With LOVE as its theme, JCK 2024 will demonstrate the passion and emotion of the jewelry industry and the close-knit community it fosters.

Attendees can expect to discover new ideas and new trends to take their stores to the next level while sourcing products from brands from around the world. Exciting networking events and opportunities to connect with industry leaders and peers will be abundant as well as thoughtfully created opportunities for new attendees to experience what separates JCK from other events.
As the most renowned jewelry trade event in the world, uniting the industry in Las Vegas for over 30 years, JCK is the place the industry convenes annually, delivering an exceptional experience that delights participants while propelling businesses forward in all major segments of the jewelry industry. With a collective attendance of over 30,000 industry professionals from 100 countries, JCK has become an award-winning show, that remains a vital event for the jewelry trade.
“We are coming off another incredible year, breaking attendance records once again and seeing very high satisfaction scores,” says Sarin Bachmann, Group Vice President for the RX jewelry portfolio and event leader for JCK. “We are continuing to raise the bar this year while bringing back the energy and excitement, celebrating LOVE and showcasing why we all love this industry. There are truly no connections like those made face-to-face. We are in the business of bringing people together and building businesses – through jewelry, inspiration and unmatched event experiences.”
JCK 2024 is set to provide even more unique happenings and serendipitous moments on the show floor – from innovative activations to knowledge-driven content.
JCK Talks will return to be even more robust featuring more speakers and sessions than ever before. On May 30, sessions will take place in the Venetian ballrooms off the show floor for a classroom-style setting, while more sessions will follow from Friday, May 31 – Sunday, June 2 on the Showcase Stage and Social Stage. The conference programming is carefully curated to deliver relevant and valuable insights from industry experts and thought leaders. The Thursday JCK Talks 101 deep dive topics will range from security to sales, DEI, marketing, and more. The Showcase Stage sessions include multi-perspective panels and dedicated single-speaker sessions. The ‘Track’ format divides sessions into eight main topics including: Hot Topics, Trends, Business Management, Sales, Innovation, Sustainability & Ethics, Development, and Marketing. In addition to the JCK Talks programming a to-be-announced JCK celebrity Keynote will take place the morning of Saturday, June 1.
Returning after a very successful debut in 2023 is the Social Stage where digital strategists, content creators and influencers will deliver daily 30-minute sessions – packed with actionable tips and tricks for content creation, social media engagement and standing out on social platforms. The full schedule of programming is available on the website and is updated weekly with announcements of sessions and speakers.
Some of the new and highly anticipated features for 2024 include:
A new Sustainability Summit will take place at JCK on Thursday, May 30 in the San Palo Ballroom on Level 3. The Summit will bring together key stakeholders in the jewelry industry to explore and promote a sustainable mindset throughout the entire supply chain. This two-hour event will feature a dynamic combination of a keynote address and a thought-provoking panel discussion with industry leaders and authorities in sustainability efforts. The Summit will provide participants with valuable insights into the consumer mindset on sustainability and actionable strategies to incorporate sustainability into their business practices.
Also new to JCK 2024, the Hong Kong Pavilion, historically located within the main show floor, will be opening on Thursday, May 30, and will move to the Level 1 Ballrooms. In a similar fashion to GEMS with AGTA, Hong Kong will now be accessible to attendees the day before the rest of the show for the opportunity to start networking and sourcing early.
JCK Rocks, the longstanding industry favorite event, will return once again on Sunday, June 2 at a new location Tao Beach and Tao Nightclub. Stay tuned for the Tao Beach headlining entertainment announcement.
To make the most of planning for JCK, attendees can explore exhibitors, events and JCK Talks schedules. Show-goers can take advantage of the JCK Mobile app (available on the Apple Store and Google Play and updated before the show), utilize ‘favorites’, and add to calendar functions on the website. This allows for favoriting exhibitors, mapping out education and evening event schedules, navigating the floor plan and planning ahead.
Attendees can elevate their experience to the next level when they upgrade to JCK PRO status – a pass to convenience, comfortability, and cutting-edge knowledge. JCK PRO unlocks access to dedicated JCK PRO registration (skipping the lines), on property discounted hotel rooms, an exclusive lounge and business center on the show floor, JCK PRO swag, reserved priority seating at JCK Talks, and more.
As a trade-only event, attending professionals are vetted and must meet certain criteria for access. This year, JCK will be vetting every individual attendee, not only the store/company’s main contact, and further raising the bar by investing even more into best-in-class security measures to continue to make the show secure. Bachmann notes, “We look forward to welcoming new and returning professionals in our community, focusing on providing the best buying experiences, unique moments, and most importantly, continuing to foster business in a safe and secure environment.”
