Trade shows in the jewelry industry are becoming virtual hangouts for the foreseeable future, with JCK being the next in the lineup to schedule a digital event. JCK Events just recently announced that their shows will be focusing on the theme of "Reconnecting." The trade shows will take place from August 10th to August 14th, while JCK Las Vegas starts August 11th following Luxury's August 10th start date.
Although registration is taking its time to reopen, according to JCK Events, the shows themselves will be free for “qualified, professional jewelry buyers.” Those who attend can place orders digitally as well as network and virtually browse all of the latest designs from exhibitors. Another part of the event includes sessions from JCK Talks.
The Luxury event will only be available to a limited group of attendees and buyers that have been invited. JCK Las Vegas, however, will be an open event for all who register during the proper period to do so.
“During these unprecedented times, JCK and Luxury’s main objective has been to support our community, listen to our customers and to facilitate the personal and business connections that our industry is built on in the safest way possible," said
JCK and Luxury Group Vice President Sarin Bachmann.
“JCK Events has always been a platform to drive business and build relationships, and JCK Virtual 2020 extends this beyond the show floor. JCK Virtual … will be the week when the fine jewelry and watch industry comes together, schedules appointments and reconnects in a way never before seen, virtually.”
Anyone who is interested in joining an in-person event can saunter over to JIS happening in October. The October dates in Miami include the 13th to the 16th.
Organizers of JCK Las Vegas 2021 have scheduled the event for Friday, June 4th through Monday, June 7th at the Venetian Resort and Sands Expo. This event will be featuring jewelry and watch exhibitors numbering in the thousands, showing off their latest and best inventory. Those in attendance can search for specific items of watches and jewelry. Video appointments can also be scheduled so attendees can get a closer look at what's new for the holidays.
