Messe Basel, Basel, Switzerland


Baselworld -

Baselworld is the largest and most influential exhibition for the watch and jewellery industry worldwide. It started in 1973, gradually becoming a key event for more than one luxury goods sector. Now, more than 30 international organisations and committees are attending Baselworld. They discuss innovations and set global trends in the sparkling world of diamonds, gemstones, pearls, luxurious jewellery and watches. There is no other platform in the sector where trade visitors can speak with CEOs and company owners of the top brands in person, or receive industry insights from the heads of the world’s leading industry associations.

However, Baselworld is not only bringing glamour and networking together, it is an unmatched business platform for companies willing to diversify their supply chain, strengthen their positions, develop or nurture partnerships. The last edition attracted more than 1000 exhibitors from 40 countries and over 106,000 visitors from 100 countries. What makes the exhibition tick is the support and ever-increasing interest of industry leaders from all five continents. The world’s most renowned brands display their collections exclusively at Baselworld and choose not to attend any other exhibitions, adding extra value to visitors’ experience and potential business outcomes.

As a well-established meeting place for the global watch and jewellery industry, Baselworld provides unique overview of its sectors in their diversity, and continues to expand its influence. Make sure you save the dates of the upcoming edition to your calendar and take your share of its success.
