LUXURY & PREMIERE, the 10-year old invitation-only event for the finest jewelry retailers and manufacturers, will be held for three days rather than the previously announced four days, JCK Events said in a statement Wednesday. The new dates are May 27 – 29.
“After very careful consideration of the economic market and after talking to both manufacturers and retailers over the past several weeks, we have recognized that three days, instead of the previously announced 4 days, of a high-end show will better accommodate retailers ‘open to buy’ in these challenging times,” said Yancy Weinrich, vice president, JCK Events. “Our priority is to continue to support and facilitate the buying/selling dynamic, yet with current consumer demand affecting retailers’ inventory levels; we want to minimize any additional financial and time-constraint pressure on our customers.”
LUXURY & PREMIERE and JCK have been working with the vendors in Las Vegas and have been successful in lowering hotel rates—including such amenity-rich and convenient properties as Venetian and Palazzo Resort and Casino. LUXURY & PREMIERE and JCK will guarantee the lowest pricing at time of booking.
“We will continue to refine and redefine what retailers and manufacturers want at this year’s JCK events,” Weinrich said. “We will deliver the same level of service that our customers have come to expect now and in the future as the JCK Events are the global jewelry industry’s stage and platform to maximize connections.”
