The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie is continuing its transformation with the arrival of Girard-Perregaux and Ulysse Nardin, as well as five artisan-creators and independent workshops, who will join the ‘Carré des Horlogers’. Normally restricted to industry professionals only, the SIHH, which will take place from 16 to 20 January 2017 at Palexpo, will also be opening its doors to the general public on the Friday.

Bigger, more accessible, the 27th Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is all about change. Last year, the Salon took up residence in an entirely renovated Cité de l’Horloger’s’ – an area dedicated to artisan-creators and independent workshops. Now, two further Maisons are participating in the Salon and five representatives of ‘new-wave watchmaking’ are joining the Carré, bringing the total number of exhibitors to 30 – a record for the SIHH.

The exhibitors considered it essential to be able to reach an audience whose enthusiasm continues to grow – just like the Salon itself, which is reinforcing its reputation as the most important event in the Haute Horlogerie calendar.
