JCK TORONTO OPENS WITH SOLID ATTENDANCE - UPBEAT ATMOSPHERE

JCK TORONTO OPENS WITH SOLID ATTENDANCE AND UPBEAT ATMOSPHERE

Networking, Education and Social Events Are Focus


JCK Toronto 2012, Canada's premier jewellery event, opened yesterday with a healthy start. The Show, organized by JCK Events and supported by the Canadian Jewellers Association, features over 150 jewellery brands and manufacturers and primarily serves retailers from the Ontario region of Canada.

JCK Events, along with supporter CJA, orchestrates JCK Toronto, providing the Canadian jewellery market with its largest buying event. Day 1 of JCK Toronto 2012 illustrated this with heavy foot traffic, strong interest in buying and attendance at the Show's various networking and educational events.

Sunday's educational program included a diamond mining exposé, an informed discussion on the advantages of selling palladium and a session dedicated to hiring practices and tips. Future seminars will feature important topics such as social media and crafting with palladium.

The Show's industry event this evening will welcome retailers and exhibitors, amid a myriad of activities: recipients of the CJA Chairman's Award will be honored, an 'Athlete Meet & Greet' will feature important players in Canadian sports and ELLE Jewelry will sponsor a fashion show highlighting their newest jewellery looks.
"Creating a dynamic show experience is becoming increasingly more important in our industry," said John Tierney of JCK Events. "It is our goal to provide value and an atmosphere of learning and socializing alongside the business transactions. The feedback from show-goers on Sunday was a positive affirmation of that initiative and we are looking forward to a great industry event tonight and a strong finish to the show."

Raffi D. from Adler Jewelry Wholesale, Toronto, ON, commenting on the experience of exhibiting for the first time, expressed an appreciation for such efforts, "We are new to the show this year and could not be happier at the end of Day 1. We met new contacts and wrote orders in addition to attending the seminar on mining and are gearing up for a fun night of socializing and networking. There is clearly no shortage of opportunities to take advantage of, so we feel great about the investment."

JCK Toronto will run through August 14th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada.
