Mandalay Bay show cancelled

The Strategic International Jewelry Show, which was scheduled to be held June 3-6, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, has been cancelled.

James E. Reed, president of the show, sent a letter, along with a complete refund, to companies planning on exhibiting at the show.

“At this point in time, we believe that our chances for having even 150 booths in the show is not realistic and as such a small size, the show will not provide the buyers or you with the profitable experience you deserve. Therefore, we feel that we have no choice but to cancel the event and refund the payments you have made to the show,” the letter read.
