I’d like to think that JCK is sort of like an American Baselworld. It isn’t, but it is a pretty good step in that direction. While combined with jewelry, JCK attracts a large number of watch brands and I will be attending it this year as a member of the press. This will be my first time going to such an event, so I will take my camera and trust me that I have some good meetings lined up. I might just possibly use up the full 12 gigs of memory card space I have on images over the next few days. There are two elements to the show. First are the expo halls where lots of the brands hang out showing of watches and talking about their products, and then there is all the private meetings and exhibits. Like I said, I have a fair number of appointments, so I should back with a nice haul full of juicy information images.
You can visit the exhibitor directory at JCK’s website. There are a lot of important brands, distributors, and watch brand group companies. If there are any specific brands you want me to go check out and report on, just let me know. The event will span through the Sand Convention Center (which is funny because the Sands hotel no longer exists), and in the Venetian hotel. The main show is going to be from Saturday May 31st until June 2nd. I will still probably post articles during most of that time though.
