The JA New York Show will partner with the NY NOW home-and-lifestyle exhibition next year for an extended four-day event, said Rapaport.
The two event will be co-hosted from August 11 to 14, 2019, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. The shows will remain distinct entities, attendees can use one pass to enter both fairs.
“Partnering with the JA New York shows for our summer show will provide added value to both our exhibitor and retail partners,” said Kevin O’Keefe, senior vice president of NY NOW. “Our fine and handcrafted jewelry exhibitors will now have the ability to market their work to more traditional, fine jewelry stores, and those of our existing retailers who carry fine jewelry will gain access to a much greater breadth of product offerings.”
