The UK Jewellery Awards (UKJA), the industry’s longest-running and most prestigious awards event, has confirmed the date, a brand-new venue and its headline sponsor for the 2018 event. Taking place on July 4, 2018, the awards ceremony will move from the Hilton Park Lane, where it has taken place for the last two years, to a bigger venue, offering guests a new experience.
As International Jewellery London gets underway for 2017, Ruth Faulkner caught up with event director Sam Willoughby to hear more about what visitors can expect from this year’s show. This is the 62nd year of IJL. How difficult is it to keep coming up with new ideas to ensure the show is current, fresh and relevant to today’s retail jewellery market? Over the years it is not just the events industry that has changed but the trade we serve.
Retail Jeweller caught up with designer Marina Skia, former International Jewellery London (IJL) KickStarter and People’s Choice Award winner, to find out about her IJL 2017 plans. Q: How do you feel about exhibiting officially for the first time at IJL? A: It is a very exciting to be back at IJL, this time not as part of KickStart but as individual brand. Things are moving forward! Q: How important was last year to be part of the KickStart line-up?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
