Couture, AGTA GemFair, Antique Jewelry Show Cancel Las Vegas Events

The 2020 editions of the Couture show, the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, and the American Gem Trade Association’s GemFair Las Vegas—all scheduled for the first week in June—have been canceled because of the ongoing spread of COVID-19.

Couture was scheduled for June 1–5 at the Wynn Las Vegas. The AGTA GemFair Las Vegas and the Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, which had been packaged together as “The Collective,” were slotted for June 1–5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The next Couture show will take place June 3–7, 2021, also at the Wynn. A Frequently Asked Questions page for Couture exhibitors can be seen here.

The New York Antique Jewelry and Watch Show is still scheduled to take place at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City July 24–26, organizers said. The 2021 Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show has been slotted for June 3–7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The AGTA GemFair has not yet announced its 2021 dates.

The trio of cancellations follows the postponement of Las Vegas Jewelry Week’s two biggest events, JCK Las Vegas and Luxury, which was announced two weeks ago.

Reed Jewelry Group, which runs the two shows, said it will soon announce new dates for the shows later in the year. Reed Jewelry Group also owns JCKonline and JCK magazine.

JCK Las Vegas was set to run June 2–5, while Luxury was scheduled for May 31–June 5. Both were set to take place at the Sands Expo and Convention Center and Venetian Hotel.

Other notable jewelry events that have been canceled this year include the American Gem Society’s annual Conclave and the Baselworld watch fair in Switzerland.
