The 2024 JCK Show will return to the Venetian in Las Vegas.
Norwalk, Conn.—Registration is now open for the 2024 JCK Show in Las Vegas.

The trade show will return to the Venetian Expo and Resort, with JCK scheduled for Friday, May 31, through Monday, June 3.

Luxury will be held from May 29 to June 3 with invitation-only days on May 29-30.

The theme is “Love,” highlighting the “passion and emotion of this industry and the close-knit community it fosters.”

To celebrate the theme, JCK Magazine will share love stories in the industry prior to the show and then, during the show, highlight these stories and hold unique on-theme activations.

There will be select events and features opening on May 30, including AGTA's Gems, the newly relocated Hong Kong Pavilion, and JCK Talks, the show’s educational sessions.

“We are coming off another incredible year, breaking attendance records once again and seeing very high satisfaction scores,” said Sarin Bachmann, group vice president for the RX jewelry portfolio and event leader for JCK. 

“We are continuing to raise the bar this year while bringing back the energy and excitement, celebrating love and showcasing why we all love this industry. There are truly no connections like those made face-to-face. We are in the business of bringing people together and building businesses – through jewelry, inspiration and unmatched event experiences.” 

New this year is the Sustainability Summit, taking place May 30 in the San Palo Ballroom.

The two-hour summit will feature key figures in the jewelry industry discussing, via a keynote address and a panel discussion, how to promote sustainability throughout the supply chain.

“The summit will provide participants with valuable insights into the consumer mindset on sustainability and actionable strategies to incorporate sustainability into their business practices,” said organizers.

The new Hong Kong Pavilion, previously located on the main show floor, will move to the Level 1 ballrooms.

As for returning events, JCK Talks will start on May 30 with sessions in the Venetian ballrooms. The talks will focus on a variety of topics including security, sales, DEI, and marketing.

More sessions will follow from May 31-June 2 on the Showcase Stage and the Social Stage on the show floor.

The Showcase Stage sessions will feature individual speakers and panels in a “Track” format, which divides sessions into eight topics, including hot topics, trends, business management, sales, innovation, sustainability and ethics, development, and marketing.

The Social Stage, which debuted last year, will return with daily 30-minute sessions featuring digital strategists, content creators and influencers sharing tips for content creation, social media engagement and how to stand out on social platforms.

There will also be a keynote session on June 1 featuring a soon-to-be-announced celebrity guest.

The full programming schedule is available on JCK’s website and will be updated weekly with announcements about sessions and speakers.

JCK Rocks, the annual entertainment event, will be held June 2 at a new location, Tao Beach and Tao Nightclub. The headlining entertainment will be announced soon.

Attendees can plan ahead and look through the exhibitor and event lists using the JCK Mobile app, available on the Apple Store and Google Play.

Those interested can upgrade to JCK Pro, which offers a dedicated registration line, discounts on hotel rooms, an exclusive lounge and business center on the show floor, swag, and reserved priority seating at JCK Talks.

Organizers highlighted the show’s safety protocols, including vetting attendees and investing in “best-in-class security measures.”

“We look forward to welcoming new and returning professionals in our community, focusing on providing the best buying experiences, unique moments, and most importantly, continuing to foster business in a safe and secure environment,” said Bachmann.
