(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Emerald Expositions Jewelry Group has announced the launch of PREMIER, a fine jewelry trade event to take place during Las Vegas Market Week, beginning in 2019. To be co-located with Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show and AGTA GemFair Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center, May 31-June 4, PREMIER will feature an extensive selection of established fine jewelry manufacturers and brands, emerging designers and timepieces within a convenient, easy-to-shop venue.

“The launch of PREMIER has been many years in the making,” said Drew Lawsky, group show director for Emerald Expositions Jewelry Group. “This event will provide a home in Las Vegas to manufacturers and brands who are seeking an alternative environment in which to exhibit during Las Vegas Market Week. Whether an emerging designer, or a multi-generational manufacturing brand, our exhibiting partners will be given the exceptional customer service for which our group is known, and our attendees will be delighted with the ease of accessing three independent yet synergistic shows in one convenient location, just minutes from our sister shows at the Wynn and Encore Las Vegas.”

“Our comprehensive experience in producing COUTURE and COUTUREtime, the JA New York Shows and the U.S. Antique Shows puts us in a unique position to be the stewards for this important addition to Las Vegas Market Week,” said Gannon Brousseau, senior vice president for Emerald Expositions Jewelry Group. “Based on our experience, and the strategic knowledge we’ve garnered through the course of thoroughly researching this launch, we believe PREMIER has a unique value proposition within the market, and we intend to cultivate an experience during Market Week that benefits our entire industry.”

The same team that spearheads the marketing and communications strategies for COUTURE, COUTUREtime, JA New York and the U.S. Antique Shows will further develop and execute the marketing for PREMIER. By applying proven, successful formulas, understanding and responding to specific nuances of a launch of this magnitude, and working with AGTA decision makers and the U.S. Antique Show community, the group plans to continue to generate enthusiasm among attending retailers by highlighting the creation of an entirely new Market Week experience. PREMIER will also be given the dedication and expertise of the COUTURE and JA New York operations team, which has developed a solid reputation within the industry for creating a seamless experience for exhibitors. 

Manufacturers, brands and designers interested in exhibiting should contact Drew Lawsky at 646-668-3730 or via email at [email protected].

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.
