JCK has announced that registration for the 2020 JCK Tucson show is now open to attendees. Taking place at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa, the show will run during Tucson Gem Week, Wednesday, Feb. 5, to Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020. This is the event’s sixth year.
“JCK Tucson is an intimate and unmatched destination where artisanal designers and unique vendors join forces with retailers in a stress-free environment to discover, inspire, and do business,” said event director Kate Youngstrom in a statement. “The show is designed to deliver engaging events that educate and connect the jewelry community.”
Along with a premium exhibitor list comprising names such as Alishan, Alex Šepkus, Adel Chefridi, Belle Brooke, Mark Patterson, John Atencio, Sarah Graham, and Trésor (view the whole list here), the show promises to offer a number of special events and connection-making opportunities, too.
Much smaller than its sister event, JCK Las Vegas, JCK Tucson features two ballrooms in desert setting: the Arizona ballroom, which focuses on design; and the Tucson ballroom, which has been reimagined for 2020 to focus on key product categories including Lab-Grown, Colored Gemstones, Equipment and Technology/Services, and Finished Jewelry.
Not-to-miss events for the 2020 show include fireside chats with topics ranging from men’s jewelry trends to sustainable practices to lab-grown diamonds, as well as Gems After Dark, a highly anticipated yearly gathering. Guests of the show can also enjoy some low-key activities off the show floor, such as morning hikes, sage burnings, the daily Mitakuye Oyasin morning ritual, and an outdoor sunset tequila toast.
Returning in 2020 is JCK Match, a program connecting buyers and exhibitors based on product interests and needs. Buyers will receive personalized exhibitor and product recommendations based on information shared when registering for their badge.
