The exhibiting Maisons have decided that Watches&Wonders will continue its successful run in Asia every other year, making it a Biennial. The next edition will be from September 27th to 30th 2017 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). At the same time, new developments are under consideration in other parts of the world.
When the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) Exhibitors Committee organised Watches&Wonders in Hong Kong in 2013, it created the very first exhibition of fine watches in Asia for end customers and the Asian press. An adventure that has been crowned with success. The latest edition of the fair, in September 2015, welcomed more than 20,000 visitors including 800 journalists from across the continent, an increase of 25% on the previous year. In just three editions, Watches&Wonders has emerged as the must-see event for Fine Watchmaking in the Asia-Pacific region.
Building on this success in Asia, the organisers of Watches&Wonders will examine possibilities for duplicating the concept in other world regions, alternating with Hong Kong. ￼
The fourth edition of Watches&Wonders will therefore take place in Hong Kong, at the HKCEC, from September 27th to 30th 2017. The exhibiting Maisons are determined to make this an event worthy of a public who will appreciate the full measure of this fascinating world, brought to them from Switzerland. Watches&Wonders 2017 is on its way!
