GSI Hosts Seminar On US Retail Strategies In Dubai
GSI co-founders Debbie Azar and Mark Gershburg flank keynote speaker and Preferred Jewelers founder Andie Weinman. Gemological Science International (GSI) presented a breakfast seminar on ‘Successful American Retail Strategies’ at the DMCC headquarters in Dubai. The seminar was presented in collaboration with Preferred Jewelers, whose founder Andie Weinman keynoted the select crowd on Proven Successful American Retail Strategies.
GSI co-founder Debbie Azar said, “While our business is gemmology, we believe that our ability to bring knowledge from one part of the world to another is beneficial for our customers and for the industry as a whole. USA is the world’s largest and most mature market. Its experience is very relevant for everybody and especially for an up-andcoming market like Dubai and GCC.”
Weinman said, “The retail industry landscape is changing at an incredible speed with new innovations and developments; many old concepts are not applicable to today’s industry. Hence to break through the paradigm and recreate your vision in the jewellery market for the future, it is essential to build, grow and innovate.” She added that the increase in synthetic diamond mixing was another rising concern.
