Scott Kay to Join LUXURY & JCK Las Vegas 2013

Acclaimed Bridal Designer Joins LUXURY & JCK Las Vegas Shows

Norwalk, CT (February 14, 2013) - JCK Events announced today that the LUXURY and JCK Las Vegas 2013 shows will welcome veteran bridal brand/designer Scott Kay to its roster of exhibitors. The addition of the industry icon will further enhance the impressive designer bridal portfolio. The LUXURY show is set to take place May 28th to June 3rd, JCK Las Vegas runs May 31st through June 3rd, at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.

Scott Kay, the eponymous bridal jewelry collection launched in 1984, has been a beacon of the bridal jewelry industry for nearly 30 years. Designer Scott Kay’s artisan quality craftsmanship, innovative design and forward-thinking use of metals has served as an inspiration for the category, including both men’s and women’s designs, and has paved the way for a successful fashion component as well. Scott Kay’s uncompromising design philosophy and the resulting collection have translated into marked success at the retail level and an impressive level of consumer awareness.

"We are extremely pleased that Scott Kay will be joining the JCK family," says JCK's Yancy Weinrich. "To add such an in-demand and noteworthy designer talent to our portfolio brings the LUXURY and JCK experience to another level for our attendees. Scott has been a bridal tour de force for years and given so much to this industry, that it is an honor to have him represented alongside our collective of remarkable brands."

On the day of the announcement, by phone, Scott Kay added "I have decided to showcase our work at LUXURY and JCK for quite a few reasons, namely that JCK’s range of retailers and merchants fits the growing dynamics of where our industry is moving. Some of the best, most knowledgeable jewelers attend JCK for raw materials and these are the people I am trying to engage; those looking for the real, unique craft of jewelry. As a specialist in the bridal category, and as an artist, I love to push the envelope with my sculpture. My range (a 40,000 person audience) and JCK’s range makes this the appropriate stage for my brand and passion.  I joined JCK for the quality, audience and diversification. I also love the seven day format; the convenience for my clients played a big role is this decision."

In addition to JCK’s and Scott Kay’s excitement over the announcement, some key jewelry insiders, from both retail and brand-side, weighed in:

Jennifer McCullough, of Smyth Jewelers and LUXURY advisory Board member remarked, "I can't begin to share how excited I am that Scott Kay is joining LUXURY and JCK.  This will make it easier for me to see first-hand his new launches and designs in Las Vegas.  Scott Kay’s new bridal and fashion lines will supersede everyone’s expectations, including his existing accounts and people who are not yet familiar with his vision as a designer. I know retailers will feel he is a valuable addition to LUXURY and JCK."

Joel Schecter, CEO of Honora, shared, "We were thrilled to learn that Scott Kay will show at LUXURY and JCK this year. The addition of Scott Kay the company, as well as Scott Kay the person---one of the few real artists in our industry---continues to validate and strengthen the LUXURY model as the most important branded high- end show in Las Vegas. Scott is the God Father of bridal jewelry and his passion for sculpture is second to none. Great move Scott."
