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.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
