Dear Exhibitors, Dear Visitors,
With 2022 drawing to an end, this year has seen a strong recovery in the high-precision sectors, especially in the Swiss watch and jewellery industry, which has set new records for export sales – a development we are delighted to see. This trend had already become clear during the last EPHJ Show in June. Our subsequent satisfaction survey of exhibitors revealed that 84% of them had done business at the show or had very promising prospects for the near term – further evidence of just how valuable and useful EPHJ is. Some might think – and understandably so – that attending a trade show is not really necessary when order books are full and personnel have too much work already, but our 20 years of history and market expertise prove the opposite. For it is during the good times that we need to prepare for bad times. There will be other crises, we can be sure of that. Hence the importance of properly holding your ground, defending your market share against the competition, meeting your customers and keeping in touch with prospects. EPHJ is and will remain the only platform in the world where nearly 20,000 Swiss and international visitors meet every year representing all the major watch and jewellery brands, as well as medtech and microtechnology companies. There are no other opportunities for meeting all these players in the space of just a few days. EPHJ’s success over the last 20 years is the finest demonstration of this. With that in mind, we hope to see you all from 6 to 9 June in Geneva! Until then, the entire EPHJ team wishes you very happy new year!
