In June, JCK will debut Jewelers Source by JCK, a year-round online business-to-business jewelry marketplace powered by BOSS Logics Live, the established leader in virtual jewelry meetings.
Reed Exhibitions, which owns JCK and JCKonline, issued the following statement:
Jewelers Source by JCK will take the jewelry industry to the next level of innovative sourcing. Qualified buyers will have access to discover products and brands and conduct true-to-life virtual meetings with jewelry designers, suppliers, and service providers from the entire global jewelry industry.
“JCK is thrilled to bring the industry a cutting-edge, innovative solution and all-encompassing marketplace for connection, collaboration, and presentation designed to enhance the experience between buyers and vendors in between live trade events,” said Sarin Bachmann, group vice president, Reed Jewelry Group, in a statement. “By partnering with BOSS Logics to create state-of-the-art technology for both searching and discovery, as well as utilizing their best-in-class high-definition meeting conferencing, which mimics the in-person jewelry sales experience, it is possible to source new products, vendors, and trends year-round, and increase buying efficiency online as well as at our live events.”
Jewelers Source by JCK combines the reach of the industry’s leading business-to-business trade event with the industry’s leading digital technology, BOSS Logics Live, resulting in the most comprehensive and inclusive marketplace for the entire jewelry industry globally. The platform is not limited to JCK exhibitors and show attendees; all industry buyers and suppliers are welcome to apply.
Zach Lipsky, founder and president of BOSS Logics, said, “The future of sales meetings is a combination of in-person and remote, so we worked with David Yurman and designed BOSS Logics Live with modern jewelry designers and retailers in mind. BOSS Logics Live is revolutionizing the jewelry industry, offering vendors and retailers the chance to expand their reach globally while making lasting connections with clients virtually. We are excited to collaborate with the leading jewelry trade event as we digitally transform the industry.”
Added John Green, president and CEO of Lux Bond and Green, “We’ve been using BOSS Logics Live since 2011 and they have transformed the way we conduct business at our stores. The technology is cutting-edge and more personal than the typical online meeting platforms that exist. It is geared to the needs of a modern jeweler and savvy shopper—and we are eager for this meeting technology to coincide with the launch of JCK’s new B2B marketplace. It is great that JCK is helping propel the industry forward and providing solutions to fill the gaps between shows.”
