The list of Italian jewelry brands committed to exhibit at JCK Las Vegas and Luxury 2019 is growing, it was reported this week by JCK Events. With 54 exhibitors to date and an additional 20 expected to sign on before the year’s end, the Italian Pavilion is set to create an impressive presence.
With JCK Las Vegas making its return to the newly renovated Sands Expo Convention Center in June 2019, a new layout will be one of the many highlights of the show. The Italian Pavilion will be placed at the entrance of Level 2, adjacent to the Plumb Club and Luxury neighborhoods—prime real estate for its roster of jewelers.
“We received a great amount of interest from Italian vendors from the start, almost all of the exhibitors previously at JCK’s Italian section, as well as a few brand-new additions to the show, and we expect the number of exhibitor commitments to continue to grow in the coming months,” said event vice president for JCK and Luxury, Sarin Bachmann, in a press release. “As a leader in the industry, it is important to us that we are representing the entire industry, and the expansion of our international neighborhoods truly makes the show a global experience.”
A number of Italian jewelry brands will showcase in other areas of the show, in addition to the Italian Pavilion. Luxury, which begins on Wednesday, May 29, has confirmed its own share of Italy’s jewelers, including Alessandra Donà, Chimento, Evanueva, Fope, Nanis, Pesavento, Roberto Demeglio, and Zydo.
“Hasbani Gioielli, based in Milan, has been exhibiting at JCK Las Vegas from the very first edition of the show,” said co-owner Joe Hasbani, of the brand appearing in the Italian Pavilion. “We are thrilled for the show’s return to the original location at Sands Expo at the vibrant center of the Strip.”
In addition to news from Europe, the majority of JCK 2018’s exhibitors showcasing at AGTA are contracted to return, appearing in the new Global Gemstone neighborhood for 2019. JCK signed a multiyear partnership with the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICA) to debut within the new neighborhood, featuring its own 8,300-square- foot pavilion dedicated to its member exhibitors. In total, the Global Gemstone neighborhood will house more than 200 exhibitors across three ballrooms.
