Baselworld fair is canceled

Baselworld, the world’s largest watch show, has been canceled due to the Covid-19 coronavirus. Originally scheduled to take place in Basel, Switzerland during the first week of May, the annual fair has been postponed until January 2021.

Baselworld’s managing director, Michel Loris-Melikoff said in a statement, “We deeply regret having had to postpone the event as planned due to the coronavirus, in full consideration of the needs of the watch and jewellery industry to be able to benefit from the platform to develop their business.” He continued, “By postponing the show to January 2021, we have found a solution that enables the industry and all our customers to avoid losing a full year and at the same time reset their calendars for the beginning of the year, a period that is conducive to the presentation of their new products, new trends and order taking.”

We hope to meet with our guests and business partners in Baselworld as usual after these days.
