Since 1997, IFJAG has been the global source for trend-setting fashion jewelry, accessories, and private label products for wholesalers and volume retail buyers. IFJAG’s goal was simple: be the voice of its members instead of dominating them with a board of directors.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of IFJAG. IFJAG was founded in 1997 by seven former members of the United Jewelry Show (UJS), who felt they did not need permanent showrooms and wanted to have hotel shows in conjunction with UJS but were denied. IFJAG’s very first show was held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island, with only 20 exhibitors. Shortly after, UJS disbanded, and it’s 200 attendees joined IFJAG.
Flash forward 20 years later, IFJAG currently sponsors three hotel shows a year—one in Las Vegas and two in New York—with thousands of buyers from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Mexico in attendance annually. Buyers know they are getting a unique one-on-one experience with designers, importers, and manufacturers when they visit one of IFJAG’s shows.
IFJAG would like to thank all of its exhibitors and attendees for 20 years of great experience. Here’s to many more!
