It’s just a little less than three months away, and we’re beginning to get a picture of what JCK’s LUXURY 2014 jewelry show will look like, with new opportunities for gathering and networking, entertainment, a first-ever award, and a must-attend gala event.
New to the lineup of exhibitors this year are Getana, Stroili Oro Group, Italian Design Srl, Krizanti, Andreoili, and Unrounds, to name just a few. The new brands showcase a bevy of designs from intricate rings popping with color to versatile diamond jewelry and exquisite bridal collections. Tacori will be joining Scott Kay in an exclusive setting that provides each brand the opportunity to entertain, sell, and network within their own intimate environments.
Several speaking engagements are sure to delight showgoers this year, with industry veteran Diane Warga-Arias (aka the Jewelry Activist) kicking off the festivities. The industry influencer advocates for high-quality standards across fine jewelry categories and serves as an in-the-know jewelry champion. (Catch up with Diane on her blog here.)
Also featured at this year’s show: the first annual LUXURY Retailer of the Year award, recognizing luxury retailers who best innovate and sell fashion and fine jewelry. Five finalists will be spotlighted throughout the show, where retailers and exhibitors can cast their votes. The winner will be announced during a special presentation on Thursday, May 29.
The annual LUXURY Gala will be more festive than ever, with a libation and hors d’oeuvre–filled cocktail party taking the place of the traditional sit-down dinner. But that’s not the end. Holders of a LUXURY All-Access badge will be given a ticket to Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson ONE, concluding their evening with a performance inspired by the King of Pop.
The LUXURY show will take place May 27–June 2 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. For more information, visit luxury.jckonline.com.
