JCK Las Vegas and Luxury 2020 Will Take Place as Scheduled
The 2020 JCK Las Vegas and Luxury shows will take place as scheduled, said a statement from show organizer Reed Exhibitions and the Reed Jewelry Group.
JCK Las Vegas, the largest jewelry trade show in the United States, will kick off on June 2 and run through June 5, with Global Gemstones, the Exchange, and JCK Talks opening on June 1. Sister show Luxury starts on May 31 and runs through June 5. Both are happening at the Sands Expo & Convention Center and Venetian Hotel.
Last week, fears of the coronavirus forced the cancellation of two Swiss fairs, Baselworld and Watches & Wonder Geneva (formerly SIHH). Both were scheduled to occur next month.
There are currently no federal restrictions on meetings and travel within the United States, and little indication that the U.S. trade show business has been hurt by the concern over COVID-19. “So far, virus fears aren’t hurting Boston’s convention business,” said a recent article in The Boston Globe.
The show’s full statement, attributed to Sarin Bachmann, group vice president, JCK and Luxury for the Reed Jewelry Group (which also owns JCKonline), can be seen below.
