Retail Jeweller has today (March 14) officially launched its 2017 JCK Las Vegas Buyer Incentive Programme to find retail buyers who wish to visit the forthcoming US trade show.
Following on from the success of the recent second annual Hong Kong Buyer Incentive Programme run in conjunction with the HKTDC, Retail Jeweller has now teamed-up with JCK organisers, Reed, to offer up to five retail buyers the chance to visit Las Vegas for the show, which runs from June 5-8, 2017.
In order to be eligible to be considered, you must be a retailer based in the UK or Ireland and you cannot have visited the show in the past two years (2016 or 2015).
If you are accepted, JCK will offer three nights free hotel accommodation in Las Vegas during the show (hotel room can accommodate up to two guests) as well as the services of a dedicated retailer account manager to assist with show registration and free transfers to and from McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
Retailers will be expected to cover the cost of their own flights to the US and expenses while in Las Vegas.
Commenting on the Buyer Incentive Programme and the partnership with JCK Las Vegas, Retail Jeweller editor Ruth Faulkner, said: “Retail Jeweller has enjoyed a long standing relationship with JCK Las Vegas and we are delighted that they have approached us to recruit a UK buyer delegation for this year’s show.
“Our existing relationship with the HKTDC for the Hong Kong shows has demonstrated that our readership is exactly the right target demographic for the large international trade fairs and we believe that it is our role as the industry trade publication to help facilitate the best possible buying opportunities for our readers.
“As the largest jewellery trade event in the US, JCK is an ideal platform for sourcing new and interesting product and we hope that many retailers will be interested in this fantastic opportunity to visit the show.”
Those interested in applying are asked to email Ruth.Faulkner@emap.com with JCK Las Vegas in the subject line.
JCK is the largest jewellery trade event in the USA and will take place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino from June 5-8, 2017.
