An exclusive preview of the latest releases and an immersive experience into the many facets of Fine Watchmaking, the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie is the first major rendezvous of the year and a must-go event for the watch community.
Innovative, interactive and connected, SIHH continues to evolve. At a time when digital plays a strategic role for business, SIHH stands out as a key event that creates multiple opportunities for networking and for learning. For the 20,000 attendees who are invited to discover the latest timepieces from the 35 exhibitors – 18 Historic Maisons and 17 independents in the Carré des Horlogers -, SIHH is still the launchpad for the year’s biggest trends in watchmaking, but not only. It’s also an immersive experience that is rich in content; an innovative, interactive and resolutely connected platform for the benefit of exhibitors, visitors and watch enthusiasts.
In a packed programme of events, the auditorium hands over the stage to exhibitors and to exchanges of ideas. Each day, guests and influential personalities from high-level disciplines such as fashion, design, the arts and new technologies come together to discuss the most topical issues. It offers a unique forum where brands can meet their fans and followers at keynote launches which are streamed live to social media.
Innovation is high on the agenda at SIHH with the LAB, a showcase for the latest technologies and inventions from exhibitors as well as start-ups with connections to the industry. Also new, SIHH switches to a faster-paced, four-day schedule that includes extended opening times. Members of the public again have their day, on Thursday 17 January.
