JCK Events Takes Over G.L.D.A. Show

On May 24, JCK Events announced it had taken over the B2B G.L.D.A. Tucson Show with plans to transform it into a fine jewelry–centered event.

The new JCK Tucson show will be held at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort Feb. 3–8, 2014, during Tucson’s jewelry weeks.

“JCK Tucson will cover the finished fine jewelry segment and feature luxury and design exhibitors, which will provide a new opportunity for exhibitors within the built-in audience already visiting Tucson,” says Yancy Weinrich, JCK Events’ group vice president. “The JW Marriott Starr Pass provides an opulent setting and environment for both exhibiting and networking beyond the show floor. With the outdoor patios, mountainous backdrop, golf course, and spa, it is the place to stay while in Tucson.”

Arnold Duke, president of the G.L.D.A., said in a statement that the new show will “bring new exhibitors and buyers” and be a “win-win not only for the jewelry industry, but the city of Tucson.”
