Suzanne Robinson, VM + Events Director, shared, “VM + Events is proud to support this year’s NAJ Awards by sponsoring the Marketing Campaign/Event of the Year. Having assisted many UK jewellery businesses with their events and marketing activities over the years, we know a thing or two about what makes a great event, and we can’t wait to celebrate with the finalists at this year’s awards.”

Nicola Meadows, Divisional Managing Director of Autumn Fair organiser’s Hyve Group plc said, “We are extremely proud to sponsor the NAJ Salesperson of the Year Award, championing the key sales personnel who are integral to their business and continually pushing the boundaries. As the UK’s leading retail marketplace with an established heritage in jewellery, we welcome the opportunity to award the people who are really making an impact in their business.”

Finally, Andy Hughes, Stirland Paterson Group Sales Director, stated, “We are delighted to be able to support the NAJ Awards, and particularly Store Design of the Year. The five finalists have all demonstrated a keen eye for detail and a focus on the customer experience, something we understand with the digital and print solutions Stirland Paterson provides.”

Principal Officer of the NAJ, Ben Massey, concluded, “It’s fantastic to see such a diverse range of businesses support this year’s NAJ Awards. We are excited to share the celebrations with a host of fantastic sponsors, and we look forward to welcoming members and guests on June 25th to reveal the winners.”
