Message from Martin Rapaport
I am writing to personally invite you to the RapNet Symposium that will take place in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at the W Hotel on Sunday and Monday, September 7-8, 2014. The symposium is free for all RapNet members with discounted rates to be provided by the W Hotel.
Our industry is facing unprecedented competitive challenges as rapidly advancing information and communication technology revolutionize the B2C and B2B environment. Consumers and business associates are using new technology in ways that successfully compete with traditional marketing, customer relations and sales.
Let me put it to you straight and simple. If you do not innovate the use of new technology, you are going to go out of business. We are sponsoring this free RapNet Symposium because I believe that it will help our clients get ahead of the technology curve and develop strategies that will ensure their future success. I strongly urge you and all RapNet members to attend this symposium.
The symposium will focus on how the jewelry trade should use new technology to grow their business and increase profits. It will provide a meet and greet opportunity for individuals and companies that trade diamonds over the internet. Special sessions for IT managers and software developers will also be provided.
Keynote speaker Robert Tucker will focus on vital innovation skills required to survive in today’s hypercompetitive e-World, and Martin Rapaport will discuss the future of electronic trading in the diamond and jewelry industry. Additional speakers from Yahoo!, Silverline, Hubspot, i-showcase and Jewelers Security Alliance will also make important presentations.
The RapNet Symposium is free to RapNet members who are urged to stay at the W Hotel. The conference fee for non-RapNet members is $350. Space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come basis.
