The JCK Events team announced today that JCK Las Vegas 2019 will feature a new International Gemstone neighborhood, an expansion made possible by the show’s relocation to the Venetian/Sands Expo and Convention Center.
The addition, which will house gemstone suppliers from around the world, comes at the request of the show’s buyers and promises to offer an opportunity for those buyers to source directly from dealers both domestic and international. The new neighborhood will open on June 1, 2019—one day before the opening of JCK Las Vegas—and run through June 5.
“Adding an international presence for gemstone suppliers offers a unique, unrivaled opportunity for our vast audience of 20,000-plus domestic and global buyers,” says JCK senior vice president Yancy Weinrich. “With the move back to the Sands Expo and Convention Center, we have the opportunity to offer new experiences and features in an upscale, more buyer-friendly environment.
“We are building our 2019 event together with the industry, to deliver a marketplace that will be customizable and addresses the challenges buyers face in today’s market,” Weinrich adds. “For our exhibiting customers, our mission continues to be about delivering qualified buyers to JCK by expanding our reach into new markets, with new partnerships and strategic initiatives designed to increase buying on our show floor.”
