Nancy Robey Named Vice-President of VNU Expositions Jewelry Group.
Robey has been instrumental in guiding the Jewelry Group to a distinctive level since she joined VNU in 1994. She is responsible for both the development and launch of the Couture Jewelry Collection & Conference in 1995 and recently achieved success with the Couture Diamond Leadership Conference, launched to great reviews at the Plaza Hotel in New York City in October. Her knowledge of this selective market and understanding of the clientele have made the Couture shows the industry's premier event.
"I'm thrilled about my expanded role with the VNU Expositions Jewelry Group and looking forward to continuing to bring the best service and standards to our partners in the industry," says Robey. "The success of Couture has been exhilarating, and it emphasizes VNU's dedication to the needs of our exhibitors and buyers. I am excited to continue my work with Couture and also to work more closely with the outstanding JA New York shows, which are in a class of their own in terms of the breadth of their selection and the efficiency of their business environment."
The expansion of Couture will continue under Robey's leadership in conjunction with Show Director Mindy Fielman, with the debut of the Couture Pavilion at the upcoming JA New York Winter Show, January 23-25, 2005 at the Jacob Javits Center. This special exhibitor section is designed to expand upon the very successful Couture Club at JA New York, and will provide exhibitors and buyers with an array of special amenities - and of course, Couture's unparalleled business environment. The debut of the Couture Pavilion coincides with the move of the exclusive Couture Jewellery Collection & Conference from Phoenix to the brand-new Wynn Las Vegas this upcoming spring.
The move to Las Vegas will also signify the debut of Signature Salons, which will immediately follow Couture in early June. Signature Salons promises to be an exceptional event, showcasing the finest names in the jewelry industry in a world-class business and luxury environment. With the incredible demand for exhibitors to remain at the Wynn after Couture in its first year, Signature Salons is poised to become a premier jewelry event for the entire industry moving forward.
Robey will take on an expanded role in the leadership of the JA New York Shows, which include the JA New York Winter and Summer Shows and the JANY Special Delivery Show, which debuted this past October at the Javits Center in NYC. JA New York continues to lead the industry in attracting exhibitors from around the world to showcase their diverse collections in a highly organized, service-oriented, and professional environment. With the addition of the Couture Pavilion at the Winter Show, JA New York has raised the bar of expectations and promises to cater to the most discriminating buyers and exhibitors. Under Robey's direction and in collaboration with Drew Lawsky - JA Show Director, JA New York will remain at the forefront of the jewelry industry, setting trends and defining the jewelry exhibition experience for years to come.
Robey's influence in the jewelry industry has been widely acknowledged, and her work with Couture exemplifies her unparallel vision for both perfection and prestige. She received the NW Ayer Chairman's Award as Account Executive while working on the DeBeers account from 1987-1991 and the prestigious Women's Jewelry Association Award for Excellence in Marketing as an acknowledgement of her outstanding leadership in 1997. Prior to joining VNU, Robey held such esteemed positions as the Director of Advertising at Tiffany and President of her own consulting business, Robey Partnership.
