PREMIER™ Show Continues to Gain Momentum for 2019 Launch

by | September 5, 2018

New York, NY—Designers, brands and manufacturers continue to sign on for PREMIER, the new comprehensive fine jewelry and time piece trade event launching in Las Vegas during 2019 market week. As companies sign on, and conversations with brands and manufacturers continue, the show organizers are being mindful of thoughtfully curating the show to ensure a seamless shopping experience for attendees. To take place alongside the American Gem Trade Association’s AGTA GemFairTM Las Vegas, and the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch show at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), PREMIER is providing designers, brands and manufacturers with a cost-sensitive alternative in which to exhibit during Las Vegas Market Week.

“We want to ensure that PREMIER is an easy-to-navigate shopping experience for our attendees,” explains Drew Lawsky, Group Show Director of PREMIER and JA New York Shows. “By thoughtfully curating the various sections of the show, buyers will be able to meet with a variety of vendors while making efficient use of their time in Las Vegas. Our exhibitors, in turn, will be able to showcase their product to an expansive group of buyers who are specifically looking for products in their categories.”

The distinct sections of the show to date will include: PREMIER X Brands for established fine jewelry brands and manufacturers, PREMIER X Designer for established fine jewelry designers, as well as a handful of emerging fine jewelry designers who are making their Las Vegas debut, and PREMIER X Italy for those mainstay brands signing on to exhibit through PREMIER’s partnership with The Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), organizers of the venerable VICENZAORO shows.

As companies continue to sign up for PREMIER’s 2019 launch, the show organizers will actively work on developing the show floor plan in a way that creates a straightforward and easy-to-navigate shopping experience for attendees. One badge will give buyers access to all three shows taking place in the South Hall of the LVCC, and transportation will be provided to those wishing to move between the LVCC and COUTURE Las Vegas.
