Klaus Dittrich chairman and chief executive of Messe Munchen describes the benefits of entering the Inhorgenta Award.
The Inhorgenta Award is one of the most coveted accolades in the jewellery and watch industry. The top achievements in the areas of design, creativity, workmanship, technology and overall concept will be revealed at the award ceremony on February 24, 2019 as part of Inhorgenta Munich 22-25 February, 2019.
Alongside the nominees, prominent figures from the worlds of business, media and culture will once again be gracing the red carpet at the exclusive gala event on February 24, 2019 at the Eisbach Studios in Munich.
The fact that the Inhorgenta Award is now in its third year and the positive feedback that we have received ever since it started, prove just how important the award is for the industry.
Our top-class jury and exclusive gala evening will help to ensure that the award ceremony attracts attention from far beyond the reaches of the industry itself.
For the first time ever, the Inhorgenta Award will span eight categories: Fine Jewellery, Fashion Jewellery, Designer of the Year, Watch Design, Smart & Connected Watch of the Year, the public choice award Best Piece of Jewellery and the new categories Design Newcomer of the Year and Next Generation Retail.
National and international designers, goldsmiths, watchmakers, jewellers, manufacturers and brands and for the first time ever, up-and-coming talented individuals can submit their designs and concepts. The deadline for entries is January 21, 2019.
The new Design Newcomer of the Year category is aimed at young designers. Our new Design Newcomer of the Year category gives today’s talented individuals the opportunity to become tomorrow’s major players and use their fresh ideas to help shape the dynamic future of the jewellery and watch industry. The winners in this category will be invited to Inhorgenta Munich in 2020 and will get to exhibit there free of charge.
The new Next Generation Retail category is all about successful concepts. All jewellers are encouraged to submit innovate and market-relevant concepts. There are no limitations in terms of subject matter: from digital ideas, sales and marketing to cross-channel marketing, operational succession planning, design, manufacturing, materials and sustainability—this category is all about best-practice solutions that are making waves throughout the industry.
A jury of eight prominent figures will decide on the winners except in the Best Piece of Jewellery category where jewellery fans are being given the chance to choose who wins as part of an online public vote.
