The SMART Jewelry Show today announces that pre-registration for retailer attendees is currently running 44 percent higher than last year, pointing towards yet another record attendance level for the innovative trade show, which has attracted more retailers each year since its debut in 2009.
"We're thrilled at the buzz the 2014 show is generating among jewelry retailers," says Jim Reed, show director. "Every year, attendance at our show has increased. We're excited to see that trend continue, and even more excited that this year is looking stronger than ever."
With six weeks left to register for the Smart Show Chicago, Reed expects this year's numbers to continue to extend their lead on previous installments of the show.
"We've got some exciting new changes coming this year, with our on-the-floor SMART Block Party on Sunday night, a bunch of exciting new shopping incentives, and of course, a new spin on our best-in-the-business educational program."
