The NAJ’s 29th annual Loughborough Conference for all involved in our industry takes place over the weekend of Saturday 16 to Monday 18 September.

This Conference (held on the Loughborough University of Technology’s campus) is organised by the NAJ’s Institute of Registered Valuers and offers delegates a two-and-a-half-day residential event.  Those who cannot attend the whole event are most welcome to attend on a daily basis if they wish.

Plans for this year’s exciting programme of main presentations and workshops on valuing, jewellery design, gemmology, diamonds, auctions, silver, insurance, watches, etc., are already well under way.  We will also be repeating the “Welcome to Valuing” session introduced in 2016 and new for this year, we will be incorporating workshops under the NAJ’s new initiate to help valuers (and future valuers) operate and understand  “the business of valuation”. 

This year we will also be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Institute.

The brochure and booking form for the Conference will be available around June time but in the meantime please look out for updates in our on-line newsletter and our magazine, “The Jeweller”.

If you are interested in attending or would like more details (when they become available) please email the Conference Organiser at
