Show Information

For this year ONLY, JIS April 2017 will be taking place at the Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center, just 30 miles north of Miami Beach, due to a complete remodel of the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Referred to as “The Niche” show, the April event was originally established to support the buying needs of Latin America’s Mother’s Day season.  Not only is the timing ideal for Mother’s Day inventory purchasing, but it is timed perfectly for Father’s Day, Graduation celebrations, Wedding season, and summer tourism.   With three (3) full days to buy and sell, JIS January offers just-in-time delivery with both factory order writing and at-show delivery permitted.
