(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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
