Launch of PREMIER™ Perfectly Complements Mainstay Shows

by | February 22, 2019

New York, NY—Manufacturers and designers continue to sign on for the launch of PREMIER™, a fine jewelry and timepiece trade event taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) May 30th to June 3rd, 2019, and the show is shaping up to create a major shift within Market Week. With nearly 50 designers of fine jewelry, many who are making their Las Vegas debut, and a number of major manufacturers and brands of high-end classic fine jewelry, the LVCC is positioned to become a comprehensive shopping experience for attendees.

“We’re very pleased with how PREMIER is developing,” explained Drew Lawsky, Show Director of PREMIER and JA New York Shows. “Our conversations are on-going, and we’re receiving a lot of enthusiastic responses from companies who are thrilled with this new opportunity to exhibit during Las Vegas Market Week in a cost-effective, highly curated environment. Providing Uber and Lyft codes, as well as dedicated shuttles between Wynn and Encore and the LVCC, will ensure that our exhibitors will see the retailers they want to meet with in Las Vegas.”

To be co-located with AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas and the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show, PREMIER will maintain a presence in the same hall as these two, long-standing shows. “The annual shows in Las Vegas bring together an incredible selection of jewelry designers, retailers and related organizations in the fine jewelry industry,” noted Megan Dolbee of Harris Dolbee Showroom, who represents three designers who have signed on to exhibit at PREMIER. “PREMIER provides a terrific opportunity for established and emerging artisan designers to engage with customers, many of whom only attend market in Las Vegas.”

The show has also received extremely positive responses from AGTA GemFair™ exhibitors who see PREMIER as an opportunity to expand their own businesses. “Co-locating AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas with an established event like the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show creates a formidable shift in the eco-system of Las Vegas Market Week,” explained Dave Bindra of B & B Gems. “The addition of PREMIER is the perfect complement to these two mainstay shows, and opens up so many exciting opportunities in terms of drawing in retail store buyers to the Las Vegas Convention Center, as well as forging relationships with contemporary designers and manufacturers who incorporate fine, colored gemstones into their collections. We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting transformation!”
