Bachmann said JCK Las Vegas and Luxury are “following the latest guidance from local, state and national authorities as it relates to travel and participation in our events with the intention of keeping our exhibitors and attendees informed as they finalize plans for 2020.”

“We are committed to implementing up to date best practices in accordance with public health guidance, including those issued by the CDC,” she said. “We are working closely with the Sands Expo and the Venetian, who have indicated that their Emergency Management team is closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak at the global, U.S., and local level. They are closely following the guidance of the CDC and Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) for local direction.

“The jewelry industry is based on personal connections — and many rely on the important business relationships made during JCK Las Vegas and Luxury, one of the most anticipated annual jewelry buying experiences. We will continue to be proactive and take necessary precautions to facilitate an environment for the entire jewelry community to unite, make meaningful new connections and discover new products and technology.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
