INHORGENTA MUNICH | Chairman Klaus Dittrich on INHORGENTA MUNICH 2018
Klaus Dittrich, Chairman and CEO of Messe München: The atmosphere was very positive. We only had a small growth last year, but I think many people came to INHORGENTA full of expectations. Based on all the discussions we held, both with exhibitors and visitors, INHORGENTA has certainly been an inspiration at the start of the year. The industry definitely faces challenges, the topic of digitalization preoccupies many people – online versus store trade – also the development in the watch market, which is no longer as dynamic as in recent years, worries some people. On the other hand, the enthusiasm for jewellery and watches was also noticeable at the trade fair. We tried to make them available to the public with various events, be it our Jewellery Show, or the INHORGENTA Award, to show a wider public how beautiful it is to wear jewellery and exquisite watches.
