HardRock Summit, the new trade show event that debuted last year, will return to downtown Denver, Colorado from September 8 - 11, 2022. The show will once again feature: “Evolution” for fine minerals and fossils and “Sparkle & Joy” a destination for fine gemstones and jewelry, along with dedicated exhibition areas for the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) and Denver Gem & Mineral Show – and for the first time, all under one roof at the Colorado Convention Center.
The Summit to provide opportunities for sales and networking with featured special exhibits and educational presentations. “We are excited to once again connect the fine minerals and fossils worlds to the fine jewelry and gem communities for both discovery and business. We are also looking forward to curating incredible special exhibits and presentations and working with museums, private collectors and leading experts to bring enriching experiences to all that attend,” states Christoph Keilmann, co-founder of HardRock Summit.
“Launching HardRock Summit last year, we were faced with many obstacles in bringing a new show to the market, especially with international travel restrictions and the timing of other events that had moved their traditional date patterns near the Summit's dates,” said Wolter Mehring, co-founder of HardRock Summit. “Ultimately, we were very pleased with the outcome and the overwhelmingly positive feedback provided by those that participated including exhibitors, buyers and other enthusiasts. We recognize we have created something very special and anticipate that our event will further unite the fine specimen industry with the jewelry and gems world – and provide new ways for our industry to thrive.”
Visitor admission is free for qualified trade show professionals and buyers. An admission fee will be required for the public. AGTA’s pavilion is not open to the general public.
