Buyer Qualifications and Credentialing

We request that you provide the below information at the time of registration. If you have been approved to attend a JIS Show within the past two years, you will be automatically approved.*

  • JIS Shows are for the Active Jewelry Trade Only. With your cooperation, they will remain as such.
  • Buyers must be active retailers of jewelry or wholesalers of finished jewelry.
  • Manufacturers, manufacturer sales reps, loose diamond and stone dealers will not be admitted as buyers but can purchase a special access badge during the registration process.
  • Receipt of JIS literature or an exhibitor invitation does not constitute admission unless the buyer credentialing requirements are completely satisfied.
  • Upon request, the spouse of the primary contact can be permitted entry with government issued photo identification proving affiliation by last name or address. 
  • No children allowed under 14 years of age.
  • Cameras are not permitted on the show floor.

* You will be asked to submit additional information if:

  • This is your first time attending
  • Your company has changed
  • You do not meet the below qualifications

Your Company's Credentialing Requirements:

  • Copy of business license or sales tax certificate
        AND EITHER ITEM “A” OR “B” BELOW

Your Attendees' Credentialing Requirements:

For each attendee registering under company, at least ONE of the following must be provided to confirm employment/affiliation with company:

Special Accommodations for Pawnbrokers

If you are not listed with the JBT or unable to provide invoices that show buying jewelry at wholesale levels, we need to verify the existence of retail jewelry sales that take place at the pawn shop in question. This could entail photos of the store showing the jewelry section, purchase receipt for a safe, or purchase receipt of showcases.

Attendees registering under company are still required to show proof of employment/affiliation. See the attendee credentialing requirements above.

For All Badge Holders

  • Government issued photo identification such as a Driver’s License or Passport is required to obtain and validate your badge when you arrive at the show and each time you enter the show floor.

Falsifying credentials or attempting to register individuals who are not in the trade or affiliated with the registering company can result in the company and related registrants being permanently banned for all RX jewelry shows including JIS, JCK, and LUXURY.
