New York, NY--SELECT SHOW, LLC and CENTURION JEWELRY BY INVITATION ONLY, LLC have created a new partnership to jointly produce the SELECT shows, beginning with the events in Dallas at the Ritz Carlton (September 9-10, 2012) and in Connecticut at Mohegan Sun (September 23-24, 2012). The new name for the shows will be "SELECT by CENTURION".
"This partnership has been forged as a result of the shared philosophies and outstanding reputations of the SELECT and CENTURION shows," said Joe Carullo and Bryan Cohen, founders of SELECT. "We believe very strongly in producing events that help better fine jewelry vendors present their merchandise to their customers in safe, elegant and intimate venues at reasonable rates."
CENTURION likewise has always partnered with its exhibitors, who were given half the shares in the company by its founder Howard Hauben when the show was launched in 2001.
"We believe not only in partnering but in creating uncommon value for our exhibitors and retail attendees alike," said Hauben. "CENTURION SCOTTSDALE has been a strong success with that philosophy for the past 11 years. When we reintroduced CENTURION SOUTH BEACH this year, we lowered exhibit fees substantially so we could establish a long-term success together with our exhibitors and the result was a quick sell-out with a bright future."
The SELECT by CENTURION shows will continue the hallmarks of the successful SELECT shows, launched in 2010, with 40-50 exclusive exhibitors, breakfasts, seminars, lunches and evening receptions. The company will be overseen by Carullo, Cohen and Hauben, and CENTURION will act as day-to-day management beginning after the 2012 shows.
