RAPAPORT... JA New York changed the dates for the upcoming winter JA New York show to January 22, 23, and 24, 2012. Drew Lawsky, group show director for JA New York Shows, explained, ''We received feedback from exhibitors and retailers alike that it would be beneficial to their businesses if we changed our show time to the new January dates.

''Our goal is to make doing business at JA New York convenient and easy, and we are always open to the feedback we receive from the community. The date-change worked best for the majority,'' Lawsky concluded. 

Joe Carullo, president of KC Designs, said that the date change was a "plus" for the JA New York Winter Show. ''JA New York has always been the first show of the year for the industry. I believe the jewelry industry needs a strong JA New York to start each and every year so it’s very important not to overlap with other international shows.''

Catherine Chan, general manager for the Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers Association, who organizes the Hong Kong Pavilion at JA New York Shows, said, “The first and most important reason for the change of date is that the need for stock replenishment is greater in January and early February than in March. It has been noticed that after the traditional sales peak seasons of Thanksgiving and Christmas, jewelers have the need to replenish their stock, and such need is at its greatest in late January.”

The JA New York Winter Show will be held at the Jacob K. Javits Center for three days beginning January 22.

The show will be open:
9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. on January 22
10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. on January 23
10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on closing day, January 24.
