Join Us This Year for the 32nd Annual Santa Fe Symposium®

Because you are the kind of professional who keeps up with the fast pace of technology and keeps abreast of the latest research that affects your business, the Santa Fe Symposium® is exactly the place for you!

The Santa Fe Symposium® pursues innovation across the jewelry industry: technological, operational and experiential. At the Symposium, the industry’s most inquisitive minds come together to present and discuss research, to share expertise, to connect with other professionals—to learn about what’s happening in every corner of this world-wide industry.

Make plans now to join us in Albuquerque, New Mexico, May 20-23, 2018, and participate in the 32nd Santa Fe Symposium®. Meet and visit with your colleagues and experts from around the world, enjoy four days of knowledge and networking, build new relationships, and take invaluable information, ideas and know-how back to your business.

Eddie Bell

Rio Grande Executive Vice President Emeritus and Co-Founder of the Santa Fe Symposium®


Eddie Bell founded the conference based on his conviction that the jewelry industry benefits exponentially when experience, research and ideas are shared. From the beginning, the Symposium has served as an outlet for his drive to share knowledge and expertise with those who share his passion for the craft. Over the past 32 years, the Symposium has become the premier educational forum for jewelry manufacturing technology worldwide.

There is a reason I attend the Symposium year after year without fail: I learn more there in four days than I do in the rest of the year.
