London’s Evening Standard splashed with news yesterday that The Londoner, a five-star “super boutique” hotel that will host this year’s WATCHPRO SALON, will open in September.
WATCHPRO SALON takes place on November 12 and 13 at the 350-room ultra-lux hotel, described by the Standard as “London’s biggest hospitality launch since the start of the pandemic”.
The Londoner hotel has confirmed that the 16-storey hotel, where rooms start at £400 per night, will press ahead with the opening in a major boost for the West End.
It is described as an “iceberg” hotel, because it has a six level basement, one of the deepest in the world. Three of those basement levels will be used for WATCHPRO SALON, which makes it highly secure for the prestige watch brands exhibiting, and a new level of luxury.
The Londoner has six restaurants and bars, a cinema, 25-metre pool and a 6,000 square foot ballroom, which will be the main event space for WATCHPRO SALON.
Currently confirmed exhibitors for the luxury event include:
Bonhams ‧ British Horological Institute ‧ Christopher Ward ‧ DOXA ‧ Grand Seiko ‧ Junghans ‧ Laurent Ferrier ‧ Michel Herbelin ‧ Parmigiani Fleurier ‧ Pequignet ‧ Scatola del Tempo ‧ Schofield ‧ Swiss Kubik ‧ Tribus ‧ Voutilainen ‧ William Wood Watches ‧ Zeitwinkel
