Las Vegas–U.S. Antique Shows has announced that the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry and Watch Show will remain at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the foreseeable future.
The show moved to the convention center for the 2017 event, after previously being held at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, but show organizers initially had planned to move it back in 2018.
The announcement coincides with the news that the AGTA GemFair and the antique show will co-locate in 2019.
Emerald Expositions, which owns U.S. Antique Shows, said that the convention center has enough space to house both shows and allow for growth in the future.
“Our strong partnership with LVCC, coupled with our ability to co-locate with other complementary industry events such as AGTA GemFair Las Vegas, means that we are now able to expand our outreach to an increased number of global buyers and provide those buyers with a convenient location to satisfy many of their Market Week buying needs,” Katrina Canady, show manager for U.S. Antique Shows, said in a press release.
Senior Vice President of Emerald Expositions Jewelry Group, Gannon Brousseau, commented, “For seven years, the Paris Hotel has been an incredible home for us and has allowed us to establish a successful footprint in Las Vegas. While the move to LVCC in 2017 was intended to be temporary, the feedback we received from our vendors was so positive, we had to take that into consideration as we planned our 2018 event.”
He added that the LVCC’s proximity to its other Las Vegas event, the Couture show, gives them opportunities for cross-promotion and expansion.
In 2018, the antique show will take place from May 31 to June 3, running at the same time as The Couture Show, slated for May 31 to June 4.
