The eighth annual LUXURY by JCK and The JCK Shows’ inaugural PREMIERE event both will take place at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino in Las Vegas May 28 to May 31. All registered retailers for either LUXURY by JCK or PREMIERE will enjoy the benefits of shopping both events with one badge.

LUXURY by JCK and PREMIERE are by invitation and are tailored to meet the purchasing needs of high-caliber jewelry retailers and the companies that sell to them. They include networking breakfasts, lunches, cocktail parties, dinners, and evening entertainment.

A welcome reception sponsored by PREMIERE will take place at the pool area of the Venetian on May 28 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The Salon Collections will open May 29 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and feature an afternoon cigar rolling and wine tasting area sponsored by Departures magazine.
