Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva (SIHH) and Baselworld

A force to reckon with…


When one thinks of watch fairs, two names that come to mind are the SIHH and Baselworld. From 2020, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva (SIHH) and Baselworld in Basel, the two major events in the watch industry, will synchronise their calendars. In 2020, the SIHH will be held from 26 to 29 April in Geneva, followed immediately by Baselworld from 30 April to 5 May in Basel. The calendars have been synchronised until 2024.

For visitors attending both events, and in particular those from other continents, these agreed dates will make their
trips to Switzerland far easier. This important and essential breakthrough for the Swiss watchmaking industry is also welcomed by major players in the sector.

Created in 1991, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) focuses on Haute Horlogerie, and now
welcomes 35 exhibiting Maisons, 17 of which are part of the “Carre´des Horlogers”. For over 100 years, Baselworld has been The World Watch and Jewellery Show. Amongst its exhibitors are Rolex, Patek Philippe, LVMH and Chopard,
alongside exhibitors who are world leaders in the domains of jewellery and precious stones, in addition to those of technical industries.
