(NORWALK, Conn.) – Attendee registration is open for JCK Tucson 2020 at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa from Wednesday, February 5 to Saturday, February 8, 2020. Taking place during Tucson Gem Weeks, JCK Tucson is a destination unto its own, showcasing an array of finished design jewelry, one-of-a-kind collections, loose gemstones, lab-grown and equipment, along with education, networking, inspirational experiences and more.
“JCK Tucson is an intimate and unmatched destination where artisanal designers and unique vendors join forces with retailers in a stress-free environment to discover, inspire and do business,” says Kate Youngstrom, Event Director, JCK Tucson. “The show is designed to deliver engaging events that educate and connect the jewelry community.”
Embarking on its sixth year, JCK Tucson brings sophistication with a twist of Southwestern charm to buyers looking to experience a JCK event outside of the larger Las Vegas shows. The Arizona ballroom will continue to focus on design, while the Tucson ballroom has been reimagined to have distinct destinations based on key product categories including: Lab-Grown, Colored Gemstone, Equipment and Technology/Services and Finished Jewelry.
“JCK Tucson is a small, curated environment of designers, from emerging to established. People who attend this show appreciate jewelry and the work and materials that go into it, and are able to easily walk the entire show floor. Each designer stands apart for their point of view, and as an exhibitor, it is nice to feel like your brand is not getting lost,” states designer, Dana Bronfman.
Highlights for 2020 include a premium exhibitor list, special events, connections through JCK Match and an unparalleled location.

JCK Tucson offers attendees a rich schedule of events, featuring experiential activations, intimate fireside educational talks – including topics like men’s jewelry trends, sustainable practices and lab-grown diamonds, happy hours and networking gatherings like the highly anticipated Gems After Dark. Additionally, attendees are encouraged to soak in the full beauty and spirituality of their surroundings with morning hikes and the daily Mitakuye Oyasin Morning Ritual, an opportunity to make their intentions known to the universe through the traditional burning of sage, and end the day with an outdoor sunset tequila toast.
Fostering connections and relationship building is a top priority for JCK, and the continuing program of JCK Match will connect buyers with exhibitors who offer the products and services they are seeking. Buyers will receive personalized exhibitor and product recommendations based on the information they share while registering for their badge. The program was developed to help buyers more efficiently discover new designers and brands that offer the products their customers are seeking, in an intimate, pressure free environment.
“JCK Tucson is the perfect reprieve from the immensity of Tucson’s Gem Shows,” says Jamie Hollier of Balefire Goods. “It’s more like a guided experience. This is due to the thoughtful connections JCK Match provided prior to the show to ensure you find vendors that are a good fit for you, the careful curation of designers and suppliers, and the unbeatable location!”
Located less than ten minutes from downtown, JCK Tucson provides attendees with daily, expanded complimentary shuttle services to and from the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort and other Downtown Tucson Gem Week events. Shuttle schedules will be announced in 2020.
