Miami Beach, Fla.–The Miami Beach Jewelry & Antiques show has announced a new name.
Now known as the Miami Beach Jewelry & Watch Show, the show debuted in February. It is organized by the Palm Beach Show Group, which is also behind the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show happening this week, as well as several other antique-centric shows held around the country.
The Palm Beach Show Group said in a press release that input from exhibitors and market trends spurred the name change.
“The jewelry market is strong and getting stronger. The demand by collectors for quality luxury accessories from all categories can’t be ignored,” said Miami Beach Jewelry & Watch Show Director Andrea Canady.
“The presence of jewelry at the Miami Beach Show is unparalleled with an emphasis on antique and estate jewelry, especially the periods of art deco, retro and art nouveau as well as signed pieces. The number of exhibitors currently participating in the show that deal in rare jewelry and timepieces rivals all shows in the South Florida region. We want the name of the show to specifically denote the inclusion of jewelry and watches, which will allow us to better focus marketing and promotion efforts to strengthen our position as the premiere destination for fine jewelry and watch buyers and collectors.”
For its second iteration, the Miami Beach Jewelry & Watch Show will return to the Deauville Beach Resort from Feb. 1 to 4.
Palm Beach Show Group President and CEO Scott Diament said, “I foresee the Miami Beach Show becoming an iconic event in the industry. We believe this event cultivates an ideal atmosphere for both jewelry retailers and the general public, offering them the opportunity to purchase from many of the industry’s most reputable jewelry dealers. Our intent is to attract even more collectors, jewelry buyers, watch dealers and industry professionals.”
