MUNICH, Germany – More than 800 exhibitors joined the 2023 edition of INHORGENTA MUNICH, up 10 percent compared to the 2022 event, and visitor registrations exceeded the number of visitors who attended the show last year, organisers said.
Turnout was buoyant as the February 24-27 show kicked off, featuring the latest jewellery designs, watches, precious objects and accessories, underscoring the resilience of the higher end of the international market since the pandemic, with more consumers focusing on the investment potential of pieces at a time when inflation is eroding bank balances.
INHORGENTA MUNICH incorporated a variety of seminars, such as one by journalist Rachael Taylor on day one looking at the evolution of the family jeweller business model, including references to the growth of prestige brands such as Cartier and Chopard.
In the early evening visitors gathered for networking over drinks in the spacious main entrance area while a live band played, continuing a popular tradition at the show. Organisers looked forward to the prestigious INHORGENTA AWARD gala evening at BMW Welt on February 25 (day two), celebrating the achievements of designers and brands.
