GemFind serves the gem and jewelry industry. Management and support staff attends many of the industry’s leading trade shows. In first part of March GemFind will attend the ASCUS which is an ASC POS user group conference.

 

For the uninitiated, ASCUS conference will allow GemFind to network with other tech professionals. And, as many know, staying current on breaking technology is vital for any tech-related company to establish and maintain an edge on the competition.  That’s GemFind’s schedule for early March.

 

In early April GemFind will be exhibiting at and leading many retail jeweler seminars at the Chicago SMART Jewelry Show. It’ll be a busy spring event for GemFind, but that’s what it takes to be an industry leader.

 

If you can’t wait to see GemFind at these events to learn more about website and application services, call  800-373-4373.
