(PRESS RELEASE) In response to the fast-breaking developments related to the COVID-19 coronavirus in New York City, MJSA has decided to postpone its Expo, which had been scheduled to run March 15-17 at the Javits Center.

“We place the highest importance on the health and well-being of our exhibitors, attendees, and staff,” said MJSA President/CEO David W. Cochran. “Given Governor Cuomo’s decision to declare a state of emergency for New York State, along with the current uncertainty about the virus’s progression in New York City, we’ve decided to postpone the show until the threat passes and we can be more certain that MJSA Expo can be run both safely and successfully.

“We’ve already heard from many Expo exhibitors who agree that this move is necessary,” he continued. “We are currently working with the management of JA New York and the Javits Center to identify new show dates for later this year, and we’ll coordinate with our exhibitors to ensure the shift can proceed as smoothly as possible.”

MJSA would like to thank everyone for their support and new dates will be announced soon.

MJSA Expo is the longest-running trade show dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design, and it annually features the leading suppliers of related tools, equipment, supplies, and services. For continuing updates, go to MJSAExpo.org.

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
