Inhorgenta Europe 2010 - Zooms in on good and innovative design

Inhorgenta Europe 2010 - Zooms in on good and innovative design

16 February 2010

From February 19 to 22, 2010 inhorgenta europe will once again open its doors at the New Munich Trade Fair; this edition marks the 37th year. Despite the difficult global economic conditions, visitors to the EU’s largest trade exposition for watches, jewellery, gemstones, pearls, and technology can look forward to another exciting show and an extensive product selection, as seen by the positive registration numbers.

Close to 1,200 exhibitors from 45 countries will participate. In addition, like last year, Messe München GmbH expects approximately 30,000 international trade show visitors. These visiting industry professionals will be able to get up close and personal with the latest innovations in six halls spread over a total of 64,500 square meters of exhibition space at inhorgenta europe. Thanks to its early date, this exhibition is considered a key barometer for the future development of the demand for watches and jewellery for the entire year.

The upcoming inhorgenta europe will focus on ”Design.” There will be special exhibitions, such as the famous Antwerp “Silver Museum Sterckshof” in Hall C2, where visitors will also fi nd the new areas of “Design Porcelain” and “Silver Objects.” Furthermore, the hall has been redesigned, with a new concept for the “Designer Avenue.” A platform for the Innovation Award competition, the centre of the hall will host not one but two marketplaces. The goal is to further improve networking among jewellery creators, manufacturers, retailers, and customers.

Armin Wittman, Exhibition Director of inhorgenta europe, underlines the significance and topicality of good design: “Today’s customer sets great store by the option of expressing one’s own personality with jewellery. Excellent design has become the pivotal point for jewellery retailing. Even traditional manufacturers are increasingly starting to combine their technical expertise with innovative design.” The topic of design has been one of inhorgenta europe’s particular strengths for a long time, and not just in the “Design Hall” C2, which has become an international hallmark for this exhibition. This platform is unique throughout the world for distinctive designer jewellery and jewellery design, where more than 300 exhibitors show their pieces over 10,000 square meters of exhibition space.

The international jewellery scene is very familiar with the Innovation Award by inhorgenta europe, a competition showcasing the new generation of jewellery designers, presented annually since 2000. On the occasion of the award’s anniversary, there will be a “virtual exhibition” parallel to inhorgenta europe, with an online presentation of the award-winning pieces by jewellery designers from the last ten years. The Innovation Award has established itself as one of the world’s most important honours: close to 200 designers from all over the world are planning to enter the competition endowed with 2.000 in the anniversary year. The award will be presented in the categories Jewellery, Platinum, and Silver Objects.
