Pre-Registration Is Now Closed
Qualified buyers may register on-site 8:30am to show close each day. Please be sure to bring the necessary credentials if you will not already have a credentialed buyer badge from JCK, ACRE, Couture or Antique Jewelry & Watch Show.
All buyer badges are retrieved at the Registration counter.
Registration is free to qualified buyers and attendees of the Buyers Market of American Craft. If you have received a badge from another qualified Jewelry Week trade show, you will not be required to be re-badged. You will be issued a ribbon to affix to your badge in exchange for your business card. (Buyers also attending JCK are encouraged to pre-register for that event to facilitate badge retrieval.)
Buyers not meeting the above criteria must provide the following credentials to Registration:
- Federal Tax Return
- Sales and Use Certificate
- Business Check or Credit Card in Business Name
To establish proof of location, we must see one of the following:
- Store Lease
- Storefront Photo
- Advertisement or Brochure
To establish proof of craft, we must see one of the following:
- Purchase Orders
Buyer badges will be issued to those galleries that readily meet all of the above criteria.
“Trade” badges will be issued to other businesses that are within the trade but whose primary function is not the retail of craft. To verify trade status, we require proof of business as well as the following…
For an Interior Designer, a copy of your NCIDQ certification or decorator’s degree.
For a Corporate Gift Service or Event Coordinator, a brochure with examples of your work.
For a Temple Gift Shop, a letter from the rabbi listing all the volunteers of the shop.
For a Beauty Salon/Coffee Shop, a photo of your craft retail display.
For a Consultant, proof of professional affiliation in your field.
For a Corporate Buyer documentation of previous whole sale purchases
For a Non-Traditional Business, please present proof that you are invested in the craft community as a legitimate retailer.
The Buyers Market of American Craft is a wholesale show and not open to the public.
In order to protect the artists’ designs and intellectual property rights, we do not allow manufacturers, product development representatives or licensing agents on our show floor. Additionally, no solicitation or unauthorized photography is permitted on the show floor.
There is no cash and carry. Trade and buyer badges are not to be used for making personal acquisitions; we reserve the right to revoke badges if they are misused.
We appreciate your business and thank you for your professionalism in this matter.
