NORWALK, CT — The JCK Las Vegas and Luxury shows will be postponed until later in the year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers Reed Exhibitions and the Reed Jewelry Group said they hope to be able to announce new dates “shortly.” JCK Las Vegas was originally set for June 2-5, with Luxury to open May 31.

“Our top priority is the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, industry partners and staff,” organizers said in a press release.

“After consulting with national experts, our customers, closely monitoring developments and reviewing guidance and advice from renowned national public health officials, the United States Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we have decided it is in the best interest of all our JCK community to postpone the Show.”

The shows are among many in the industry that have been postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus. See more of our coverage of the pandemic here.

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.”
