JIS Spring 2023 Concludes With Increased International Attendance, Expanded Show Floor

(PRESS RELEASE) NORWALK, CT — JIS, the premier event for immediate and seasonal at-show jewelry delivery, concluded its three-day jewelry buying event JIS Spring on March 28 with increased overall attendance including first-time and international attendees at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Miami Beach, Florida.

“JIS welcomed thousands of buyers from across the globe to experience the wide assortment of products from the 365+ exhibiting companies. We are thrilled with the increase in attendance from the Caribbean and first-time attendees. We also saw a surge in overall international attendance,” states Sara McDonough, the JIS Show director.

Strategically planned to provide jewelry retailers with timely inventory sourcing, JIS Spring featured an impressive selection of products from fine to fashion, silver, gold, diamonds and more. The expanded 75,000 sq feet of show floor included key pavilions: The Galleria, Silver & Fashion, Fine Jewelry and the international areas, Türkiye and the new Surat Jewellery Manufacturers Association (SJMA) pavilion.

Attendees enjoyed a lively atmosphere with mimosas during peak registration hours, DJ, photo booth, daily pavilion pop up events and happy hours in the Galleria lounge. Buyers reported they appreciated the JIS expert business tips located around the show floor on column wraps and new digital enhancements aimed at reducing the event’s carbon footprint.

“The warm and sunny Miami Beach weather reflected the recharged energy at JIS Spring. As the leading seasonal buying and stocking event to replenish and discover the season’s must-haves – attendees could productively shop the show and enjoy mood-boosting touches and clink glasses at the networking opportunities,” notes Lauren van Rensburg, JIS Marketing director.

“JIS is the show for attendees to source what they need for their businesses now. We are continuing to grow to meet the interest and demand of our attendees and will expand and enhance the show with elevated curation of merchandise the industry is keen to discover in the future,” says McDonough.

This Third-Generation Jeweler Was Ready for Retirement. He Called Wilkerson

Retirement is never easy, especially when it means the end to a business that was founded in 1884. But for Laura and Sam Sipe, it was time to put their own needs first. They decided to close J.C. Sipe Jewelers, one of Indianapolis’ most trusted names in fine jewelry, and call Wilkerson. “Laura and I decided the conditions were right,” says Sam. Wilkerson handled every detail in their going-out-of-business sale, from marketing to manning the sales floor. “The main goal was to sell our existing inventory that’s all paid for and turn that into cash for our retirement,” says Sam. “It’s been very, very productive.” Would they recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers who want to enjoy their golden years? Absolutely! “Call Wilkerson,” says Laura. “They can help you achieve your goals so you’ll be able to move into retirement comfortably.”
