Mission Statement

The Santa Fe Symposium fosters community and provides a collaborative forum that drives technological and operational innovation across the jewelry-making industry. The industry’s most inquisitive minds gather to present and discuss research, to educate and learn, and come away with priceless, practical know-how.


Here at our annual Symposium, we have a mission and it’s rather straightforward. The Santa Fe Symposium® fosters community and provides a collaborative forum that drives technological and operational innovation across the jewelrymaking industry. The industry’s most inquisitive minds gather to present and discuss research, to educate and learn, and to come away with inspiration and practical know-how.

Started in 1987 and now in its 31st year, the Santa Fe Symposium® brought forth a notion that professionals from across the global jewelry market could interface their business practices and share their thoughts about the future. Over three decades later, the Santa Fe Symposium is now highly regarded as the premier conference to learn about new jewelry industry developments and latest first-hand research.

Each year, we ask professional organizations and businesses to consider participation in sponsoring this rewarding and thought-provoking event. Sponsorship of the Santa Fe Symposium® is an investment towards growth in our field, which is integral for the future of our jewelry industry as a whole.

Santa Fe Symposium® sponsors enjoy many benefits, including worldwide exposure and visibility to their brand. We invite you to join with other professional organizations and businesses currently supporting the Symposium that cultivates your ideas, your business and your designs.

Thank you for your consideration of support! Included in this letter are the different levels of sponsorship options, with all of the benefits you gain from becoming a Santa Fe Symposium® sponsor. If you have any questions about the sponsorship or the event, please visit www.santafesymposium.org, email events@riogrande.com or call 800.952.6222.
