(NORWALK, Conn.) – As previously announced to their customers, JCK and LUXURY will shift their date pattern in 2017. The shift is due to the Shavuot Holiday which is observed by several hundred of JCK and LUXURY customers. LUXURY will open Friday, June 2 – Sunday, June 4 to invited retailers then continue to all retailers with the opening of JCK Las Vegas on Monday, June 5 – Thursday, June 8 at Mandalay Bay Convention Center. These dates are a shift to the traditional day pattern of years past. LUXURY will now open on Friday, June 2 and continue through the weekend as JCK opens on Monday, June 5 and closes on Thursday, June 8.
“First and foremost we wanted to acknowledge and respect our community of observers,” commented Yancy Weinrich, Senior Vice President of Reed Jewelry Group. “Additionally, in our conversations with retailers there was support for moving off of Memorial Day weekend, which we hope will allow those with scheduling conflicts around the holiday weekend to attend.”
Moshe Klein, Director of Sales of Julius Klein commented on his overwhelming support for the date shift. “As a long time exhibitor at LUXURY, we appreciate the thoughtful decision the JCK Events team made in order to accommodate observing the holiday of Shavuot. The new date pattern will allow the Jewish community that participates to observe the holiday without taking away from the important business that happens at JCK. We look forward to having a successful show and believe the date shift is a refreshing reminder that at JCK, it’s not just business, it’s personal. We have already seen overwhelming support behind this decision from our staff and many customers.”
