Reed Exhibitions, owner of JCK, LUXURY, and Jewelers International Showcase (JIS) branded events, has announced the launch of a new jewelry event in response to the overwhelming demand of a cash-and- carry presence at its global jewelry shows. The event, JIS Exchange, will take place at the newly renovated Tropicana Las Vegas Resort and Casino June 3–5, 2016, during jewelry week. The Tropicana recently underwent a $200 million renovation and is in close proximity to Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, home to JCK Las Vegas.
With more than 36 years of experience, JIS brings its legacy and established heritage in the cash-and-carry business, combining its in-depth knowledge of the at-show delivery market and respected name within the community. “The JIS brand name has been well recognized in the jewelry industry as the pioneer and leader of the cash-and-carry format,” said JIS Events industry vice president Jordan Tuchband in a press release. “The JIS Exchange, in partnership with JCK, will bring that expertise to Las Vegas Jewelry Week to provide an outlet for the growing demand for this type of jewelry trade show format. This brand-new trade event will exclusively cater to those manufacturers and retailers who are looking to take advantage of the incredible convenience and inventory flexibility that the JIS Exchange will provide.”
While serving as a location for the JIS brand and cash-and-carry newcomers to Las Vegas Jewelry Week, the event will also feature additional immediate delivery focused exhibitors that were previously located in JCK’s 2015 Exchange Pavilion. “The partnership with JIS for an at-show delivery event couldn’t be more perfect,” said Katie Dominesey, industry vice president of JCK Las Vegas and JCK Tucson. “With the impressive growth of JCK Las Vegas, it was time to give our Exchange exhibitors and attendees their own space to grow and do business and dedicate resources behind the event to bring in even more buyers and enhance the offerings during Las Vegas Jewelry Week.”
Exclusive shuttle service will be available between JCK Las Vegas and the JIS Exchange during Las Vegas Jewelry Week, ensuring an effortless way for retailers to visit their favorite suppliers and discover new ones at both locations.
