Since the announcement of its debut, Reed Exhibitions Canada, producers of the newly launched Collections by JCK (Sept. 24- 25, Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre) are reporting a great number of inquiries and interest in this inaugural event.
“We’ve been receiving a great response from suppliers who are interested in penetrating the growing Canadian and Northwestern US retail market,” said Scott C. Temple, managing director, Reed Exhibitions Canada. “As a result, Collections by JCK is 80 percent sold out with four months left until the event.”
Some of the key suppliers already on the floor plan include: Polar Ice; Corona; Makur Design; St. Moritz Watches; Bell Brooke Designs; SJI: Seth and Reid Collection; HRA; Noble Packaging; Master Design; Randor; Carats-Rare and Precious Gems; Mason-Kay. Jewelers Mutual Insurance is a Gold Sponsor of the event.
Shortly after hearing about the new Collections by JCK event, several VIP Retailers have committed to attending the event. These include: Ben Bridge; Ragnar Jewellers; Harlings;
Tiffany; Birks; Blue Ruby; Ann-Louise, Montecrisco, and Saks 5th Avenue.
In addition to the buying and selling opportunities, Collections by JCK will offer retailers an opportunity to grow their businesses through a premier business education program, strategic special events, and numerous networking opportunities.
There will be a free keynote program with Shane Decker, retail sales consultant, on how to “Recession Proof Your Business,” along with a never-before-presented industry track on “Training for Sales Associates.”
“Drawing upon the successful programs of the world-class JCK brand, retailers and
suppliers will experience first-class treatment. Retailers and suppliers are looking for a unique experience in their trading market, Vancouver, therefore, we have responded by offering more design-focused jewellery styles, merchandising inspiration and consumer trends,” Temple said.
