Known for their beautiful custom jewelry assembly and metal casting service, the Frank Billanti Casting Company is proud to announce that they are one of the sponsors for this year’s Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA) ConFab on Sunday, October 18th from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s Great Hall.
Short for “confabulate”, the MJSA’s ConFab is a conference focusing on all of the various aspects of the jewelry market. Jewelry manufacturers and designers from all over the country will come to New York City to talk about what exactly it takes to make it in the business and how to stay successful. Discussions and presentations will go over business planning strategies, company marketing and branding, diversifying tactics, and current trends in jewelry styles and sales.
Besides the formal events on the schedule, there will also be plenty of time to make personal connections with possible collaborators, business contacts, and mentors that will help you get on the fast track to honing your design skills and increasing your knowledge of business for potential projects in the future.
Along with the ConFab in the fall, the MJSA will be holding an Exposition in the spring on March 13th through the 15th at the Jacob Javits Center. Attendants will be able to view breathtaking pieces made by some of today's finest jewelers, including the Frank Billanti Casting Company. They will also enjoy a chance to commission works for their own collections. For more information on jewelry casting and the ConFab itself, call (212) 221-0440.
