Original Miami Beach Antique Show Moves 2021 Dates

New March 2021 show dates secured at the Miami Beach Convention Center.




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — U.S. Antique Shows recently announced that it is changing the date of the 2021 Original Miami Beach Antique Show from January to March. The decision to adjust the show dates was based on continued concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel restrictions both domestically and internationally, as well as ongoing restrictions on large group gatherings. Originally slated to take place in late January, the new show dates are Friday, March 12, to Tuesday, March 16, 2021, allowing for a show that runs over the course of a full weekend. OMBAS will again take place at its original home in the Miami Beach Convention Center.

“Our community is incredibly eager to come together again in person. After consulting with many of our long-standing exhibitors and attendees, as well as our advisory board, we made the decision to secure dates in mid-March in order to ensure maximum success for the event for all customer types,” said Gannon Brousseau, executive vice president of the Emerald Jewelry Group. “The demographic of both exhibitors and attendees of the Original Miami Beach Antique Show is international; moving the dates to March will ideally allow for increased participation for overseas customers seeking to travel to Miami.”

Now in its 57th year, OMBAS showcases antique and vintage jewelry, watches, furniture, art, home décor and collectibles from over 700 vendors hailing from over 30 countries. The event, which is open to the public, also features several educational opportunities, including its popular Jewelry History Series, Appraisal Day, and complimentary guided educational tours. OMBAS will once again be held in the Miami Beach Convention Center, which recently underwent a $620 Million renovation. This state-of-the-art facility now boasts LEED Certification, which indicates a high level of indoor environmental quality, a striking new exterior, and beautifully landscaped public parks, allowing for an all-encompassing show experience.

When Sales Beat Projections, You Know Wilkerson Did Its Job

There are no crystal balls when it comes to sales projections. But when Thomasville, Georgia jeweler Fran Lewis chose Wilkerson to run the retirement/going-out-of-business sale for Lewis Jewelers and More, she was pleasantly surprised to learn that even Wilkerson could one-up its own sales numbers. “Not only did we meet our goal, but we exceeded the goal that Wilkerson had given us by about 134%,” she says. After more than 40 years in the business, Lewis says she decided a few years ago to “move towards retirement.” And she was impressed by Wilkerson’s tenure in the industry. Overall, she’d recommend the company to anyone else who may be thinking it’s time to hang up their loupe. “As a full package, they’ve done a very good job and I’d definitely recommend Wilkerson.”
