RAPAPORT...  Organizers of the  19th annual Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show, held from  May 28 to 31,  reported that attendance at this year's show rose 6 percent.

"With the Euro at the lowest we've seen it in more than a decade, we were cautiously optimistic about the level of attendance and buying we'd see from international markets this year. While there were fewer international attendees, those who did attend came to buy and provided our dealers with some of their strongest sales," said Dan Darby, Emerald Expositions' vice president and U.S. Antique Shows' general manager. "The increase in attendance from the U.S. market helped us achieve our outstanding show results."

The Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show hosted nearly 400 exhibitors, according to Darby.

Doug Liebman of Douglas M. Liebman Estate Jeweler said, "The 2015 Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show was my all-time best show, not only for my current business, but for any company I have ever represented in my career. Highlights of the show were significant sales on important consigned diamonds."
Gus Davis of Camilla Dietz Bergeron Ltd. added,  "The Las Vegas show is one of the most remarkable shows in the nation because it hosts so many dealers of different backgrounds under one roof. I had extremely strong sales of important signed pieces this year at the show."

The next show for the group will be the New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show from July 24 to 27 at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan. U.S. Antique Shows is a division of Emerald Expositions, which also operates the Couture and JA New York shows and JA Special Delivery.
