Jewellery Show, the new dedicated jewellery trade event organised by Closer Still Media, has formed a partnership agreement with the design and intellectual property campaigning organisation Anti Copying in Design (ACID).
The jewellery industry will come together at ExCeL London on September 5 and September 6 to be inspired, learn and trade.
This new partnership allows design-led exhibitors from the show to join ACID at a preferential rate and gain access to its member-only benefits. To be a part of the ACID community, potential members must be designers or have a design capability, and the majority of their products must be designed either in-house or by commissioned designers. Creating a safer trading environment, ACIDâ€™s logo is not only a real symbol of deterrence, but also reflects a positive voice for IP creation.
â€œWe are delighted to announce our new partnership with this highly respected and influential organisation”Jewellery Show sales director Alison Balshaw
Jewellery Show sales director Alison Balshaw said: â€œWe are delighted to announce our new partnership with this highly respected and influential organisation. Joining forces with ACID is a key foundation for us and, in turn, will provide our exhibitors with significant help and advice on supporting their original designs, should they need it. Weâ€™re excited about helping to build awareness for ACID within the jewellery market as well as providing a seminar platform where ACID will be able to inform and educate exhibitors and visitors on how to use their intellectual property rights to grow their businesses.â€
ACID CEO Dids Macdonald OBE added: â€œThe UK jewellery sector has many talented and creative designers whose skills and craftsmanship are much revered. The importance of protecting the precious intellectual property they create is paramount to maximising growth, and itâ€™s great to see Closer Still Media reinforcing this in our new partnership, which we value.â€
