Baselworld has partnered with the Luxury Venture Group to help give new jewellery companies a leg-up.
The aim of the collaboration is to jointly develop an international ecosystem for start-ups in the fields of watches, jewellery and related industries in order to shape the future of luxury through innovation, digitisation, sustainability and entrepreneurship.
“The comprehensive and sustainable direction of the Luxury Venture Group towards the innovation-driven development of young companies, especially in the watch and jewellery segment, closes an important gap from our point of view and fits perfectly with the new positioning of Baselworld 2020 as an experience platform,” says Baselworld chief executive officer, Michel Loris-Melikoff.
At next year’s Baselworld, Luxury Venture Day will bring together luxury start-ups, investors, disruptors and academia, creating a dynamic new ecosystem in the luxury sector with a focus on watches and jewellery.
At the show, Baselworld will broaden its scope as an experience hub, presenting numerous innovations and experience areas to serve as an accelerator for start-ups and provide fresh impulses to the industry.
Baselworld 2020 will present numerous innovations such as a new event and experience areas.
The next Baselworld will take place from April 30 to May 5 2020.
