Baselworld, the world’s most important trade show for watches, jewellery and gemstones, announces numerous innovations for 2019. The show’s organizers responded with regret to Swatch Group’s announcement of its intention to stay away from Baselworld 2019, but the show’s management contradicted the representation published yesterday in the Sunday edition of the NZZ, which claimed that the exhibitors had not been notified about the new concept.
After seven successful days, Baselworld, the world’s most important show for watches, jewellery and gemstones, closed the doors of the 2018 edition yesterday evening. At the closing press conference, Baselworld’s Managing Director Sylvie Ritter summarised that this year’s edition proved to be successful. An overwhelming majority of the exhibitors reported very satisfactory business results. Although this year’s show had been two days shorter than previous editions, the overall number of visitors remained unchanged. The new format, fewer exhibitors and shorter duration, was positively received.
LEADING BRANDS VERY SATISFIED WITH THE SHOW’S START
