"I work with only a handful of the vendors that showed here... although I knew about most of them. I took the time to introduce myself to many of the vendors. I asked them to tell me about themselves and their lines. I was pleasantly surprised to find many new vendors with whom I can do business. I discovered new sources and opened new accounts. Due to the intimacy of the event, I was able to stand at booths without being jostled or feeling I was taking too much of the vendor's time. I enjoyed the entire experience and, of course, I always appreciate the gracious accommodations provided to me."
Maria Frasca, Frasca Jewelers

"This was our first LUXURY Privé and we were very pleased with the event. We had a very nice flow of existing customers and new prospects, and had high quality interactions that are not rushed or pressured. The size of the show, the quality of the attendees, and the overall environment make this an excellent show for both exhibitors and retailers."
Dave Boeckel, William Henry
"There is a great variety of qualified buyers at LUXURY Privé and days are filled with back-to-back prosperous meetings. We met with multi-store chains from the east and west coast and were also introduced to two independent family owned businesses that were both a good match. Couldn't have asked for a better show and we've already signed on to exhibit again next year!"
Alan Esserman, Roman + Jules by First Image Design
"The overall LUXURY Privé experience is top-notch and an ideal environment for buyers and exhibitors alike to conduct business in. We loved the first day kick off – there was an awesome Bloody Mary bar, gourmet brunch options and live jazz music right on the salon floor – it set the tone and the energy was high all three days. We wrote orders with existing clients and new clients and liked how the days concluded on high notes with happy hours that everyone takes advantage of."
Jeff Loots, Henri Daussi
"LUXURY Privé delivers a show year after year that is like no other. The retailers who attend are serious, qualified, decision-makers and there's also a variety. We've conducted meaningful meetings with buyers we had touch points with in Vegas and were able to continue the conversation here. We also met with buyers who were not in Vegas. A lot of order writing all three days with new and existing clients and have exciting prospects; no matter which way you look at it, this show is unrivaled to any other on the calendar – it is simply the most effective use of time with lasting results."
Susan Klemt, Artistry
"The most valuable piece of this show is the people who run it. The JCK and LUXURY teams are experts in their field and if you trust them, they will bring you success. The partnership is an honest and friendly business deal that is ever-evolving and always collaborative from the bottom to the top. Their guidance and matchmaking have taken me from a design studio to a business. Based off my success in the Design Center at JCK Las Vegas, I was excited to try LUXURY Privé and it exceeded all expectations. The intimate environment, paired with treats and cocktails on the floor have everyone relaxed and in positive spirits, an atmosphere conducive for business. Every retailer I spoke with was the decision maker and to get the opportunity to showcase your collections and tell your story to retailers of that quality is invaluable."
Ezra Solomon, Avigdor
"Very pleased with this event – there was a great turnout of quality retailers. We opened orders with existing clients and developed a ton of new business. The networking events are fun and designed for everyone to unwind so we really appreciate those and although we will miss the Waldorf, we are excited for the move to the InterContinental in 2017!"

Antonio Cardamuro, Miseno
"Again, LUXURY has done a great job attracting high quality retailers in a high class venue."

"The nice part about LUXURY Privé is the quality stores that are brought in. With the more intimate style of show, the quality of buyers is top of line and they are willing to buy and discuss building out a business plan with you."

"Bigger shows can be chaotic or you have no-shows, so you might not get to see everyone. Here, we were able to make up for any missed opportunities and connect with all those stores we didn't see in Las Vegas."
William Dilamani, Dilamani
