Jewelers International Showcase (JIS) was founded in 1979 to supply the Jewelry Trade Markets of Latin America, the Caribbean, Florida and the rest of the United States with just-in-time product during the busiest buying seasons of the year. Since the shows were established, they continue to be produced in the premier buying months of January, April and October; traditionally taking place in Miami Beach, Florida. By holding the shows in such a globally desired destination, the JIS Shows create the perfect mix of business and pleasure by allowing attendees to enjoy some of the world’s most famous beaches, world class dining, unsurpassed night life and even a post-show relaxing cruise.
JIS April was established to support buying for the prominent Mother’s Day market in Latin America. Referred to as “The Niche” show with its specific Mother’s Day heritage, the April Show also offers retailers the ability to purchase new inventory and restock after the busy holiday and Valentine’s Day selling periods. The April show provides an opportunity to fulfill inventory requirements until the October Show.
