Inhorgenta Munich has now opened applications for its inaugural awards taking place during the 2017 edition of the trade show.

The Inhorgenta Awards will recognise the special products and services of the jewellery and watch industry across six different categories. The respective winners will be decided by a top-class independent jury.

Alongside ‘Fine Jewelry—Best Brand of the Year’ and ‘Fashion Jewelry—Best Brand of the Year’, there will be one award each for designers, watch innovations as well as for jewellers. In addition, there will be a “Best Piece of Jewelry’ audience award.


Jewellery industry peers looking to enter the awards can fill out an application on Inhorgenta’s newly established website, where tickets can also be bought for the awards presentation.

The presentation of the Inhorgenta Awards will take plance on February 19 at the Postpalast in Munich.

“We are very happy that the application phase for the Inhorgenta Awards is starting now and we are already very much looking forward to the diverse submissions”, says Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München.

Applications can be submitted until January 15, 2017. Even those who do not participate in Inhorgenta Munich may compete for the awards.
