The NAJ Summit

Whether you are a supplier, retailer, valuer or designer, The NAJ Summit is the perfect place to network, learn and do business. The Summit features a packed programme of events, workshops, and lectures under one roof. The four days aren't just about business; we have evening dinners to reconnect and have fun.

Supplier Showcase

With protected time in the programme, attendees had time to visit the Supplier Showcase and Gemstone Market to meet current and potential suppliers of products and services.  

Artisan exhibited at the NAJ 2022 Summit to officially launch the business. With this being the first exposure for Artisan at any trade event, we were both excited and nervous. However, it soon turned out we should have just been excited! The organisation was second to none and the quality of the visitors was amazing. The feedback from everyone we introduced Artisan and our many services to was only ever positive and we are already planning on how we can make 2023 even better.

It was a more intimate environment than a large exhibition and this gave everyone present the opportunity to get to know each other. The NAJ team was very accommodating and on top of everything. Their teamwork was impeccable!
