Virtual Rock 'N Gem Show launches to combat COVID-19 restrictions

Posted by Melissa robak on

A Canadian company is pioneering a new way to connect with their customers across Canada and around the world in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

With event venues and halls shuttered, and people encouraged to stay home to stay safe, this is not a good time to be in the event planning industry. Silver Cove and Canada Gem Shows typically host 23-27 events each year across Canada, with venue sizes ranging from 15,000 to 40,000 square feet. Upwards of 7000 people would join them each weekend to explore gemstones, minerals, beads, jewelry, fossils & home decor. 

But some ingenuity and creativity have inspired a new kind of Trade Show experience, where the gem show comes right to the customers home. The CanGems Virtual Rock N' Gem Show launches Dec 3rd thru 6th and operates completely online. It will have live sale auctions, workshops, live prep demonstrations, and information sessions. 

The CanGems Virtual Rock N' Gem Show will utilize multiple pages on Facebook and Instagram, allowing a seamless transition from event to event. Customers can choose to tune in all weekend long, or for specific events and workshops that catch their eye. All events for the inaugural event are completely free, although paid events may be added to future events. 

Silver Cove began offering live sale events regularly in early 2020 to continue to connect with customers when in person events were no longer an option. Customer response was immediate; with people loving the opportunity to come to a positive environment with no political or pandemic discussion. They have shared their incredible stories of problems, perseverance and triumph with hosts and fellow participants, creating a community atmosphere.

When it became apparent that the summer shutdown would continue through to 2021, the company decided to do what it does best, and put on an amazing event for mineral fans across Canada. The CanGems Virtural Trade Show is a four day mineral experience beginning Thursday Dec 3, 3020. 

Silver Cove & Canada Gem Shows are looking forward to the upcoming Rock N' Gem Show, and encourage everyone to get out there and support a Canadian Small Business... virtually!
