(NORWALK, Conn.) - JCK Events has announced it will enter the Tucson market by transforming the B2B G.L.D.A. Tucson Show, bringing a new opportunity for buying, networking, and learning to the broader jewelry industry. The new JCK Tucson show is held at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort, a 4-Diamond mountaintop retreat, and Tucson’s best, during the Tucson Jewelry Weeks. Covering finished fine jewelry, and featuring both luxury and design areas within the show, it is a fitting addition to JCK’s portfolio and one which will augment its position in finished fine jewelry shows. The new JCK Tucson show will take place February 3-8, 2014.
The G.L.D.A. Show (The Gem & Lapidary Dealers Association) has been an established wholesale gem & jewelry show that focuses on finished fine jewelry, a complement to the surrounding B2B offerings in Tucson (AGTA and GJX) that thousands of suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers take advantage of.
“JCK Tucson will cover the finished fine jewelry segment and feature luxury and design exhibitors, which will provide a new opportunity for exhibitors within the built in audience already visiting Tucson,” says JCK’s Yancy Weinrich. “The JW Marriott Starr Pass provides an opulent setting and environment for both exhibiting and networking beyond the show floor - with the outdoor patios, mountainous backdrop, golf course and spa; it is the place to stay while in Tucson.”
Arnold Duke President of the GLDA adds, “JCK coming to Tucson will bring new exhibitors and buyers. This is a win-win not only for the jewelry industry but the city of Tucson.”
