As Inhorgenta Munich closes its doors for another year, the organisers have reported a rise in visitors and exhibitors.
During the 2019 show, Inhorgenta welcomed around 27,000 visitors, with a particularly strong increase in trade professionals from abroad attending the four-day fair.
Attendees were able to visit 1,052 exhibitors from 41 countries (a 2.5% growth from last year).
Many exhibitors who showcased at Inhorgenta for the first time commended the fair for its organisation and quality of buyers.
First-time exhibitor and own of the namesake brand, Marco Bicego, shares: “Inhorgenta Munich was an interesting opportunity to strengthen our presence on the German market, which is very important to us.”
The 2019 edition opened with a glamerous jewellery show, attended by 400 invited guests from the worlds of business, media and culture. Afterward, exhibitors and industry visitors celebrated the opening of the fair together, where business continued to boom during the duration.
Alongside hosting a strong selection of fine jewellery, fashion designs, and timepieces, the Inhorgenta Awards also honoured the best of the jewellery business around the globe for the third annual year.
Chief executive officer of Messe München, Klaus Dittrich, says of the 2019 edition: “We actually were able to exceed our positive expectations once again. There was no trace of the economic downturn predicted by many experts. On the contrary: The industry is full of optimism going forward into 2019. In discussions with exhibitors and trade visitors they reported many positive business deals.”
Messe München hopes to continue this positive atmosphere at Inhorgenta Munich 2020, which will take place from February 14–17.
