NORWALK, CT – The first JIS Miami April Show, to be held April 9-11 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, will cater to buyers shopping the latest jewelry designs for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, graduation gifting, wedding season and summer tourism.

The April Show will also serve as a platform to gain industry knowledge with the first-ever JIS Education Series. With two full days of complimentary education (Saturday, April 9 and Sunday, April 10) located on the show floor, the program features a lineup of speakers and topics dedicated to building business.

Speakers include Becky Arreaga of Mercury Mambo, who will explain how to capture young, affluent multicultural shoppers; Steve Casco of CardNotPresent.com, who will lead a discussion on accepting payments, optimizing costs and controlling fraud; Ben Smithee of LuxeIntelligence, who will explain how to succeed in a digital world; and more.

"Mercury Mambo is thrilled to be a part of the inaugural JIS Education Series,” Arreaga says. “We believe the focused learning sessions will allow attendees to gain valuable business-building insights that can lead to exponential growth."

The two previous JIS Miami Shows in January 2016 and October 2015 – the only two that have been produced since Reed Exhibitions acquired JIS – concluded with a combined attendance increase of more than 20 percent. These increases are attributed to the participation of new and legacy exhibitors as well as various show upgrades, including the JIS Platinum Club.

To register to attend or exhibit, visit jisshow.com or call directly at 1-800-840-5612. On-site registration is also available by providing the necessary credentialing documents listed in the “For Buyers” section on the website.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
