.

The awards ceremony will take place at the NAJ Summit on Sunday 25 June, at the Park Regis Hotel, Birmingham.

The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) Spring Trade Event welcomed a record number of retail members through its doors on 5 and 6 March. The two-day show returned to Birmingham, where members came together to trade and network. Once again, there was a range of exclusive commercial deals, such as increased discounts and extended payment terms, only available on orders placed over the course of the event. For the first time, the Company of Master Jewellers introduced a formal retailer networking event on the Saturday evening, with an interactive presentation from retail consultant Ed Ferris.

Ben Massey, principal officer at the NAJ, said: “We were delighted by the volume and quality of entries for this year’s NAJ Awards, which will take place at the NAJ Summit in June. All the finalists impressed us with their commitment to excellence and creativity over the past year.
