Every year more than 1,400 exhibitors, 150,000 visitors and 3,500 journalists from international locations come together for the Baselworld 8 day Watch and Jewellery Show. It is estimated that around 80% of global sales of watches and jewellery are generated at this renowned annual event.


Although the B2B trade fair is the most important event of the year for those within the industry the show is also open to the public. The event allows the general public to peruse as they desire, however, does not offer the opportunity for shopping. Sylvie Ritter, Managing Director of Baselworld, confirms: ‘Baselworld 2014 is open to everyone. Nowhere else in the world can a visitor gain a more complete insight into the world of watches and jewellery.’
