(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.

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
