(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

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
