JCK 2024 Maıntaıns ıts Reıgn as the #1 Jewelry Show 

JCK, solidifying its position as the most important global gathering for the jewelry trade, concludes its 2024 edition on a high note. Considered the “Super Bowl” of the jewelry industry, JCK continues to set the tone, the trends, and the mood for the jewelry industry for the year to come. 30,000 industry professionals from all facets of the jewelry industry joined JCK and Luxury for a week of product sourcing, education, and networking. The industry continued to gather under one roof with 16,500 attendees and over 1,900 exhibitors in over 20 different neighborhoods at The Venetian and The Venetian Expo for JCK from May 31 – June 3, with the AGTA and GEMS pavilion, the Hong Kong pavilion and JCK Talks opening a day earlier on May 30. Luxury welcomed retailers from May 29 – June 3 and was open exclusively to invited retailers on May 29 and May 30.

“This year’s JCK was another that surpassed all expectations” says Sarin Bachmann, Group Vice President of RX’s jewelry portfolio and event leader for JCK. “Even in times when there is uncertainty in the jewelry industry, JCK proves once again to be the place the entire industry gathers to source products, unveil new technologies and strategies, learn, discuss, network and place orders for the rest of the selling season. There was a noticeable shift in the energy of the industry once they arrived at JCK and Luxury and the enthusiasm on the show floor prevailed and left the industry on a very positive note.”

Continuing to make JCK the safest and most secure place to do business was a key feature at this year’s show. Raising the bar again, JCK added additional qualification measures for every individual attendee. Once at the show, stepped up measures including badge scanning validation at each entrance and weapons detection scanning was required to enter the floor. “Enhancing the security measures at JCK is what is best for our entire industry. We featured state-of-the-art technology that truly raised the bar in creating a safe space for our attendees and exhibitors to conduct business,” states Bachmann. JCK did this in a way that did not slow down entry and the feedback was extremely appreciative.” 

Luxury retailer, Alexis Padis of Padis Jewelers notes, “It was very reassuring to sense an increased security effort throughout Luxury and JCK, from focused registration requirements to bag checks, weapons detection, and an obvious police presence throughout, I’ve never felt safer at a show. Thank you to the JCK team for making our safety a clear priority.”
