Reed Exhibitions has announced that it will not be organizing its JCK Las Vegas and Luxury shows this year altogether. The organizer is planning to set up "a virtual event" this summer and will partner with the Jewelers International Show, Oct. 13–16 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
Yancy Weinrich, chief operating officer of Reed Exhibitions, said in a statement: “While we cannot predict the future, we can be prepared for the time when we can come together in support of our fabulous industry. You’ll see more resources from the JCK and Luxury teams that leverage our partners and the global reach of Reed Exhibitions worldwide to offer innovative solutions and a respite from the challenges presented by a global pause in business." She continues: "In 2021, Reed Exhibitions looks forward to welcoming the jewelry and watch industries back to the Sands Expo and the Venetian, who have been exceptionally strategic and flexible partners throughout our process of finding the right solutions for the industry during this challenging time.”
