In light of continued concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, including travel restrictions both domestically and internationally, as well as ongoing restrictions on large group gatherings, U.S. Antique Shows has made the decision to postpone the annual Original Miami Beach Antique Show (OMBAS) to March of 2021. Originally slated to take place in late January, the new show dates are Friday, March 12 to Tuesday, March 16, allowing for a show that runs over the course of a full weekend.
“Our community is incredibly eager to come together again in person. After consulting with key members of our long-standing exhibitors and attendees, as well as our advisory board, we made the decision to secure dates in mid-March in order to ensure maximum success for the event for all customer types,” explained Gannon Brousseau, EVP of the Emerald Jewelry Group. “The demographic of both exhibitors and attendees of the Original Miami Beach Antique Show is international; moving the dates to March will ideally allow for increased participation for overseas customers seeking to travel to Miami.”
Now in its 57th year, OMBAS showcases antique and vintage jewelry, watches, furniture, art, home dé cor and collectables from over 700 vendors hailing from over 30 countries. The event also features several educational opportunities, including its popular Jewelry History Series, Appraisal Day, and complimentary guided educational tours. OMBAS will once again be held in the Miami Beach Convention Center, which recently underwent a $620 Million renovation. This state-of-the-art facility now boasts LEED Certification, which indicates a high level of indoor environmental quality, a striking new exterior, and beautifully landscaped public parks, allowing for an all-encompassing show experience.
