JCK's Inspiring New Design Concept 
for Tucson Event

Supported by Newly Appointed Advisory Board of Industry Luminaries

As JCK embarks upon its third year in Tucson February 3-7, 2016 it comes with a revised concept befitting to the environment at the picturesque JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa and unlike any other in the jewelry industry. The natural beauty of the AAA four-diamond resort will serve as the jewelry industry’s winter oasis, open to all qualified retailers and featuring a new hosted buyer program. Offering a relaxing yet productive environment for business and networking, that is expected from a JCK Event, infused with the inspiration and imagination of Tucson Gem Week.

As in years past JCK Tucson will be open to all qualified jewelry retailers, complemented by an all new hosted buyer program. In 2016, hosted retailers will include qualified elite design, boutique and gallery buyers who will receive a complimentary hotel stay along with personalized vendor matchmaking and special amenities.

"We've listened to the jewelry community and what they want out of their Tucson experience,” said Katie Dominesey, Vice President for JCK Events. “We recognize that JCK needs to celebrate the eclectic and fun of Tucson while adding some finishing touches both on and off the show floor. Business days start with a morning hike, continue with treasure hunting for the best baubles, and end by the fire pit with colleagues—a truly well rounded business experience.”

The event takes place during Tucson Gem Week which includes events happening at over 40 sites around the city. JCK will offer improved and expanded transportation services providing a convenient, quick ride to/ from the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa to other events downtown. 

JCK Tucson’s new concept is reinforced by the distinguished members of its newly appointed Advisory Board including: Aaron Faber Gallery, Z Folio, Jack Lewis Jewelers, Alishan, Atelier Zobel, Michael Jensen Design and more.

“I’m delighted to join the JCK Tucson Advisory Board. Edward Faber and I fell in love with the JCK Tucson show this past February. It’s the sunsets on the terrace, the sunny blue skies all day and the relaxed atmosphere in which to do business. We were able to buy designer jewelry at the show in the luxurious JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa, meet new designers and friends at sunrise meditation or evening cocktails on the terrace, and still source gemstones from the many gem shows, all in a non-frantic atmosphere. We are looking forward to 2016 and the new designers and new lines that will be at the show, as well as good friends and gallery anchors,” said Patricia Kiley Faber, Aaron Faber Gallery.

JCK Tucson’s 2016 festivities will kick off on Tuesday (February 2) on the JW Marriott’s golf course, pairing together jewelry retailers, manufacturers and industry professionals for a scramble tournament benefiting Children’s Health Fund.
