Jan. 10 marks the opening of registration for the 2023 edition of the JCK show in Las Vegas. Returning to the Venetian Expo & The Venetian, JCK is scheduled to run June 2–5; with Luxury taking place May 31–June 5 (by invitation only May 31–June 1); and Gems and JCK Talks happening June 1–5.
For 2023, the show will revolve around an innovation theme, inviting its attendees to discover and source new products from global brands while experiencing in-person learning and networking events.
“Coming off a momentous and celebratory year with record-breaking attendance and very high satisfaction scores, JCK is the place where connections are made, trends are discovered, major industry news is announced—and ultimately—where the most business happens in every major facet of the jewelry industry,” said Sarin Bachmann, group vice president for RX Jewelry Portfolio, in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming new and returning jewelry professionals and providing the invaluable buying opportunities, education, and networking they need to propel their businesses forward. Whether you are a buyer, designer, manufacturer, supplier, or just entering the business, JCK will be the must-attend event of the year.”
JCK’s show floor for 2023 will be organized into 20 neighborhoods, allowing visitors to navigate their experience by product type within a diverse array of product categories and exhibitors including designer brands, gemstones, finished pieces, technology and equipment, and others. Attendees will enjoy thoughtfully placed lounges and daily pop-up events on the show floor, along with activations designed to create “Instagrammable” social media engagement and memories.
A new and improved Innovation Hub is planned for 2023, featuring technology, solutions, and products, plus expert tips and content to comprise the pinnacle of what’s next and trending for the future of innovation in the jewelry industry. Included in the Innovation Hub, the JCK Retail Innovation exhibitors (previously located on level 1) will take up residence next to the Showcase Stage, in an area where attendees can see, touch, and feel hands-on technology while learning about the latest innovations through the education on the Showcase Stage. The area will also include a dedicated Social Media stage where attendees can learn tips and tricks for content creation as well as the importance of standing out in social, courtesy of daily sessions featuring influencer-led discussions.
A robust JCK Talks schedule is also in the works for 2023, the educational program opens a day early on June 1 and runs through the third day of the event, June 4. Topics include marketing and sales, responsibility, DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion), sustainability, and more will be covered by expert panels offering key insights and education. The full schedule of JCK Talks will be announced soon.
The JCK Keynote presentation will take place on the morning of Saturday, June 3, a move from the event’s typical Friday morning timing. The highly anticipated JCK Rocks entertainment event returns to Sunday night, June 4, with the announcement of musical guest performance to be made soon.
Other JCK pillar events committed to return for 2023 include the Plumb Club 40th Anniversary Event (June 3), Diamonds Do Good Event (June 1), Le Vian Fashion show (June 4), and the Jewelers for Children Facets of Hope event (June 4).
Finally, a new and improved JCK Pro experience for 2023 will be offered, a badge upgrade option for retailers offering enhanced amenities including dedicated registration lines, a reserved area at JCK Rocks, a Pro-only lounge on the show floor, and more. The JCK Pro badge upgrade is available for attendees to purchase directly within the registration page.
