Record-breaking attendance at JIS Miami

SB_bigstock-Miami-Beach-CovJIS Miami recorded its largest attendance ever, shattering last year’s turnout by 16 per cent, says its organizer, Reed Exhibitions.  

The record-breaking numbers are being attributed to the event’s new and enhanced features, introduced after Reed acquired JIS in May.

“There was a new energized excitement about the show, now that it’s a part of Reed Exhibitions and the Reed Jewelry Group,” said Jordan Tuchband, industry vice-president of JIS.

“You could feel it even before the doors opened at 10:00 a.m.; the lines at registration were astonishing and unlike anything I’ve seen in my time with JIS.”

The show—held at Miami Beach Convention Center from Oct. 15 to 18—ran in conjunction with the inaugural Luxury Miami event, along with a number of new and expanded pavilions, including ones dedicated to Hong Kong Jewelry Manufacturers’ Association (HKJMA) and the Plumb Club. Attendees enjoyed a variety of upgraded lounges throughout the show floor with snacks and beverages, and lunched on a three-course meal at the Hidden Gem Café.

The next JIS Miami trade-only event will be held Jan. 16 to 18 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
