(PRESS RELEASE) DALLAS, TX — The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) announced the production of two shows for 2021. The AGTA GemFair Las Vegas show will take place August 24 – 26, 2021, at the Encore Resort. Originally scheduled for June, AGTA GemFair Las Vegas was put on hold until new dates and a location could be confirmed. “We’re excited to be able to produce a much-needed show for both our exhibitors and our buyers,” said Douglas K. Hucker, AGTA CEO. “While this will be a one-year location, the great thing is we are in the same resort complex as the COUTURE Show and the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show (LVAJWS). The Wynn-Encore Resort will truly be one-stop shopping for all of your colored gemstone and jewelry needs.” While each show will have separate registrations, AGTA will honor COUTURE and LVAJWS badges. “After such a hectic year, it was important to AGTA to provide a safe marketplace for our businesses,” said Ruben Bindra, AGTA president. “We will work closely with Encore Resort and local health officials to make sure all safety protocols are in place for the show.” Registration for the GemFair Las Vegas can be accessed at AGTA’s website here.

The second show from AGTA will be a new one — AGTA GemFair Denver will take place September 18-21, 2021, in conjunction with the Hard Rock Summit (HRS). AGTA GemFair Denver will be an integral part of Sparkle & Joy, a section of HRS dedicated to fine gemstones, fine jewelry, and extraordinary gemstone objects. “We are especially thrilled to start a new GemFair in Denver this year,” stated Hucker. “It’s in a beautiful location, and the timing is perfect for stocking up for the holiday season.” Registration for GemFair Denver will be accessible at AGTA’s website soon. More details to follow for the Denver show when available.

The dates for the 2022 AGTA GemFair Tucson are February 1 – 6, 2022.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
