(Press Release) Inhorgenta Munich is set for Feb. 16-19, and one of the trade show’s highlights enters the second round: the Inhorgenta Award. The award presentation by Inhorgenta Munich 2018, Europe’s largest trade show for jewelry, precious stones and timepieces, is the culmination of the four-day industry event. The Award honors special design products and achievements and is presented in seven categories this time: Fine Jewelry, Fashion Jewelry, Designer of the year, Watch Design of the year, Smart & Connected Watch of the year, Retailer of the year—and the audience prize Best Piece of Jewelry.

The second Inhorgenta Award points the way again. The get-together of industry experts, manufacturers and customers at the trade show provides the perfect setting for awards for special designs. However, this means much more for the industry than just celebrating itself: “The Award increases public awareness of jewelry and watches”, says Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München. In addition, manufacturers receive enormous support in their sales efforts according to the Messe CEO.

All manufacturers and designers of jewelry and watch collections are entitled to participate—even those who do not participate in the trade show may present their candidacy. A top-class jury, composed of prominent and professionally competent representatives from the show, design and model business, will select the Award winners. When the red carpet for the Inhorgenta Award will be rolled out in February, three new faces will enrich the team around star presenter Alexander Mazza:

Barbara Becker, a native of Heidelberg, is a well-known actor and TV presenter. Moreover, she is herself a designer of jewelry and fashion.

Patricia Riekel, the Grande Dame of German people journalism. She has been at the top of the [German] magazine “Bunte” as an editor-in-chief and most recently as a publisher for 20 years.

Markus Hilzinger. The multi-award winning interior designer and product designer is an expert for interior design and decorations. According to the “AD Architectural Digest” magazine, the Berliner-by-choice ranks among Germany’s “top 50 designers”.

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
