10 Reasons The SMART Show Rocks


One of the industry's best vendor lineups – and this year, our biggest selection ever, with more than 500 booths hosting your favorite designers and manufacturers.


A world-class education program based on the contents of INSTORE magazine and featuring your favorite contributors. With more than a dozen sessions each day right on the show floor, it couldn't be more convenient for you to learn.


This year we're bringing in a special group of experts to help you boost your skills at the most essential activity that takes place in your store: selling. We're calling them the Monsters of Sales, and they're led by multiple New York Times best-selling author Jeffrey Gitomer.


Navy Pier. Undoubtedly, one of the coolest trade-show venues in America. A historic site you've got to see at least once.


One of the industry's best parties, the Chicago Cool Blast, where on Sunday night, more than a thousand of you take over the Navy Pier ballroom on the edge of Lake Michigan for an epic night of eating, drinking and dancing ... and networking, too.


An atmosphere of sharing. Just like we do with INSTORE, at the Smart Show, we encourage jewelers to share their best ideas and give them a platform to do so.


Plenty of interactive exhibits – called Smart Stations – for you to explore as you wander the show floor. Around every corner is a learning experience.


A friendly show layout. All exhibitors are located in a single hall, with key product categories organized by pavilion. It couldn't be easier for you to get where you're going, and see who you want to see.


The SMART Show is the only Midwestern show to offer the country's top high-end designers, as well as rising stars of the design world, in our INDESIGN and Generation Next pavilions.


One of the most extensive educational programs for custom jewelers anywhere in our Bench Experience. Featuring hands-on exhibits throughout the show. Plus our exciting live bench competition, the Bench Pressure Challenge.
