LUEUR - THE GLINTING NEW KID ON THE BLOCK IN NY
The word LUEUR meaning to glow, glimmer, gleam or glint is an inspired name choice for this exclusively chic antique jewellery and watch show, featuring the most elite purveyors of antique, estate and vintage jewellery and watches.
Perfectly timed for the upcoming festive holiday season, LUEUR will offer jewellery retailers exclusive buying opportunities with trade-only hours on the show’s first day. The show’s remaining three days will be open to the public. To further support the jewellery trade, LUEUR’s dates are scheduled to immediately follow the International Watch & Jewellery Guild (IWJG) October show in New York City.
With more than 150 of the most elite dealers, LUEUR provides access to historical and unique merchandise showcased in a relaxed setting for customers and exhibitors to enjoy the shopping experience. Elegant signed pieces from famous names including Cartier, Tiffany’s, David Webb, Harry Winston, Patek Philippe, Van Cleef & Arpels and many others permeate the show floor. In addition, all categories of jewelry such as cameos, tennis bracelets, rings, decorative necklaces, brooches, gemstones and pendants will be available. These stunning collections represent all eras of jewelry history from the Edwardian to contemporary periods.
Proving that if you "build" it they will come, Dan Darby, Emerald Expositions vice president and U.S. Antique Shows general manager told Antiques News & Fairs: “With exhibit space nearly sold out in the first week of its announcement, LUEUR is on track to be one of U.S. Antique Shows’ most successful launches. To further capitalize on excitement already surrounding this show and by holding the event at the Javits Convention Center, we believe this will establish LUEUR as one of the industry’s most important events.” Emerald Expositions, the parent company of U.S. Antique Shows, produces two events at the Javits Convention Center in late October that draw collectively nearly 30,000 buyers.
LUEUR is perfectly positioned to draw additional retail sales reaching more than 22,000 luxury product buyers attending the PhotoPlus International Expo. Each attendee will receive complimentary admission to the show. The show will also gain trade sales, reaching 7,500 jewelry professionals, from those attending JA Special Delivery who will also be given complimentary admission. Plus, LUEUR’s participating dealers will also attract buyers to the show. U.S. Antique Shows will provide 50 complimentary passes to each dealer to distribute to their clientele.
The Javits Convention Center has undergone a comprehensive, state-of-the-art renovation that has transformed the iconic facility into a world-class convention center that rivals any venue used for exhibits and conferences. The Hudson Yards project is opening its first phase in 2016. LUEUR will be strategically placed to capitalize on the largest private real estate development in the history of the U.S. as well as the largest development in New York City since Rockefeller Center. The site will include more than 17 million square feet of commercial and residential space.
Producing LUEUR at the Javits Center in October 2015 ensures that the show’s dates and location are renewable for years to come. Show times are Friday, October 23 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. for the jewelry trade. LUEUR will be open to the public Friday, October 23 from 1-7 p.m., Saturday, October 24 from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday, October 25 from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. Admission is $20 and is valid for all three days of the show.
