Michelle made my job so much easier with her quick responses, patience and professionalism. I was sending 3 people to Anuga at the last minute and her help in finding lodging at a reasonable price, good location and quality hotel was outstanding. You have a winner with Michelle! She's definitely management material.
About the event
Covid-19 Event Update
HOURUNIVERSE 2022 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Also, organisers have opted to delay the latest edition to put in place a new event concept. Stay tuned for further updates about the hosting dates!
HOURUNIVERSE comes as the direct replacement of Baselworld, which at this point was one of the biggest and most influential trade fairs for watchmaking, jewels and gemstones. This new fair takes the successes of Baselworld and updates them with an even richer product portfolio and a new professional focus. HOURUNIVERSE is the future of trade events as it’s the first trade fair to embrace a truly hybrid format. In addition to a live event held in Basel Switzerland at Messe Basel every year, HOURUNIVERSE will also give brands and buyers access to a digital offer that will be active 365 days of the year. The impact of this on professional conversations and sales generation is going to be tremendous.
HOURUNIVERSE builds on top of the traditional product portfolio in interesting ways. Yes, there will be jewellery collections, pearls and gemstones, silverware, timepieces and special occasion gifts. But there will be a lot of smart and connected luxury products, and the conversations taking place will be on sustainability and circular business models. There are no lists of exhibitors just yet as the trade fair is building towards its debut, but it’s expected to see previous exhibitors such as Patek Phillipe, LVMH, TAG Heuer, Rolex, Chopard and Messika to showcase at this new event. The professional audience is said to feature traditional and online retailers including certified Pre-Owned, and every link in the distribution chain. These are the elements that will guarantee the success of HOURUNIVERSE as an undisputed procurement platform.
Did You Know?
HOURUNIVERSE has grand ambitions to change the game in major ways. The branding of the trade fair centers on it being inclusive to everyone and not just professionals. What this means is that doors are open to end customers, who are encouraged to meet and communicate with brands face to face. Organisers have announced that HOURUNIVERSE will be a B2B2C meeting point and its biggest mission will be to create a real sense of community. The first edition is going to be crucial in this missions, which is why a lot of the event will have outdoor catering and open spaces along with Happy Hours for socializing. Programming will also feature HOURTALK – a series of talks and conferences on the trends and challenges of the day.

Hello Dear Tom,
How are you?
Many thanks again for your help.
The hotel was nice and we really enjoyed going there
As the operating and marketing manager of our new office abroad, sometimes one just doesn`t have enough time to take care of small details that come back to haunt you at the very last minute. Even though, I was not familiar with your company before and I had never worked with an external company either, you remained reassuring and have kept your word. Within a very limited time frame and with only a few emails you were able to put me and 10 of my colleagues in a good hotel, with excellent service and near the city center... I have already send you the dates and locations of our next fairs! It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you again.
