Miami antique jewelry show changes venues

Next year’s Miami Beach Antique Jewelry & Watch Show will take place in a new location and debut a new name: the Miami Antique Jewelry & Watch Show.

Miami--Next year’s Miami Beach Antique Jewelry & Watch Show will take place in a new location and debut a new name: the Miami Antique Jewelry & Watch Show.

The show will move from its original location at the Miami Beach Convention Center to the Miami Airport Convention Center.

The Miami Beach Convention Center was unable to accommodate the later dates show organizers requested, said a representative for U.S. Antique Shows.

The new venue also is larger--the Miami Airport Convention Center is the city’s second-largest convention center, with 172,000 square feet of meeting and exhibition space. The show will utilize 76,300 square feet at the airport convention center, compared to the 21,200 square feet it used at the Miami Beach location.

Because of the extra room, U.S. Antique Shows is projecting a 20 percent increase in exhibitors.

“By moving this show to Miami, we’re able to respond to requests from our dealers and attendees by hosting this show in November versus earlier date patterns in September and October,” said Dan Darby, group show director for U.S. Antique Shows and vice president of George Little Management.

The Miami Antique Jewelry & Watch Show is scheduled for Nov. 14 to 16, 2014.

One last Miami Beach Antique Jewelry & Watch Show will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center from Oct. 25 to 27.
