WGC Launches Retail Sales Tools

Building on the “Glow with Gold” advertising campaign launched in 2001, the World Gold Council, New York, will debut new sales support materials at The JCK Show –Las Vegas, May 31-June 4. John Calnon, vice president, Jewelry-Americas for the Council, announced the launch.
