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.

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.”
