Swiss trade show focuses on high-precision instruments needed for modern watchmaking


Industry leaders from the watch and jewellery sector are set to brush shoulders from fellow industry professionals that rely on high-precision skills within their work at an upcoming trade show.

Switzerland’s annual EPHJ-EPMT-SMT, which was founded with the aim of developing synergies between high-precision technology professions, places members of the jewellery and watch industry under the same roof as professionals that work within medical technology and micro-technology sectors.

More than 800 exhibitors from some twenty countries, including America, and 20,000 professional visitors are set to attend the 2018 edition of the show, which is taking place in Geneva from June 12 to 15.

A spokesperson for the show said: “A highpoint of the 2018 show: a gathering of leading watch-jewellery designers. They will meet to discuss current and future trends and the pivotal role that designers play between the brands and subcontractors active in these segments. Among the names put forward to attend: Richard Orlinski, Eric Giroud, Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and Pierre-Laurent Favre.”

Alexandre Catton, director of the Trade Show, added: “We hope to contribute to the emergence and development of young companies that are keenly focused on innovation and the value added they can bring to the different sectors present at the trade show.”

While the 2017 edition of the show welcomed over 800 exhibitors, show organisers are yet to reveal this year’s list. EPHJ-EPMT-SMT has stated it will confirm its exhibitors in the coming weeks.
