Following the news last week that Reed Exhibitions, owner of JCK Events, had purchased Jewelers International Showcase, owner of JIS Miami, JCK Events announced today that it will launch LUXURY Miami alongside JIS Miami in October.
Both events will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center. LUXURY Miami will be Oct. 13–16, and JIS Miami will take place Oct. 15–18. The LUXURY event will feature 60 brands in a “salon setting.” It will be invitation-only for the first two days and open to all JIS buyers the second two days of the show.
The Miami LUXURY event will focus on the Latin American market, with a hosted program for high-end retail stores in South America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. High-end U.S. and international retailers will also be welcome.
“We are very excited about LUXURY’s inaugural event in South Beach, Miami,” said Sarin Bachmann, event director for LUXURY. “Miami is quickly becoming Latin American’s business hub and the preferable location for this market, and being alongside JIS offers unparalleled buyer convenience.”
“Conveniently located in the heart of South Beach, this environment is perfectly suited for LUXURY’s retailers and vendors,” she said. “We have chosen the most upscale hotel accommodations South Beach has to offer, surrounded by highly rated restaurants and a trendy nightlife.”
