Coronavirus: Baselworld postponed to January 2021

Following the many cancellations of other major events in Europe, Baselworld will not happen this year. Baselworld announced the decision to postpone the show to Thursday 28th January to Tuesday 2nd February, 2021. This change is due to concerns related to Covid-19 pandemic (Coronavirus).

Baselworld has taken this difficult decision in close consultation with its partners and the health authorities in charge. Its original dates were from April 30th to May 5th , 2020. “We deeply regret having had to postpone the event as planned due to the coronavirus, in full consideration of the needs of the watch and jewellery industry to be able to benefit from the platform to develop their business,” said Michel Loris-Melikoff, Managing Director of Baselworld.

By postponing the show to January 2021, Baselworld claims to have found a solution that enables the industry and all our customers to avoid losing a full year. “This postponing will also allow Baselworld to continue developing and bringing new formats and solutions as well as improvements to the new concept we propose,” added Mr Loris-Melikoff.
