(NEW YORK) - Registration is now open for the 2014 Select by Centurion shows. The season starts in Dallas at the Ritz Carlton September 7-8. This is Select’s fifth year in Dallas.
On September 21-22, Select moves over to Nashville, TN, where it will take place at the Loews Vanderbilt. Nashville is America’s “Music City” and also is fast becoming a hub for jewelers to meet, have fun, and do some late season buying.
Last stop for Select By Centurion will be at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, CT, Sept. 28-29. This is Select By Centurion’s fourth year in the Northeast, serving New England proudly.
Mark Cirone of Cohasset Jewelers in Cohasset, MA, says, “Select is a great regional show where I have been able to find a wonderful selection of merchandise without having to travel to New York or Las Vegas.”
“I’ve attended the Dallas Select Show since its inception,” said Barbara Parker, president of Barbara Parker’s, Inc., Conroe, TX. “Because the date of the show was not long after one of the industry’s largest shows that we had attended, it was unlike me to go to another one so soon afterwards. We decided to go because from the first introduction and invitation, we liked the personal touch... And a personal touch it was. The great hospitality shown in providing great food and accommodations was unbelievable. The Dallas Select Show gave us a stress free environment to actually meet the designers and talk to them in a relaxed atmosphere, unlike any other show we had been to.”
“As an exhibitor, it is always a pleasure to be part of the Select Shows,” said Michael Hujara, managing director of Breuning, Inc. “I find that the retailers who attend the Select shows enjoy a very personal and enjoyable buying experience. The atmosphere is very upscale but relaxed and therefore provides a very positive environment.”
The Select By Centurion Show is an intimate collection of designers and manufacturers, catering to regional retailers as well as hosted retailers who fly in from all over the United States. The shows are strategically scheduled in September for late season buying in time for the holiday season.
At press time, there were still a handful of exhibit spaces available for Nashville and Foxwoods this year. For information about exhibiting or retail jeweler registration, call 888-427-4697 and ask for Jack Grafing or Barri Singer. Also visit the web site at www.selectjewelryshow.com.
