NCDIA Membership Grows with New Benefits and Upcoming Events
Posted on New York, NY, July 9, 2012
Following a restructuring and relaunch earlier this year, The Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) has seen exponential growth since the Las Vegas shows last month. During JCK, the NCDIA hosted an extremely successful networking event with more than fifty attendees offering a fun and relaxed environment for members, from retailers to wholesalers, to interact and talk about Natural Color Diamonds. With the momentum gained in Las Vegas, the NCDIA is looking forward to a landmark year full of exciting events and developments directed towards both the industry as well as consumers.
The debut issue of the NCDIA newsletter “Natural Colors” dropped in Las Vegas and with positive feedback from NCDIA members. Dedicated to yellow diamonds, the newsletter was full of valuable educational information and selling tips from Thomas Gelb, NCDIA Educational Director. The next issue, slated to run in September, will be dedicated to Pink Diamonds, and the newsletters will continue to be published quarterly, highlighting a different color each issue.
Currently, the NCDIA is planning a consumer focused educational event set to take place in October at the Kristin Hanson Gallery in NYC. The first of its kind, the event would give NCDIA members the opportunity to display their products and interact with a hand-selected group of high-net worth consumers in a fun and social environment. The event will also feature discussions and panels featuring everything that the consumer needs to know when buying a natural color diamond.
The NCDIA is also in the process of developing a new website featuring interactive components for both members and consumers including the latest information on Natural Color Diamonds, podcasts, a design gallery, retail locater, and a membership login with a Natural Color Diamond request dashboard. The website is set to go live in early September.
