(PRESS RELEASE) NORWALK, CT – The Jewelers International Showcase (JIS) team announces that it will postpone the JIS April 2020 show in response to the coronavirus pandemic and in compliance with guidance from the federal government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

JIS April will instead be merged with JIS October and held in Miami Beach, FL, Oct. 13-16, 2020, at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

The team stated:

JIS April is an important event for the jewelry industry and our customers. In the face of this unprecedented global challenge, our team — like businesses throughout the U.S. and all over the world — has made the difficult decision to postpone this event. The safety and health of our exhibitors, attendees, staff, families and friends is the priority now. We look forward to gathering again in October.

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.
