Here Comes … Another Jewelry Show; This One Has a Twist

Optimism was prevalent at Pier 94 during the Bridal 2005 show, sponsored by Lustre and Modern Jeweler magazines and Cygnus Expositions, despite light attendance from retail jewelers and about 90 exhibitors. "But the right retailers are here," explained Carrie Fraser, associate project manager, Exposition Division, Cygnus Business Media, Burnsville, Minn., about jeweler attendance at her company's new show. The idea behind this bridal-only show, which took place March 20–22, was to feature only merchandise and vendors that were appropriate for the bridal market, which can account for up to a third of jewelers' businesses. An impressive educational agenda, including speakers from InStyle Weddings, TheKnot.com, and wedding event planner Preston Bailey, also took place over two days of the show. Exhibitors were of luxury status, including Tacori and Imperial Pearls. Feedback from vendo
