Inhorgenta reported one of the most successful years in its 42 year history this weekend. The Munich watch and jewellery exhibition said that the number of international trade visitors rose strongly, reflecting the growing importance of Germany, and German brands around the world.
WatchPro magazine was a sell-out at the exhibition, which will encourage the title to invest in an even larger print run for next year’s show, which takes place from 12-15 February, 2016.
“The interest from exhibitors in the UK market was remarkable,” said Daniel Malins, commercial manager for WatchPro. “The comparative strength of the UK economy and its historic love of watches has brands beating a path to our door,” he added.
A total of 1055 exhibitors from 40 countries presented at Inhorgenta, which drew in a high quality audience of international and domestic buyers.
Over 26,000 visitors from more than 75 countries attended, according to the organiser.
“The trade show was characterised by a very positive mood. The numerous orders that were placed show that Inhorgenta Munich continues to be the most important platform for good business,” said Klaus Dittrich, chairman of the board of management of Messe München, which organises the exhibition.
