(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.”
