EPHJ trade show to bring high-precision watchmaking industry together in September

August 27, 2021

The organisers of the EPHJ trade show have confirmed that the event will once again bring together the high-precision watchmaking, microtechnology and medicine industry when the show takes place in Geneva, Switzerland, on September 14–17, following many months of postponement due to the COVID-19 disruptions and restrictions.

“The convivial and friendly spirit at the EPHJ trade show is one of the main factors behind its success,” stated Alexandre Catton, Director of the show. “Everyone really wants to meet up, reconnect with each other, smile at one other without a screen, have a drink with their clients and do some face to face business.”

This year, EPHJ will host more than 500 exhibitors at Geneva-Palexpo, welcoming large numbers of Swiss and international visitors, mainly from neighbouring countries. Innovation is expected to be the main theme of the 2021 event, especially during the various round table discussions.
