The Bridge: On-Trend Fashion Jewelry at Accessible Price Points
There is quite the list of exciting new things coming to JCK Las Vegas for 2016 (you can read all about that here). One of these things is a brand new neighborhood: The Bridge. Located on Bayside, Level 1, The Bridge is all about on-trend fashion jewelry at accessible price points—a bridge, or middle ground, between costume jewelry and high-end fashion jewelry. You must be looking to beef up your price-point category for the upcoming holiday season, and this is where this fabulous neighborhood comes in. One visit to the trendiest neighborhood around and you'll come away with a bevy of selections for all of your shoppers, from the fashion-hungry to the classic, budget-conscious, and self-purchasing. But if I haven't said enough to convince you to put The Bridge on your list of must-dos this year, this preview ought to spark your interest.

Planning Made Easy
Planning your JCK 2016 experience is essential, this year more than ever! The expansion of Mandalay Bay Convention Center is giving the 2016 show floor at JCK Las Vegas a new look.
Keep this map handy and find the NEW locations of your go-to suppliers before you arrive and NEW vendors you plan to meet with.
INSIDER TIPS: Pack your comfy shoes to at least walk to and from your appointments, and pack your favorite pair to change into once you've arrived at your destination and for networking events.
If you're staying at Mandalay Bay it takes about 20 minutes from the Mandalay Bay elevators to the Passport Neighborhood.
WALK: Walk through AGTA Pool Level to bypass the crowds and save 2 minutes.
RIDE: Want to save your feet? Hop on the Mandalay Bay Campus Shuttle for door-to-door service to the Convention Center.

Share your Passion at JCK
This year at JCK Las Vegas we're keeping things personal. We know JCK is like Christmas morning and you can't wait to go back to your store and refill your showcases (or restock your shelves)… BUT this year, we're making it more than that. We're asking you to share your passion outside of the jewelry industry at the first ever Passion Project at JCK.
The Passion Project at JCK is a series of speedy presentations presented by volunteers who will discuss topics close to their heart in conjunction with 20 slides that automatically advance every 15 seconds. The result is a fast and fun presentation lasting only 5 minutes!
