Fabienne Lupo, President and Managing Director of the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), said:
“The SIHH is the major annual rendezvous for Fine Watchmaking stakeholders. It simply has no equivalent. This year, the major new introduction is the creation of a new place conducive to encounters and open to all-comers, which will serve as a platform for all the exhibiting Maisons. The Salon thus actively fosters ties and generates content.”

Here are some general information about the upcoming SIHH 2018
While remaining a quintessentially professional Salon, the SIHH is nonetheless determined to reach out to a new audience of Fine Watchmaking aficionados.
Given the success of last year’s public open day, another is being organised this year on Friday January 19th (the last day of the SIHH) at which visitors will be able to undertake a leisurely exploration of the architectural marvels of the stands and the splendours they house.
Prior registration is required and can be done via www.sihh.org
Finally, watch Maisons are becoming increasingly drawn to the SIHH formula and opting in.

The SIHH2018 App has been substantially optimised this year and plays the role of an interactive guide specifically designed for visitors. As well as providing useful general information, transport timetables and a map of the show (acting as a guide and recommending the shortest route between two locations), the App also and above all offers a chance to view what is going on in the auditorium, including the program as well as live broadcasts of events. This tool is intended to be a convenient and easy way of keeping in sync with the Salon in real time.
