If Your Business is Luxury, You Always Make Time For Couture
Perfectly timed to coincide with Las Vegas Jewelry Week, Couture 2013 is just around the corner. From May 30 until June 3, the world’s leading jewelry and timepiece designers, retailers, and manufacturers will gather at the exclusive Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas for Couture. For over 16 years, the Couture show has been the destination of choice for the stars of the luxury goods industry. With every passing year, this prestigious event continues to gain steam within the luxury community and is now considered the preeminent place to showcase jewelry and watches.
According to Gevril President Samuel Friedmann, “the Couture show has become the place where established brands, rising stars, powerful retailers and luxury trend setters discover what is going to excite customers and drive sales during the year ahead.”
Friedmann says that participation in the influential Couture show is absolutely essential for Gevril Group. In 2012, Gevril showcased virtually all of the 40 fine timepiece brands it represents, in the Wynn Hotel’s spectacular Chambertin 2 Ballroom. During the five-day event, the show generated much more traffic and interest than the company initially anticipated. “We had success with every price point. Even drop-ins led to serious discussions,” said Friedmann.
This year, Gevril Group will once again be showcasing many of their prestigious brands at the Couture Time exhibit; including world renowned names such as Fortis, Gevril, Versace, Ferragamo and Versus. Joining Gevril at Couture are industry leaders like Stefan Hafner, Chopard, Bell & Ross, Bvlgari, Perrelet, David Yurman and many others. The prestigious Watch Journal will be returning as co-host of Couture Time in 2013. Watch Journal is the first luxury magazine built around watches and is widely regarded as a leading voice within the industry.
With new brands and exciting faces in attendance, the 2013 Couture show promises to be the best ever. Paul Ziff, President of Ferragamo Timepieces for the US and Caribbean, is looking forward to this year’s event. “We are very pleased to be participating in the 2013 Couture show” said Ziff. “Couture is the perfect venue for leading retailers to meet with executives from the industry’s top brands in a relaxed and luxurious environment. It is in this setting that new relationships are forged and existing partnerships strengthened.”
Kari Allen, President of Versace Timepieces for the US and Caribbean, agrees. “I am excited to share the new 2013 Versace and Versus Versace Watch Collections at the Couture show this year” said Allen. “We have gotten fantastic responses from all the top retailers making appointments for this year’s show. The Couture Show at the Wynn Las Vegas is where everyone comes to see all the top luxury watch and jewelry brands in one elegant setting.”
The Couture show proves once and for all that what goes on in Vegas doesn’t necessarily have to stay there. From May 30 until June 3, Gevril Group will give the world’s premier luxury retailers a unique opportunity to see, touch, and just say “wow” to one of the most diverse collections of fine timepieces available today.
Gevril Group will be at Couture from start to finish in the Chambertin 2 Ballroom. You can reach Gevril Group by email or by calling 1-866-425-9882. During the event, call Ruth Dombroff at 914-689-4360.
