Thank You for a Great MJSA Expo!

MJSA ExpoTo everyone who attended this year’s MJSA Expo, and to those who exhibited, presented, sponsored, and otherwise helped to make the 2018 show an outstanding experience—THANK YOU! Expo ended its three-day run at the Javits Center on March 13, and as it has ever since it first opened its doors 50 years ago, it offered opportunities to inspect and test the latest jewelry-making tools, supplies and services. It also featured world-class seminars and experts so attendees could put all of those tools, supplies, and services to the best use. We look forward to seeing everyone again at the 2019 Expo.
