U.S. Antique Shows has signed a sponsorship deal with online community and trading platform, Polygon.
“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Polygon,” says Dan Darby, Emerald Expositions vice-president and U.S. Antique Shows general manager.
“Many of our dealers are already members of their online community, therefore, we understand the value they provide and we believe it’s important to introduce this exceptional resource to new dealers.”
As part of the deal, Polygon will sponsor the following U.S. Antique Shows in 2016-17:
- Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show;
- New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show;
- LUEUR; and
- 2017 Original Miami Antique Show.
In addition, Polygon’s partnership includes booths at the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, held June 2 to 5, as well as LUEUR in October and the Original Miami Antique Show next February.
At the Las Vegas show, Polygon will also host the second annual Trading Pavilion on June 1 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The one-day event is open to all vetted Polygon members, U.S. Antique Shows’ exhibitors, qualified members of the International Watch & Jewelry Guild (IWJG), World Wide Traders (WWT), and West Coast Diamond Club. The trading pavilion allows members to bring merchandise to sell or come only to buy.
“We’re so happy to be working with and exhibiting at the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show again this year,” says Polygon sales and marketing director Lindsay Watkin.
“The team is top-notch and the show is a really great fit for us given our members are dealing in all types of goods, including antique and estate, fine watches, loose diamonds and gemstones, finished jewellery, and more. Our members also love the fact they benefit from free access to the show floor; interest and attendance is growing year after year.”
