(PRESS RELEASE) NORWALK, CT — JIS Exchange, the premier destination and number one source for immediate at-show delivery during Las Vegas Jewelry Week, will double in size and take place alongside JCK Las Vegas in Mandalay Bay for 2018.  The reason for the move from the Tropicana was to give customers an easier, more efficient shopping experience of both JIS Exchange and JCK Las Vegas.  We are excited to announce JIS Exchange will maintain its position alongside JCK Las Vegas and LUXURY shows in 2019 as all three shows move together from Mandalay Bay to the Sands Expo and Convention Center, an extension of the beautiful Venetian and Palazzo Resorts.  JIS Exchange, housed in the Tropicana during its first two years (2016 and 2017) due to venue availabilities, moved to Mandalay Bay in 2018 based on customer feedback and the completion of Mandalay Bay’s convention center expansion project.  Attendees and exhibitors already come to Las Vegas Jewelry Week with packed schedules, so locating the shows as close as possible to each other will save valuable time and make attending both events effortless.  

“We are excited to welcome JIS Exchange to the Sands Expo in 2019, to take place alongside the JCK Las Vegas and LUXURY Shows.  We are always listening to our customers, and their desire for ease and convenience of having everything under one roof is clear.  JIS Exchange alongside JCK solidifies our evolution and move back to the Sands, which will also include our newest pavilion, Global Gemstones —a partnership with ICA and the very best Fine Gemstone dealers in the world.  We are excited to be able to offer the global jewelry industry a marketplace for one stop shopping in 2019,” says Yancy Weinrich, Senior Vice President, Reed Jewelry Group.

In recent years, the Sands Expo and Convention Center has undergone a complete overhaul with major renovations and upgrades, including a newly designed breathtaking entryway, easier to navigate layout that has made crowd traffic flow simple and less spread out, a new extensive Business Center, Café and additional amenities. The Sands Convention Center is conveniently connected to the Venetian and Palazzo Resorts with over 7,000 suites and world renowned dining, entertainment, shopping and nightlife; all which make staying on property easy and enjoyable.  For customers who prefer to stay off-property or enjoy other areas of Las Vegas, the Sands is conveniently located in the middle of the famous Las Vegas Strip.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
