JIS relocates 2017 October Show to Ft. Lauderdale



Set to open in just over two weeks, the JIS October 2017 Show will relocate to the beautiful, waterfront Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center after receiving news from the Miami Beach Convention Center that it would be unavailable to host the event due to status of the construction project and Hurricane Irma. The show will now take place over the same dates as originally scheduled (Sunday, October 8 – Wednesday, October 11, 2017).

To support the move, JIS will immediately invest $250,000 in new programs dedicated to easing travel concerns and delivering a successful event for all attendees and exhibitors. The investment will include an impressive buyer merchandise credit program, special retailer hotel hosting opportunities, and travel assistance. Each day, there will be more than $50,000 worth of merchandise credits available to earn and spend with JIS October exhibitors.

In addition to the production of jewelry shows, JIS’s mission is always first and foremost to help jewellers and the industry, which is why JIS is an official partner of the Jewelers Disaster Relief Fund, created to help jewellers recover who have been affected by recent natural disasters. To learn more about the fund, donate, and/or submit yourself or a jeweller in need of receiving these funds, please visit GoFundMe.com/JewelersReliefFund
