The JCK Las Vegas and Luxury Shows will no longer take place this year.

The Reed Jewelry Group, which in March announced that it was postponing the June 2020 editions of JCK Las Vegas and Luxury, has now decided it will not hold the two shows this year.

The next JCK Las Vegas and Luxury shows will take place in June 2021 at their standard home, the Sands Expo Convention Center and the Venetian hotel.

To fill the gap, Reed Jewelry Group is planning a virtual event this summer. In addition, JCK will join forces with its sister show, the Jewelers International Show, which will take place Oct 13–16 2020 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Florida. All JCK exhibitors will be invited to participate in that event, which is the second largest jewellery show in the United States.

“After careful consideration, and with sensitivity to the concerns and feedback from the jewellery community, JCK made the difficult decision that the next edition of JCK and Luxury will now take place in June 2021,” shares Sarin Bachmann, group vice president, JCK and Luxury. “This decision was made in response to the unprecedented challenges faced by JCK’s jewellery community. We know this decision impacts the entire industry, and it was not made lightly. The show has always been more than just a show floor, it’s a platform that brings our entire industry together and reflects its exceptional strength, creativity, and diversity.”

Bachmann adds: “We are passionate about serving the greater good of this industry, and for 2020, that means providing options for our audience—from connecting through JCK virtually this summer, connecting in person at JIS in Miami in October, or joining us for JCK and Luxury’s return in June 2021 at our home in the Sands Expo and the Venetian. These are unprecedented times, but one thing we can guarantee: JCK and Luxury are in this with you, and we are here to support you. We will continue to listen to our customers and to facilitate the personal and business connections that our industry is built on, so we can all evolve and emerge stronger and better connected than ever.”

JCK and Luxury join a growing list of shows not taking place in 2020.

This includes Baselworld, which has been postponed to 2021, but its future remains in the balance following a mass boycott of leading brands, including Rolex.
