GJX is a “wholesale-to-the-trade only” show and is not a “business-to-business” trade show. GJX reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to determine if a buyer is qualified to attend the show based on the information provided by the registrant. Buyers must be engaged in the gem and jewelry (or its related products) industry.
No children under the age of 14 are allowed, including infants. A photo ID will still be required for all children over the age of 14. A passport, state issued ID or current school ID.
If you registered with GJX within the past 3 years, you are automatically pre-registered. Please come up to the Pre-Registered counter with your photo ID to receive your badge.
AGTA Badge Holders
GJX honors AGTA Buyer badges. Please come up to the Sticker Counter with your photo ID and business card in hand to have your badge validated. Attending the show with an AGTA badge does NOT automatically register you with GJX for future shows. To register directly with GJX, you can Pre-Register below or fill out a Buyer Registration form at the show, and provide the necessary requirements.
WE DO NOT HONOR AGTA GUEST BADGES. A guest validation may be purchased for $35 onsite.
BUYER REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS
1.) JBT # OR Resale License* / Wholesale Tax Certificate* indicating industry affiliation and dated within the last 2 years. *Note: If your business/resale license or tax ID certificate does not reflect that your company is engaged in the gem and jewelry (or its related products) industry, or if your state does not issue business/resale licenses, then you must provide copies of invoices for the purchase of gemstones, jewelry, precious metals or lapidary equipment made within the last year. Each invoice must reflect the purchase of multiple items and total at least $4,000.
2.) Professionally printed business card for each qualified buyer with first and last name as well as the company name matching the registering company.
Badges are not mailed in advance. You will receive a confirmation email with a barcode for each buyer, approximately 3 weeks prior to the show. Show your barcode along with your picture ID at either of our Pre-Registration counters to have your badge printed. Badges must be worn at all times in the exhibition hall. A $50.00 fee per badge will be charged for lost or misplaced badges.
Guests may not be pre-registered and must be registered on-site by a qualified buyer from the registered company. A registered company may have a total of 4 guests. Guest badges are $35.00 each.
Students currently enrolled in a gemstone or jewelry educational institution must register on-site. You must provide a current student ID from the school as well as paperwork showing recent completion of a course. All information provided must be in English. Students are not permitted to bring guests.
