In addition to offering free Uber rides to and from the LVCC throughout the show through unique codes that will be emailed to attendees and prospective attendees daily, the show is also offering multiple opportunities to win thousands of dollars in credit to spend with AGTA GemFair exhibitors. Additionally, several amenities are being introduced, including chair massages, rest and recharge bars, food carts and a cyber lounge. In order to help facilitate some of the logistics of the buying/selling experience, the show is also offering FedEx services.

“We have been listening closely to requests from our AGTA members, as well as our loyal clients who have been attending our Las Vegas show faithfully for the past 30 plus years,” said Douglas K. Hucker, CEO of AGTA. “All of the new strategies we are implementing are in direct response to conversations we’ve been having within our community, and are intended to create an incredible buying and selling environment for both exhibitors and attendees. Additionally, we’re confident that The Collective, which encompasses our co-location with the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show and PREMIER, will establish the LVCC as a one-stop-shop for those attending Market Week.”

Following an expansive photo shoot in Chicago recently, AGTA is rolling out a wide-reaching marketing campaign that will be seen in a number of trade publications, as well as within direct mail to attendees. The Collective-which includes AGTA GemFair Las Vegas, Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show and PREMIER-is being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center May 30 to June 3.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
