NEW JIS Exchange Set To Open Its Doors As The Premier Destination For At-Show Delivery During Las Vegas Jewelry Week

June 01, 2016

Norwalk, CT (June 1, 2016) –  The jewelry industry is set to descend upon Sin City as the 2016 Las Vegas Jewelry Week kicks off.  This year, one of the most talked about changes is the debut of the entirely NEW JIS Exchange – a trade-only jewelry event dedicated to retailers who are looking to take immediate delivery of finished jewelry right on the highly secure show floor.  Featuring jewelry product from all categories and something for every type of trade buyer, the NEW JIS Exchange runs June 3-6, 2016 at the beautifully remodeled Tropicana Las Vegas and is produced in partnership with Las Vegas Jewelry Week’s flagship event, JCK (both events are produced by Reed Exhibitions under the direction of Yancy Weinrich, SVP of Reed Jewelry Group).  

JIS (Jewelers International Showcase) is THE at-show delivery pioneer and brings four decades of experience from its already established Miami Beach, Florida events (occurring throughout the year every January, April, and October).  Industry retailers are thrilled for the first dedicated at-show delivery event in Las Vegas.  As stated by loyal JIS Miami attendee, Akbarali Aziz of A.K. International, “I love JIS Shows.  They are intimate shows and the variety of vendors are A+.  Every exhibitor that participates is highly motivated to build relationships and I love it.  It is a must attend show for anyone in the jewelry industry.  I am very excited about attending the brand NEW JIS Exchange in Las Vegas.  JIS Exchange will be my first stop when I arrive.”

JIS Exchange features an endless array of product offerings, featuring two full floors with more than 100 hand-selected exhibitors from JCK, JIS Miami, and beyond.  With the removal of the Exchange Neighborhood from JCK this year, as JCK is now a dedicated order writing show, many of the industry’s favorite exhibitors specializing in at-show delivery are now found at JIS Exchange.  Featured exhibitors include well-known names such as America’s Gold, William Lam, Gold-N-Diamonds, SimplexDiam, Sterling Forest, Comex, Haimove, Jewelry Land, and many more.  Visit jisshow.com/exchange/exhibitors for the full exhibitor listing.

Jordan Tuchband, JIS Industry Vice President, is extremely ready to open the JIS Exchange doors for the first time on Friday, June 3 at 9:30 AM.  “We are thrilled to give retailers what they’ve been asking for and provide at-show delivery exhibitors with a dedicated ‘home base’ during Las Vegas Jewelry Week.  Immediate delivery is a must in the world of changing fashion trends and inventory ebbs and flows.  A show like JIS Exchange gives every retailer type the chance to stock their stores with these immediate on-trend products.” 

As an official JCK partner, JIS Exchange has gone above and beyond to make shopping both shows while in Las Vegas extremely easy.  JCK and JIS Exchange are offering immediate Show Floor access to attendees with a badge from either show so there is no need to wait in line at each property for a new badge.  To travel between events seamlessly, the dedicated and complimentary JIS Exchange Express Shuttle runs on a continuous loop between the Tropicana Las Vegas and Mandalay Bay Convention Center through each show day.  LYFT rideshare service is also stationed at the JIS Exchange Shuttle location to provide ride service throughout Las Vegas (offering $50 ride credits to new users who download the app and enter code JIS16).  In addition, JIS Exchange provides a unique lunch offering with its fun Food Truck selection, the JIS Exchange Street Eats.  Open each show day from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM, the Food Trucks are located conveniently at the JIS Exchange Express Shuttle drop off/pick up; perfect for traveling to the JIS Exchange from JCK for an afternoon filled with lunch and shopping.
