(LAS VEGAS) - Registration is now open for NICHE: The Show, returning to Las Vegas Jewelry Week June 4-6, 2011, at Planet Hollywood’s Celebrity Ballroom. NICHE: The Show debuted last year with a carefully curated selection of designer-made jewelry and luxury gifts.
Retailers hailed the new specialty wholesale show as “a treasure trove” and “a jewel box,” offering fashion-forward, studio-made alternatives to the manufactured jewelry exhibited at other jewelry shows.
Building on that success, NICHE: The Show will again showcase silver, gold and gemstone jewelry and decorative accessories exclusively produced by small studios in the United States and Canada. The 2011 specialty show will be slightly larger, but still intimate, with 150 artist/designers.
“We’re excited about recent signs of recovery in the luxury goods market, because our small studios are ready to meet buyers’ needs,” says Christine Kloostra, show director. “Small studios deliver originality, enduring quality and luxury at the right price. They give buyers the option of contemporary, statement-making jewelry at low minimums.”
NICHE: The Show will also present studio-made home accessories, including art glass, sculpture, trays and ring boxes as suitable for a bride’s vanity table as for a fine jeweler’s store display.
An early-bird rate of $99 per night for lodging at Planet Hollywood is available for a limited time, while space lasts.
Complimentary limousine service will connect NICHE: The Show shoppers with jewelry events nearby at the Mandalay Bay.
Qualified retailers will receive complimentary admission to NICHE: The Show. Register online today at www.NICHEthe-Show.com or call 800-432-7238, ext. 272, for more information.
