JCK Las Vegas 2010 has extended its deadline for 2010 Design Center applications to Friday, Nov. 6, 2009.
Design Center applications are reviewed by the Design Center Committee, a group of designers, retailers, industry associations and consumer and trade magazines editors.
Applicants will be considered for the "Rising Star" area within the Design Center if they’ve never exhibited in a national jewelry trade show before. Each year, JCK Las Vegas features eight Rising Star designers.
New for the 2010 event, retail buyers will have a chance to meet the "Rising Stars" on Monday, June 7. During the entire day, jewelry retailers can meet one-on one with each Rising Star in a private setting to discuss their work, inspirations, materials used and how a design turns into a piece of jewelry.
