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.

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

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.
