As the U.S. slowly reopens following the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, more jewelry and gem trade events are returning to live, in-person formats. Most still have safety measures, including masks mandates and social distancing, in place. But for retailers on the hunt for fresh brands and stellar new styles from existing partners, there’s no shortage of trade fairs to attend in 2021.
In fact, August brings a deluge of options. The largest U.S. jewelry trade shows, including JCK Las Vegas and the Couture Show, convene in Las Vegas beginning August 24. But the entire U.S. will be buzzing with worth-it fairs this month, from the sprawling NY NOW show at NYC’s Javit’s Center to the dual Gemfaire shows in Southern California.
