JCK 2017 Las Vegas Show Date Changes AnnouncedSeptember 06, 16
(IDEX Online) – The JCK and LUXURY shows will have their dates changed for the 2017 editions to enable Jewish exhibitors and visitors to observe the holiday of Shavuot.
The festival is observed by several hundred of JCK's and LUXURY's customers.
LUXURY will open on June 2 and continue through the weekend, while the JCK show opens on June 5 and closes on June 8 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
These dates are a shift to the traditional day pattern of the past, JCK said in a statement.
"First and foremost we wanted to acknowledge and respect our community of observers," commented Yancy Weinrich, Senior Vice President of Reed Jewelry Group. "Additionally, in our conversations with retailers there was support for moving off of Memorial Day weekend, which we hope will allow those with scheduling conflicts around the holiday weekend to attend."
Moshe Klein, Director of Sales of Julius Klein commented on his overwhelming support for the date shift. "As a long time exhibitor at LUXURY, we appreciate the thoughtful decision the JCK Events team made in order to accommodate observing the holiday of Shavuot. The new date pattern will allow the Jewish community that participates to observe the holiday without taking away from the important business that happens at JCK. We look forward to having a successful show and believe the date shift is a refreshing reminder that at JCK, it's not just business, it's personal. We have already seen overwhelming support behind this decision from our staff and many customers."
