New Day Pattern for 2009 JCK Las Vegas Shows

JCK Events announced plans for a new day pattern for the 2009 Las Vegas Events. LUXURY & PREMIERE will take place Tuesday, May 26 – Friday, May 29, JCK Las Vegas will take place Saturday, May 30 – Tuesday, June 2, and Swiss Watch by JCK will take place Friday, May 29 – Tuesday, June 2.

This new day pattern is designed to help support those LUXURY & PREMIERE and JCK Las Vegas customers who observe the Shavuot Holiday which falls on Friday, May 29, 2009. We have consulted with our JCK Events Advisory Board and many of our customers and concluded that the dates of both LUXURY & PREMIERE and JCK Las Vegas will change, each becoming a 4-day event. We will extend the operating hours of JCK Las Vegas to give both exhibitors and retailers the same amount of time to conduct business.

We are sensitive to our exhibitors and retailers who observe the Jewish Holiday of Shavuot; we are shifting the opening day of JCK Las Vegas making it convenient for those who observe, to participate in the Event, said Dave Bonaparte, Group Vice President, JCK Events. After reviewing the day pattern and understanding the expense exhibitors and retailers incur, the larger event JCK Las Vegas will be one day shorter, thus saving exhibitors and retailers the extra day of travel expenses.  Following are the exact dates for each of the Events that will be held in Las Vegas:

LUXURY & PREMIERE will take place from Tuesday, May 26 – Friday, May 29, 2009 at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas with the opening night reception scheduled for Monday, May 25, 2009.  LUXURY & PREMIERE is an invitationonly event offering an exclusive collection of the finest jewelry brands from the world’s most renowned designers and manufacturers.
