Norwalk, Conn.—JCK has announced its keynote speaker as well as the events and education schedule for the 2022 Las Vegas show.

Swan Sit, former global head of digital marketing at Nike, Estée Lauder and Revlon, will deliver the keynote at the jewelry trade show.

Titled “Web3 Is Coming—Navigating the Past, Present, and Future of Retail,” the session will dive into innovative platforms and technologies that are emerging and disrupting the way retailers engage with customers to tell a brand’s story.

(According to CNET, web3 refers to an internet integrated with a blockchain or one in which cryptocurrencies and NFTs are built into the platforms.)

Swan will discuss the importance of strategy development for new audiences, including the best use of platforms for the next generation, community development on web3, and what retail brands will look like in the metaverse.

The keynote is open to all JCK and Luxury badge holders. Seating is limited. 

Sponsored by Sarine, Sit’s keynote is scheduled for Friday, June 10 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. in the Palazzo Ballroom at The Venetian. 

JCK is also bringing back its JCK Talks education program, sponsored by GIA. 

JCK Talks will open a day before the show, beginning with two discussions at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 9 in two Level 1 ballrooms. 

From June 10-12, JCK Talks sessions will be held live on the Showcase Stage from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
