(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — COUTURE has recently announced that its 2021 event will move from early June to Aug. 24-26, at the Wynn Las Vegas, with a preview event to take place on the evening of Aug. 23. By pushing the show date back by nearly three months, the COUTURE community will have the opportunity to gather together in person with a greater sense of comfort and peace of mind.

“We are delighted that we were able to secure August dates in our new event space at the Wynn Las Vegas. Unique to Las Vegas properties, the Wynn provides us with the opportunity to utilize ample indoor and outdoor event spaces, and we look forward to taking advantage of the entire property during our upcoming show,” explains Gannon Brousseau, COUTURE director and executive vice president of Emerald. “We continue to be committed to ensuring the health and safety of each member of this incredible community, as well as our internal team, and we will be working closely with our partners at the Wynn in the coming months to ensure that we are implementing the highest safety protocols and measures recommended by Health Officials and Government Agencies; we will remain transparent and available to address any questions or concerns our community may have.”

The later show date also created the opportunity for COUTURE’s sister show, the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show (LVAJWS), to host its 2021 event in the space formerly occupied by COUTURE, the Lafit and Latour ballrooms. The temporary move means attendees to both events can experience Las Vegas Market Week in one venue, thereby limiting exposure to those outside of the immediate community.

COUTURE management has been closely monitoring the course of the pandemic and has been in discussion with the Wynn Las Vegas for months seeking alternative dates as a backup to the original show dates. Based on feedback from the community, the decision was ultimately made to move the event to late August in order to allow for a greater number of vaccinations, and an increased likeliness that there will be an ease on travel restrictions, both nationally and internationally.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
