JA New York's Spring Show to Return in 2022

The New Designer Gallery will also make its comeback.

The JA New York spring show will return in March 2022 and so will its New Designer Gallery.
New York—JA New York will re-launch its spring show next year, citing a high demand for in-person events and trade shows.
The show will be held March 20-22, 2022, at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
“The demand to re-establish our March event has been resounding and we are committed to servicing our exhibitors and retail partners with an event that will help foster the success of their businesses,” said Mark Lind, the new group show director for JA New York Shows, in a press release.
The last JA New York spring event took place in 2019. 
In 2020, it was one of the first jewelry trade shows to be nixed as COVID-19 and accompanying lockdowns gripped the United States.
This year, JA New York returned to the trade show calendar for the first time since the pandemic started, with the summer edition returning in August. The same month, Las Vegas jewelry trade shows also made their comeback. 

The return of JA New York Spring in 2022 means the New Designer Gallery, which has been a fixture of the show for 45 years, will also be back.
The gallery has brought now-prominent designers to the spotlight, including David Yurman, Paul Morelli, and Alex Sepkus.
As in years past, in 2022 one designer from the gallery will be selected the Mort Abelson New Designer of the Year. 
The winner, voted on by a group of retailers and press, will receive, for the first time in the award’s history, a $5,000 cash grant and free booth space in the Design District at a future JA New York show.
The Design District section highlights up-and-coming designer talents.

Applications to exhibit in the New Designer Gallery are now being accepted.

“JA New York shows have long been a go-to destination for both regional and international retailers looking to fill their cases with both current and collectable pieces that their customers are seeking,” said Lind.
There also will be multiple international pavilions on the show floor, including Hong Kong, the National Chinese American Jewelry Association, and the newly added India and Turkey sections.
As in previous years, the show is co-locating with the MJSA Expo, which will take place in Hall D with a connecting entrance to the JA New York show floor.
