On behalf of myself and the entire JA New York Team, we are thankful to those that were able to join us in March for the Spring Show! Attendance was robust and spirits were high with excitement. The show floor was buzzing with new business, educational takeaways and stellar networking opportunities. We had a successful opening day capping out the night with Jewelers for Children’s ‘Celebrate New York’ event and auction. It was a packed house as retailers, designers and show staff came together to celebrate and support our industry’s favorite charitable organization. We were back to business for the next two days, handing out buyer bucks to lucky retailers making purchases at the show. The Jewelers of America educational programs had no seat left empty while the best and brightest educated our JA New York Community on best practices to better their businesses.
The Big Pitch was an amazing platform for our budding designers to sharpen their presentation skills, while gaining valuable insight from industry experts. Our Hosted Buyer program gets a little better every show cycle and Spring was no exception; each buyer worked the show floor eager to discover the next bestselling line for their store. The new designer gallery included exceptional talent including fresh designers like Karin Jacobson, Lulu and Shay, Soulbound and Theresa Kaz.
We had a blast with all of you for Spring and hope that you take the time to provide feedback through the survey we sent out last week. We look forward to seeing you at upcoming industry events and of course, the JA New York Summer Show, July 15 -17. Registration Open Now!!!
