Registration for JCK Las Vegas 2023 Is Open

The show will return to The Venetian Expo and The Venetian.

Including the Luxury show, JCK Las Vegas is slated to run from May 31-June 5 this year at The Venetian Expo and The Venetian in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas—Just a couple weeks into the new year it’s already time to start thinking about Las Vegas.

Registration is now open for JCK Las Vegas 2023, show organizers RX (formerly Reed Exhibitions) announced yesterday.

The largest of the Las Vegas jewelry trade shows will return to The Venetian Expo and The Venetian.

JCK will run June 2-5, while Luxury will take place May 31-June 5. May 31 and June 1 will only be open to invited guests.

Gems is scheduled for June 1-5, the same dates as the show’s educational programming, JCK Talks.

The theme of JCK 2023 is innovation. Accordingly, a new “Innovation Hub” will gather technology, products, and expert tips related to what’s new and trending.

The Innovation Hub will be home to the “JCK Retail Innovation” exhibitors, who were previously stationed on The Venetian’s lower level.

This year, they will be housed next to the “Showcase Stage” where attendees and exhibitors can interact with various technologies and products in a hands-on environment.

The same area will have a social media stage featuring influencer-led discussions and panels on content creation and strategy.

On the subject of knowledge sharing, JCK Talks will last an extra day this year, opening on June 1. Education sessions will cover marketing, sales, diversity, equity, and inclusion, and sustainability. The full education schedule is forthcoming.

Attendees can already pencil in longstanding events that will make their return, like the JCK Keynote presentation, happening the morning of Saturday, June 3, instead of its typical Friday morning timing.

JCK Rocks, meanwhile, with its musical performance, will return to its Sunday night timing on June 4.

Other major events include a Diamonds Do Good event on Thursday, June 1; the Plumb Club’s 40th anniversary event on Saturday, June 3; the Le Vian fashion show on Sunday, June 4; and the Jewelers for Children “Facets of Hope” dinner on June 4, preceding JCK Rocks.

“Coming off a momentous and celebratory year with record-breaking attendance and very high satisfaction scores, JCK is the place where connections are made, trends are discovered, major industry news is announced—and ultimately—where business happens in every major facet of the jewelry industry,” said Sarin Bachmann, group vice president of RX Jewelry Portfolio.

“We look forward to welcoming new and returning jewelry professionals and providing the invaluable buying opportunities, education, and networking they need to propel their businesses forward. Whether you are a buyer, designer, manufacturer, supplier or just entering the business, JCK will be the must-attend event of the year.”

JCK attendees can begin adding events to their calendars on the trade show’s mobile app or on the website, which will continue to be updated with exhibitor and event information.

Registration information is available online.
