(CHICAGO) - The SMART Jewelry Show announced that pre-registration for retailer attendees as of late February was running 44 percent higher than last year, pointing towards yet another record attendance level for the innovative trade show, which has attracted more retailers each year since its debut in 2009.
“We’re thrilled at the buzz the 2014 show is generating among jewelry retailers,” says Jim Reed, show director. “Every year, attendance at our show has increased. We’re excited to see that trend continue, and even more excited that this year is looking stronger than ever.”
Reed expected that this year’s numbers would continue to extend their lead on previous installments of the show.
“We’ve got some exciting new changes coming this year, with our on-the-floor SMART Block Party on Sunday night, a bunch of exciting new shopping incentives, and of course, a new spin on our best-in-the-business educational program.”
Now in its sixth year, The SMART Jewelry Show Chicago takes place April 5 - 7, 2014, with a full-day education conference on April 4. Learn more at www.smartjewelryshow.com.
