The trade show organizers for JCK, Luxury, Couture, and AGTA Gem Fair come together for a pre-show update.

The Las Vegas jewelry trade shows are less than a month away.

After a year without them, jewelers across the country are ready to get back to the trade show circuit.

Sarin Block Bachmann, group vice president of JCK and Luxury, Gannon Brousseau, show director of Couture, and Doug Hucker, CEO of the American Gem Trade Association, joined Associate Editor Lenore Fedow for a pre-show update.

The show directors talked about health and safety guidelines, what’s new at the shows this year, how the jewelry community has banded together, and more in this episode of the “My Next Question” webinar.
