FAQs

Do I register for each session separately?

Yes. You will first need to register for the Jewelry Business Forum: Welcome Session for Monday 1/18/2021. You will then be sent the full conference schedule where you can pick & choose which sessions to attend or register for all of them.

 

Will sessions be recorded?

All sessions will be recorded and available for registered attendees to watch within 30 days after the event. Recording access will be tied to your event login and cannot be shared.

 

How do I login during the event?

You will receive an email 15 minutes before each presentation with the link to the webinar.

 

Can I share recordings or presentation slides with my students?

No, our speaker agreements only allow access to registered conference attendees for 30 days. However, students are welcome to register and attend any sessions they wish.

 

Can we ask speakers questions during the presentations?

Panel format presentations will not be set up for Q&A in real time due to time and technology constraints. But all other presentations will have about 10 minutes at the end for Q&A. A session moderator will monitor questions posted via chat and channel them to speakers during that time. We will also be hosting discussions on Instagram after each session concludes. Follow the #JewelryBusinessForum hashtag to join in.

 

Where can I find more information on jewelry business best practices?

Each of the speakers participating in the Jewelry Business Forum is a recognized expert in their topic area. We encourage you to visit their business and organization websites to connect with additional resources. The Business section of the Halstead Jewelry Blog has dozens of articles on small business topics for jewelry artists. We also offer the free Jewelry Business Plan Toolkit, a resource guide to help you start writing your own business plan.

 

Will you be offering the Jewelry Business Forum again?

This event was developed in direct response to feedback from our audience on the need for more diverse leadership in the jewelry field as well as more free resources for business development. Thank you for your constructive comments. It has been a wonderful discussion that led to positive changes. We will be soliciting feedback from all conference attendees to determine whether this event should continue and how we could make it better.

 

Halstead can help you build your small jewelry business.
