Addition to show staff + co-location + new dates + easier access
(NEW YORK) – JA New York is pleased to announce an addition to their New York City-based team. Judy Karlin-Grant has been named Retailer Liaison of The JA New York Shows and will be responsible for spearheading the show’s Hosted Buyer Program, as well as serving as the main point of contact for all established and prospective retailers.
Karlin-Grant, who will also continue in her role as Client Liaison at RSP Media, brings with her over 40 years experience in the fine jewelry industry. As a former Show Director of JA New York Shows, a consultant for designers and manufacturers, an organizer of IJDG, as well as an exclusive distributor of La Nouvelle Bague, Karlin-Grant’s extensive experience covers all aspects of the industry, putting her in a unique position to successfully fulfill her new role at JA New York.
“I’m really excited to take on the role as Retailer Liaison for JA New York,” said Karlin-Grant. “This show is such a strong, important event, and it’s right in the backyard of many of our key retailers; I’m thrilled that I’ll have the opportunity to convey this message to the masses. I’m also very much looking forward to working with the entire JA New York team!”
“Along with the co-location with MJSA and the Antique Watch and Jewelry show, Lueur, and the change in dates to March, Judy’s involvement is going to go a long way to making our March event one of our most robust and energetic shows ever,” explained Drew Lawsky, Group Show Director for JA New York Shows. “We’re already sensing a reinvigorated energy and interest among the exhibitors we’re in touch with on a daily basis, and Judy’s presence on our team will make it easier and more attractive than ever for retailers to attend our shows. Given that this is a year-round position, Judy will also enhance our ability to be in communication with our retailers throughout the year, thereby benefiting all of our shows.”
Further contributing to the ease of attending JA New York, MJSA and Lueur is the long-awaited expansion of the 7 Subway line to the brand new 34th Street Hudson Yards Station, located mere steps from the Javits Center entrance. All three shows are taking place March 13-15th, 2016 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
