(MIAMI BEACH, Fla.) - Hot off the heels of the extremely successful JIS January 2011 Miami Beach Show, JIS (Jewelers International Showcase) delivered the buyers yet again at their April show with jewelry trade buyers in attendance from across the western hemisphere, including Latin America and the Caribbean.
“On the first day buyers began lining up 30 minutes prior to the show opening eager to buy for the upcoming Mother’s Day holiday,” said JIS President and CEO Mike Breslow. “This show is exceptionally important for many retail jewelry stores, restocking after a successful Valentine’s Day as well as stocking for spring weddings, graduations and Father’s Day purchases.”
As buyers rushed into the show they were welcomed by exhibitors on a floor plan that expanded approximately 15% from the April 2010 Show with many new firms rushing to join JIS this April to meet with the rapidly expanding jewelry markets in Latin America - a continual source of growth at every JIS Show for the last several years, in addition to the always present buyers from the Caribbean, Florida and most other USA states.
Many Exhibitors expressed how happy they were with the amount of actual buying taking place on the show floor:
“The main thing we as a company like about the JIS shows is the consistency that they create as far as getting buyers are concerned. We are always excited that JIS invokes equal enthusiasm in all our buyers to actually wait for this show. It has been our 8th consecutive show and we have recorded at least 20% growth over last time. That is reason enough for us to be a part of JIS now and every time,” said Regalia Jewels LLC, New York.
With the resounding success of the April 2011 Show behind them, JIS is already hard at work preparing for their October Shows held in Miami Beach and Las Vegas serving the vast jewelry trade markets of the eastern and western United States, the Caribbean and Latin America. If you haven’t reserved your booth for the upcoming October Miami Beach Show, you must act fast as Breslow says they are facing “very limited” space from the venue and are anticipating a sold out October event.
