JIS Miami is set to open its doors to the jewellery trade for the famous October Show, welcoming the largest attendance ever expected in its thirty six year history – for both the number of exhibiting companies and attending retailer buyers. Held at the Miami Beach Convention Center October 15 to 18, 2015, the October Show is the most important buying event of the year for jewellery retailers from Latin America, the Caribbean, Florida and many parts of the United States.
The growth and scale of the October 2015 Show is not by chance. With the acquisition by Reed Exhibitions – the world’s largest global trade show company and producer of all JCK Events – earlier this summer, the show has undergone a massive overhaul while maintaining all of its best characteristics that attract buyers and exhibitors; like its ideal South Florida location, timing, and the 18K Club for exhibitors offering 18k gold product. In addition to these fundamental attributes that have driven JIS success for years, a new list of features and amenities the jewellery industry has been craving for years – plus a number of things they couldn’t have imagined – have already been added to JIS by the new management team.
As stated by Reed Exhibitions’ Yancy Weinrich, Senior Vice President of Reed Jewelry Group, “Adding the JIS Shows to the Reed Jewelry Group portfolio is strategic in purpose, as we now have the ability to leverage our reach into expanded markets. With the acquisition, our access to Latin America, South America and Mexico has grown exponentially. With our increased resources we are able to bring key retailers from these regions to Miami for JIS while being able to provide dedicated programs for these markets at JCK & LUXURY in Las Vegas. Between the JIS events, JCK and LUXURY Shows, JCK Magazine and the new JCKOnline website, we are well-positioned to serve the jewellery industry year round with their buying and news related needs.”
Jordan Tuchband, Industry Vice President of JIS, is exceptionally excited for the JIS October Show and what the future holds now being a part of Reed Jewelry Group. After being with JIS for more than sixteen years, “JIS Miami has never seen a jewelry trade event of this magnitude with so many enticing new additions. Since the acquisition by Reed Exhibitions earlier this year, we have already witnessed a staggering amount of growth in the show. JIS Miami has always been a staple trade event in the jewelry industry, but now we are seeing more and more interest to attend and exhibit from our core regions of Latin America, the Caribbean, Florida, and many others from across the United States and beyond. It’s really impressive to watch the excitement spread in the industry about the show, and I’m counting down the minutes till we open the doors and welcome everyone to the greatest show in JIS Miami history.”
