More than 24,000 visitors took part in this year’s Inhorgenta Munich watch and jewellery trade show in Germany, a 51 per cent rise in attendance.
With the trade show spanning four days, attendees from 90 countries participated alongside more than 800 exhibitors, a 10 per cent rise in participation.
Stefan Rummel, CEO of organiser Messe München, said that 49 per cent of exhibitors came from abroad, the highest level of international participation the event has recorded to date.
“Inhorgenta Munich is back in a spectacular way, more international than ever and strikingly confirmed as the most important business platform for the watch, jewellery, and gemstone industry in Europe,” he said.
“The foundation has been laid for further international growth for brands and retailers in 2024, when Inhorgenta Munich celebrates its 50th anniversary.”
After Germany the countries most commonly represented by exhibitors were Italy, Belgium, India, Austria, and Poland.
