The Santa Fe Symposium pursues innovation across the jewelry industry: technological, operational and experiential. At the Symposium, the industry’s most inquisitive minds come together to present and discuss research, to share expertise, to connect with other professionals—to learn about what’s happening in every corner of this world-wide industry. Make plans now to join us in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and participate in the 34th Santa Fe Symposium. Meet and visit with your colleagues and experts from around the world, enjoy four days of knowledge and networking, build new relationships, and take invaluable information, ideas and know-how back to your business.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 we cancelled the 2020 Saul Bell Design Award ceremony, and we have not issued a Call for Entries for this year. In the past, SBDA judges traveled to convene in Albuquerque and the judging took place in close proximity over several hours. We continue to review options to offer a safe competition that will do justice to the hours of work, design innovation and technical excellence that go into your entries. We will share an update with you as soon as we can.
