Swiss Watch by JCK and the new LUXURY Watch will be sponsoring Time for Kids, the annual watch giveaway during the Jewelers for Children Facets of Hope event. Every attendee at the Facets of Hope event on June 5, 2016 at Mandalay Bay will be given a chance to win one of an array of donated watches. All of the watches will come from participants in Swiss Watch and LUXURY Watch.
“The Jewelers for Children Facets of Hope is an integral part of the activities during the JCK Market Week in Las Vegas,” said Yancy Weinrich, Sr. Vice President JCK. “Our exhibitors have been very generous over the years supporting the Time for Kids activity. It only makes sense that a watch giveaway be sponsored by the largest U.S. watch show, held during the largest U.S. jewelry show.”
Time for Kids was begun in 2000, and this year will mark the 17th time that watch exhibitors have generously supported the activity. The watches will be on display throughout the Facets of Hope event and sponsors will receive recognition on signage and during the program at the event.
“What a perfect way to build on our past success and reach a milestone with the support of the prestigious Swiss Watch and the new LUXURY Watch events by JCK,” said David Rocha, Executive Director of Jewelers for Children.
Swiss Watch is a unique four-day, appointment only, event that brings together premier Swiss Watch brands and invited retailers in the beautiful, upscale private Mandalay Bay suites. Swiss Watch takes place June 3-6, 2016 alongside JCK Las Vegas and LUXURY.
LUXURY Watch, new in 2016, is taking place Thursday June 2nd – Sunday June 5th, overlapping one day of LUXURY’s pre-show (by invitation only) event and then open three additional days during JCK Las Vegas. LUXURY Watch provides an intimate ballroom setting in a prime, convenient location with a luxurious central lounge. Perfect for fine timepiece brands seeking both an upscale appointment setting environment and the benefit of high end walk by traffic and for LUXURY retailers to easily meet with existing and discover new LUXURY Watch brands.
