Inhorgenta Munich “strengthened its position” as one of the world’s leading watch and jewellery trade shows with an increase in exhibitor and visitor numbers at its 40th edition last month.
Klauss Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Fair organiser Messe München,said 1237 exhibitors (nine per cent more than in 2012) presented their latest collections at the Fair.
In addition, around 30,000 trade visitors from 85 countries attended the Fair (around two per cent more than in 2012) with approximately one third coming from outside of Germany.
Dittrich said the Fair had consolidated its role as the leading show for affordable luxury in jewellery, timepieces and lifestyle.
“Inhorgenta Munich is no longer just the most important trade show for German-speaking visitors,” he said.
“It is clearly gaining in significance on an international level too.”
Dittrich added that the success of the Fair was confirmed by Messe München’s visitor survey in which 97 per cent of visitors assessed the trade show as excellent, very good or good.
According to the survey, 38 per cent of visitors expect Inhorgenta Munich to gain in importance in the next twelve months while 55 per cent assume it will remain of constant importance.
“The positive response from the trade visitors demonstrates the confidence enjoyed
by the trade show in the industry,” said Dittrich.
“We are pleased that we were able to satisfy our exhibitors and visitors with our revised positioning as a trend platform for affordable luxury and with the high-quality design concept.”
Inhorgenta Munich will take place from February 14 to 17 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre.
