WATCHPRO Salon, which took place from November 12 to 13 at The Londoner Hotel on Leicester Square, has instantly become the biggest and most successful watch show in the UK with 42 prestigious brands presenting their latest collections.
Dozens of retailers, scores of press and over 1,000 consumers attended the inaugural outing for the exhibition.
Rather than the usual postmortem, when exhibitors complain about the lack of quality and quantity of visitors, stall holders at WATCHPRO Salon universally praised the turnout.
Most made significant sales and many reported they had opened new retail accounts over the two days of the event.
They also praised the organisation, with a steady stream of valuable visitors attending special sessions for retailers, press and VIP customers across the two days.
They also attended a series of town hall talks covering topics including the rise of British watchmaking, capitalising on the explosion of independent watchmaking and how to work with influencers.
