In the aftermath of the cancellation of Baselworld and Watches and Wonders, I consider the future of these trade shows for brands, visitors and enthusiasts in this 13th episode of Watch Chronicler Podcast. Today, I also present the exclusive Watch Chronicler X Zodiac Watches event in London taking place later in March.
The future of trade shows around the world appears to be an uncertain one. Automotive shows are in decline and the major annual watch show, Baselworld, has shown decreasing attendance each year since 2015. For this year, such conventions and shows have been cancelled due to the outbreak of coronavirus around the world, yet this still leaves the question of whether they have a future.
In today’s show, I examine the future of these shows and how they may change.
Also, stay tuned to find out about the Watch Chronicler X Zodiac Watches show taking place in London in a few weeks. Here, you will have unprecedented access to participate in a Q&A with the head of Zodiac watches in addition to the chance to see their Baselworld releases before anyone else.
