The 2022 edition of JIS Fall is scheduled to run from September 30th to October. 3, with new special events, education and activation areas on-site at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Florida. In addition to the show’s more than 600 national and international exhibitors, the four-day event will see the return of the Plumb Club Pavilion.
With an area of more than 105,000 square meters, the autumn fair aims to meet the immediate needs of jewelry retailers and their customers for the holiday season. A selection of products and services are organized in key shopping pavilions including Fine Jewelry, The Galleria, Lab Grown, ETS, Silver & Fashion, New Exhibitor Zone and international pavilions including Italy, Hong Kong, Turkey, Uzbekistan and South Africa. Some of the brands on display are Le Vian, Stuller, Shefi Diamonds, Uno de 50, Evocateur, EP Fine Jewelry, Braccio, KGM and others.
“At our core, JIS is a perfectly timed seasonal shopping and sourcing event that promotes business and relationships,” JIS show director Sara McDonough said in a statement. “We have an incredible range of new and returning exhibitors and pavilions to meet a variety of buyer needs.”
A new series of special events and activations is said to include a headshot studio where attendees can use a styling bar to get the camera ready and have a headshot taken for free, which will then be emailed to the attendee . The Product Showcase Runway, located at the front of the exhibition space, will show visitors the latest trends and best-selling items available for purchase in the exhibition space, and will provide a selfie photo opportunity at the end of the catwalk-style walk.
Daily Pavilion pop-ups treat attendees to free treats every day at 2:00 p.m., with churros in the ETS Pavilion on Fridays; Crêpes at the Silver & Fashion Pavilion on Saturday; and boozy melon bites or fresh fruit sticks in the Turkish Jewelers Pavilion on Sundays.
A new networking event for exhibitors, taking place on Friday, September 30 at 6:00 p.m., will give retailers the opportunity to connect with exhibitors new to JIS events and see their products in showcases while enjoying food and drinks.
On Saturday 1st October the ‘Cocktails & Connections’ event starts at 5:30pm on the exhibition floor with a live band, networking, dancing, cocktails and food.
The redesigned educational program features daily sessions on topics designed to help increase sales and grow your business. On October 1st at 11:30am Kathleen Cutler will present “Uncovering the Goldmine in Your Contacts”; at 2 p.m. Jennifer Shaheen presents “Growing Your Audience Reach Digitally”.
On Sunday, October 2nd at 11:30am Shaheen will present Countdown to Christmas: Your Digital Marketing Playbook; and Cutler present “A More Profitable Holiday With Your Precious 100” at 2:00 p.m.
“We are very excited to introduce new, thoughtfully produced events and training courses designed to enrich the attendee experience and add value to our buyers from around the world,” said JIS Marketing Director Lauren van Rensburg in a statement.
Last but not least, the Plumb Club Pavilion, located right at the entrance of Hall B of the event, will bring its coalition of members back to JIS in its distinctive black and purple color scheme. All retailers are invited to visit the Plumb Club’s Pavilion Lounge, which offers complimentary snacks and refreshments and a business center with laptops, printers and internet access. Visitors can also enter a daily sweepstakes to win up to $4,000 in merchandise credit to spend at the Plumb Club exhibitor of the winner’s choice.
“When you buy from a Plumb Club member, you are buying directly from a world class manufacturer. It guarantees participants the best prices, greatest value and highest possible margins for inventory,” said McDonough. “The Plumb Club exhibitors offer an immense range of products from high-quality fine jewelery to fashion and silver. Many members are also offering closeouts that will only be available during the JIS Fall Show.”
