The Jewelers International Showcase (JIS) in Miami Beach is getting some new additions for its October event, offering a whole new facet of experiences to its attendees. The show takes place at the Miami Beach Convention Center October 15–18, and JIS is welcoming the additions of a brand-new Plumb Club pavillion, as well as the launch of LUXURY Miami by JCK, which will take place October 13–16 in a ballroom adjacent to the Plumb Club show. These new additions bring more to the already-established trade show experience that caters to the jewelry markets of Latin America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Florida, as well as many other U.S. states.
The Plumb Club will be debuting its first JIS pavillion with nearly 12,000 square feet of space, located directly inside the C Hall entrance at the Miami Beach Convention Center. “We selected the JIS October show because it represents the gateway to the multibillion-dollar jewelry markets south of the United States,” said Plumb Club executive director Lawrence Hess. “At no other jewelry event in the world will you find this unique mix of attendees.”
JCK’s inaugural LUXURY show in Miami will feature 60 of the finest jewelry brands, manufacturers, and designers in the industry in a glamorous environment, with exclusive hotel accommodations hosted by the SLS and Delano properties in South Beach. Premier retailers from Latin America, Mexico, the Caribbean, Florida, and other parts of the U.S. will make up the show’s primary attendance. “LUXURY Miami will offer a unique business opportunity and the ultimate buyer convenience taking place alongside the established JIS October event,” said event director Sarin Bachmann. “The event is perfectly timed to fill inventory needs for the tourist and holiday selling seasons and is a natural fit for LUXURY’s retail and vendor community.” LUXURY Miami will run October 13–16 (October 13–14 are invitation-only days).
