Luxury by JCK/Premiere ended after an exciting three days, where attendance of high-end retailers nearly doubled from previous years. The retailers and manufacturers networked and conducted business, making the 8th annual LUXURY by JCK and 1st annual PREMIERE events extremely successful as reported by all who participated.
The final day of the show began with a talk by Bryan Dodge who addressed retailers and manufacturers and inspired them to enhance their own human potential and personal greatness for the benefit of their overall growth both professionally and personally. He redefined JCK saying, “The J is to join the team–align yourself with strong people; the C is for change–the market continues to change, so change with it; and the K is for knowledge, and continue to educate yourself and your staff.”
The American Gem Society hosted a closing reception where manufacturers and retailers enjoyed cocktails and prepared for the start of the 16th annual JCK Show ~ Las Vegas. Most of the exhibitors are also participating in the Luxury Collection and Prestige Promenade pavilions that are part of the JCK Show.
In 2008, the 9th Annual Luxury by JCK and the 2nd Annual Premiere by Prestige Promenade will take place May 27 – May 29, 2008, at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas.
