CHOPARD LEAVES BASELWORLD

Creation of a new watch trade show in Geneva in collaboration with the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie

Chopard leaves Baselworld to create a new watch trade show in Geneva with the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie. The Show will be held early April 2021 at Palexpo, at the same time as Watches & Wonders.

The new show, which will be linked to Watches & Wonders, organized by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie, is to take place at Palexpo. The aim is to offer partner brands the best possible professional platform, applying a shared vision to successfully meet future challenges in the watchmaking industry. It will also give crucial prominence to the sector’s expertise and innovations, both in Switzerland and internationally.

Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, Co-President Chopard et Cie SA said: “Chopard first exhibited at the Basel fair in 1964 with a stand of some 25 square metres. The creation of this new watch show in Geneva, in parallel to Watches & Wonders, will allow us to better serve our watchmaking partners and our customers. Through the alliance, these grandes maisons will also be able to collaborate in promoting the values and best interests of Swiss watchmaking.”
