(PRESS RELEASE) NORWALK, CT – This October, the 2018 JIS Miami October Show and the Centurion South Beach Show will be co‐locating their events in the remodeled Miami Beach Convention Center in South Beach, FL. The co‐location – following a $620 million renovation of the venue ‐ promises easier participation of both events and more buying and selling opportunities for retailers and exhibitors alike.

The Centurion South Beach Show at JIS will occupy Hall D of the Miami Beach Convention Center while JIS will take place in Halls A, B, and C, making the co‐location a complete Four‐Hall Event within the same venue. 

“We are thrilled to have Centurion South Beach join our JIS October event, as this enables the buyers at both shows to more conveniently move between the show (s), and ultimately will provide our exhibitors more value,” said Yancy Weinrich, senior vice president, Reed Jewelry Group.

Centurion President Howard Hauben echoes the excitement brought by the first Centurion and JIS co‐location partnership.

“We are excited to team up with the JIS Miami October Show this October. We have been producing Centurion South Beach Show since 2007 and our stores attending have grown from under 70 per show to more than 200 over the years. Many of our attendees love to also attend the JIS Miami October Show while in town, so a co‐location inevitably made a lot of sense for everyone. We believe the combination of these two shows offers better fine jewelry retailers throughout the U.S., Central and South America, and the Caribbean the best last‐minute, pre‐season buying opportunity anywhere.”

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.
