n view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Watches & Wonders Geneva Exhibitor Committee has decided to cancel the physical Salon that would have been held at Palexpo from April 7 to 13, 2021. The decision, taken in close consultation with the principal stakeholders, is seen as the most responsible course of action, given the current health crisis and uncertainties as to how the situation may evolve.
In order to ensure business continuity, the decision has also been taken to ramp up the fair’s digital component and roll out an upgraded version of the digital platform that was introduced in April this year.
Designed to encourage communication and facilitate networking, this interactive experience will enable professionals – media, retailers and exhibiting brands’ clients – to discover the new releases for 2021
This all-digital event will demonstrate an open and cohesive mindset. All the brands taking part in Watches and Wonders Geneva will be present online in April 2021. Furthermore, the Exhibitor Committee wishes to invite other brands to join this digital edition, where up to 50 of the industry’s representative names will present their latest creations, expertise and unique identity.
The 2022 physical Salon will welcome more major players, in line with modalities set out by the Exhibitor Committee.
