JCK Events has revealed plans to launch JCK Virtual 2020.
Intended to be the largest and most comprehensive virtual jewellery trade event taking place this year, the online show will be free for jewellery buyers to attend.
With a theme of “Reconnecting,” the online event will take place August 10-14, 2020, and feature the best of JCK Las Vegas & Luxury virtually: from JCK Talks to product browsing and buying hours, virtual meetings, interactive networking, matchmaking and more.
While registration is not yet open, dates have been set for specific arms of the show:
- Monday, August 10, 2020 | Luxury, by invitation only
- Tuesday, August 11–Friday, August 14, 2020 | JCK & Luxury registered attendees
The event will offer a full slate of programming that will connect qualified jewellery buyers and professionals looking to discover what’s new, next and innovative for their business with thousands of JCK & Luxury exhibitors and partners, from the comfort of their home or office.
Attendees will be able to search for jewellery and watch products, retail technology and services from around the world; schedule appointments to meet via live video with vendors to learn about new products and to merchandise their stores for the Christmas season; receive custom product and vendor recommendations; and enjoy JCK’s education, trend reporting and engaging networking events.
“During these unprecedented times, JCK and Luxury’s main objective has been to support our community, to listen to our customers and to facilitate the personal and business connections that our industry is built on in the safest way possible,” says group vice president for JCK and Luxury, Sarin Bachmann.
She adds: “JCK Events has always been a platform to drive business and build relationships, and JCK Virtual 2020 extends this beyond the show floor. JCK Virtual, August 10-14, will be the week when the fine jewelry and watch industry comes together, schedules appointments and reconnects in a way never before seen, virtually.”
