Expo to Debut Gems and Jewelry Showcase

Expo New York, the flagship trade show of Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA), will debut the MJSA Gems & Jewelry Showcase in 2005. Connected to the Expo’s traditional halls at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, the Showcase will provide premium space and, with its soft-walled booths, an elegant atmosphere for finished jewelry manufacturers and gem dealers (including the American Gem Trade Association Pavilion).

The Showcase is expected to dramatically increase the number of Expo exhibitors and buyers. The expansion also will allow for live demonstrations of both equipment and processes on the show floor, from computer-controlled casting to laser engraving to the latest stone-setting and gem-carving techniques.

Established in 1968, Expo New York is the largest U.S. trade show devoted to jewelry manufacturing. For more information about the 2005 show, contact Bruce Coltin, trade show sales manager at (800) 444-6572, ext. 3023, or e-mail: bruce@mjsainc.com.
