Las Vegas watches and jewellery show is 'great success'

First published: 11-06-2009

An event for watch lovers and buyers was not affected by economic worries, enjoying record-breaking attendances during its five days of exhibitions.

The 14th annual Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show brought together over 300 American and internationally-recognised dealers in vintage watches, including rare and antique timepieces.

All exhibitors reported favourable conditions at the expo, with attendance highs reflected by the second day's figures, which showed the highest-ever turnout for the event for any one day.

Andrea Canady, the fair director, said that watches still show strong sales under the event's banner and that it may prove to have an even stronger future.

She added: "We are extremely pleased that this year's showing continues to solidify the Las Vegas Antique Jewelry & Watch Show as the ultimate place for exhibitors to obtain the most coveted and finest pieces in jewellery, watches and gemstones."

The show took place in the world-famous MGM Grand, which featured as the main location for blockbuster movie Ocean's Eleven.
