American watch brand Jorg Gray will exhibit at the London Watch Show in 2014, marking its second appearance at the event.
At next year’s show, Jorg Gray will display a full ladies collection, after an initial launch at BaselWorld, in Switzerland. Claire Perkins, chief operations officer for Jorg Gray, said: "It is extremely important for the watch industry that the London Watch Show is a big success in 2014, as many retailers in the UK do not always have the time and/or budget to attend Basel or any of the other international watch shows."
Continuing, Perkins explained that: "Retailers will benefit as the show is on their doorstep; they can also familiarise themselves with up and coming new brands at the London Watch Show. By speaking directly to the brand owners and representatives, they will understand the history of how the brands were created."
The 2014 exhibition, which takes place on July 6-7, will once again be held at the stunning Freemasons’ Hall in the heart of London’s Covent Garden. To register, click here.
Jorg Gray is also adding to its team, and has named Robert Eden as its new sales manager. Bringing 15 years of experience to the brand, Eden will develop new sales and accounts. Previously, he focused on the John Roca collection for Jewellery House, where he acquired 44 new accounts for the line in nine months.
