JOGS Gem & Jewelry Show Heading to Palm Springs This Fall

The inaugural event is slated for Oct. 21-24 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

Palm Springs, Calif.—For the first time, the JOGS Gem and Jewelry show is heading to California. 
Show organizers have announced a new event, JOGS Palm Springs, slated for Oct. 21-24 at the Palm Springs Convention Center to allow buyers the chance to stock up for the holiday season. 
Just like its flagship Tucson event in another part of the Sonoran Desert, the Palm Springs show will feature such categories as jewelry and watches, gemstones and diamonds, rocks, crystals, minerals, rough material, fossils, home design, and much more. 
The event offers buyer registration for retailers with a tax ID, which is free, and guest tickets for those who don’t have a gem or jewelry-related business with valid tax ID. 
The early bird deadline for exhibitors to apply is July 15.

JOGS International Exhibits also has two upcoming events in Tucson planned: one on Sept. 3-6 at the Tucson Expo Center, providing another chance for holiday re-stocking; and the second on Jan. 26-Feb. 6, 2022, held during the annual Tucson gem shows at the start of the year.
