AGTA Expands GemFair™ Las Vegas Space

(DALLAS, TX – August 23, 2022) – The American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) announced that the 2023 AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas has expanded its footprint at the JCK Show.  The AGTA pavilion for 2023 was initially contracted for 20,960 square feet.  Due to high exhibitor demand, AGTA and JCK have agreed to an additional 4,100 square feet expansion, bringing the new total to over 25,000 square feet.  AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas will continue to be located on the main floor next to the Luxury and Plumb Club Pavilions at the Venetian Expo.

“This is an exciting time for AGTA exhibitors,” said John W. Ford, Sr., AGTA CEO, “One of our long-term goals for our Association is to grow our GemFairs to afford our members an opportunity to reach more buyers.  Partnering with JCK to expand our space in Las Vegas is an ideal situation for our members.”

Earlier this year, AGTA and JCK reached an agreement that extended their partnership through 2025.

“When we came back to JCK this year, we had a smaller pavilion and it filled quickly,” said Kimberly Collins, AGTA President.  “It is so fulfilling to see us grow our space more than four times the size, knowing we are meeting the needs of our members. Thank you to Sarin Bachmann, Group Vice President of RX jewelry portfolio and the entire JCK team – they’ve been great to work with. The future of AGTA is bright!”

The 2023 AGTA GemFair™ Las Vegas will take place June 1 – 5, 2023, one day before the rest of the JCK Show opens.

“We are pleased to deepen our collaboration with AGTA, as our partnership continues to enhance the attendee experience to discover and source from the leading jewelry and gemstone companies,” says Sarin Bachmann, Group Vice President of RX jewelry portfolio. “Each show, JCK welcomes the largest and most comprehensive buyer attendees from all over the world who are looking to do business with trusted exhibiting companies like the AGTA community. We look forward to adding more color to the show floor.”
