(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.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
