INHORGENTA MUNICH runs Feb. 18-21.

(Press Release) Trade show INHORGENTA MUNICH will feature an innovative seminar program from Feb. 18 to 21, including a lecture by Jeremy Abbet, creative evangelist at Google, on the store of the future.

The event’s 2017 edition is entirely characterized by digitalization.

“Digital distribution channels are sustainably changing the consumer behavior and thus also the jewelry and watchmaking industry,” said Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München. “It is especially retailers whom we would like to equip with suitable approaches and new strategies for coping with these challenges. For we do not only understand ourselves as sparring partners but also as trendsetters.”

Consequently, Abbet will give a lecture on Feb. 20 on the topic: “The store of the future—concepts and ideas.” In another lecture, Maximilian Hemmerle, CEO of the Renésim jewelry company, will show how e-commerce and store-based specialist trade harmonize with each other. Dr. Jens Rothenstein from the IFH Institute for Retail Research invites the audience to attend his lecture entitled “The Online Shopper of Today and Tomorrow.” And Jörn Weiss, CEO of the internet agency Weiss & Urban, will give a lecture with the title: “Think Digital!—Brand Management in the Social, Search & Storytelling Age.”

A new addition to the program will be the Gemstone Forum. Here, gemstone experts Joanna Hardy, Yianni Melas, Dr. Claudio Millisenda and Richard Drucker will share valuable knowledge with the visitors of the trade show in Munich.

Exhibition Director Stefanie Mändlein said: “We have compiled a program which matches the multitude of different aspects of the jewelry and watch industry perfectly and simultaneously facilitates discussions.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
