What is GemCrowd?
GemCrowd is the first online gem, jewelry and mineral tradeshow. Our goal is to bring all the world under one roof. GemCrowd is not a marketplace. Gemcrowd is not a supplier. Gemcrowd combines the Tucson tradeshow culture with the power of a secure online B2B community. Here’s how it works:
- Represent your business with an online booth of your idea and design
- Showcase your products to your existing customers
- Attract new customers every day
- Generate year-round sales
- Sell live, or display your goods catalog-style
- Connect with thousands of international users 24/7
GemCrowd is not a one-size-fits-all marketplace!
Because we are a secure online B2B community, GemCrowd adapts rapidly to customer needs and requests. Your booth is the gateway to solid and secure business transactions with international buyers and sellers, manufacturers, miners and distributors.
- Buyers shop at leisure and reorder with one click
- Buyers can slow down, return to your booth and purchase any time
- Buyers can see your products like never before
- Direct messaging system with customized invoicing
- Built-in secure shopping cart access
- Keep your new catalogs and designs secure with private Showrooms or vault that can be seen by invitation only
Doesn’t everyone love the Tucson “experience”?
It’s legendary. The annual gem and jewelry tradeshow Tucson “experience” connects you with colleagues, experts, miners, manufacturers, enthusiasts, collectors, artists, designers and professionals in a way that is unlike anything else in the world. You can find anything from raw materials formed by mother earth to the finest stones and jewelry created with human artistry in Tucson, and all of it – from every corner of the world – is available to everyone to see, touch and buy.
For members of the gem trade, the excitement of Tucson and other internatiotounal tradeshows is a fun mix of treasure hunting, friendship, competition, discovery, and inspiration all in one thrilling package. It’s too bad something this unique happens just once a year, isn’t it?
Now, you can attend the first 24/7 online international gem show!

How do we know you’ll love GemCrowd?
Tradeshows are competitive, and you’ve got to invest in pre-event promotion, advertising, direct mail and email newsletters, and even then, sales are never a guarantee. On top of making good direct sales, finding new clients and partnerships is another way to grow your business at a crowded event.

Retain customers, save time and money
Preparing to debut your new discoveries, materials and designs at a tradeshow can be complicated and costly. Miners, cutters, craftsmen, artisans, manufacturers, and designers work all year to build inventory. Specialty and international vendors are faced with the expense and difficulty of getting credentialed to travel. Sometimes, you’re forced to pass on a show and when this happens, a once-good customer may buy elsewhere. Nobody wants this to happen, so why not stay in contact using GemCrowd?
