Las Vegas Show Report: This year was the first year that the AGTA show and JCK were in different venues in the city. We exhibited with AGTA at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Moving your booth within a show can be upsetting to buyers used to a well defined path at large trade shows like Vegas and Tucson. Moving the entire show can be downright confusing. Although there were a few bumps in the road, overall we were satisfied with the end results. Many repeat customers managed to find the booth and we even met a few new ones.
Blue sapphire, aquamarine, and spinel (grey) were our best sellers at the show. U.S. sourced sapphires from Montana were desirable as well. Garnets in all the flavors continue to be in high demand. The rare and unusual stones also fared well at our booth. Benitoite and grandidierite along with sunstone and sphene, to name a few, shared the limelight with the more traditional gemstones.
There will be a quick buying trip to Sri Lanka in the near future. If you have any special requests, be sure to let me know as soon as possible so that I can be on the lookout for those special items to help your business be more successful.
