MJSA Expo

MJSA ExpoThe Show for Professional Jewelry Makers
March 15-17, 2020
Javits Center, New York City

"Attendance was excellent, and people were in a spending mood."

That’s how Dave Siminski described the atmosphere of the 2019 MJSA Expo, the industry’s longest-running show dedicated to professional excellence in jewelry making and design.

Siminski, the vice president of sales and marketing at United Precious Metal Refining in Alden, New York, was among the many exhibitors at this year’s show, which ran March 10-12 at New York City’s Javits Center. Over the course of those three days, more than 3,000 buyers crowded the aisles searching for not just the latest equipment, supplies and services for jewelry making and design, but also business solutions.

MJSA Expo has long been a hub for jewelry manufacturers, designers, and trade suppliers and contractors to connect, establish relationships, and learn about the latest industry trends. From its start in 1968 in New York City’s old Americana Hotel (now the Sheraton in Times Square), MJSA Expo has evolved to become the trade show dedicated to the best in jewelry-related tools, equipment, supplies and services—and its still showing the path forward.
