JCK Show Intensifies Watch Focus for JCK Las Vegas Jewelry Week 2012

Apr 05, 2012

Norwalk, CT (April 5, 2012) - JCK Events will have an increased watch presence, both in terms of exhibiting watch brands and attending watch buyers, at this year’s show.  The new focus is in response to the category’s overall growth and increased interest from buyers (in a pre-show survey, over 50% said they were interested in both jewelry and watches when thinking about planning their appointments for JCK). Watch brands will exhibit at LUXURY, Swiss Watch, and Watches at JCK – the newly renamed Hall of Time.  Together the three arenas will cover the full range of product offerings in the industry.

“The watch category has always been a great source of enthusiasm for our show, with Swiss Watch and LUXURY setting the bar for excellence in this market. Now we are even more excited to have a full roster of brands exhibiting between those two shows and the newly evolved Hall of Time into Watches at JCK. We feel that this breadth of product will be of great value to the watch buyers who will be in attendance at this year’s show,” says Yancy Weinrich, Industry Vice President. “The impressive list of exhibitors new to the Show this year includes Bering, Cover, CX Swiss Military, Dubey & Schaldenbrand, Escada, Holler, Marea, Max Watch Mulco, Nivrel, Paris Hilton, Police, Savoy, and Timberland.”

In addition to the surge in watch brands exhibiting at the show, JCK has augmented its watch-specific features and content for attendees. An open lounge will be set up for buyers in the Watch section on the JCK show floor, inviting retailers to relax and network during the show; a plethora of watch seminars, led by Thomas Schumaker of the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute, have been added to the show’s educational program; and daily happy hours will be hosted in the Watch Lounge at JCK.

Watches at JCK will take up residency in the Bayside Exhibit Hall on Level 1 of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center; watch brands exhibiting at LUXURY can be seen in the LUXURY Ballroom on Level 2 of the Convention Center; and the brands of Swiss Watch can be seen by appointment in the designated suites of Mandalay Bay, THEhotel and Mandarin.
