RAPAPORT... The 2020 JCK Las Vegas and Luxury shows have been canceled, the events’ organizer has confirmed, as the coronavirus continues to sweep across the globe.

“This decision was made in response to the unprecedented challenges faced by JCK’s jewelry community,” Sarin Bachmann, Reed Jewelry Group’s vice president for the shows, said Tuesday. “We know [it] impacts the entire industry and it was not made lightly.”

The main JCK Las Vegas trade fair was originally scheduled to begin June 2, while its sister event, Luxury, was due to start on May 31. Reed Exhibitions said last month that it was planning to postpone both events to an undetermined later date. However, the organizer has now confirmed that the next editions will take place at the Venetian Resort & Sands Expo in June 2021.

Reed Jewelry Group will host a remote event called JCK Virtual 2020 this summer, it said, noting it was “creating other virtual tools to assist jewelry professionals.” These will supplement the online education and webinars that it has already launched to address challenges related to the coronavirus.

In addition, the organizer said JCK exhibitors would have the opportunity to participate in JIS October, which is slated to run from October 13 to 16 in Miami.

“We will continue to listen to our customers and to facilitate the personal and business connections that our industry is built on, so we can all evolve and emerge stronger and better-connected than ever,” Bachmann added.
