Just three weeks after the 2012 Show closed, two thirds of its exhibitors have already booked a stand for 2013. In particular, over 300 horology subcontractor exhibitors have already confirmed that they will be back next year.

This unprecedented early renewal rate is a clear marker of high exhibitor confidence in this Show, which broke all its previous records in 2012. Looking back over the event, and after analysing satisfaction survey feedback, it is clear that the 2012 EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show was a resounding success. “Our decision to move to Geneva has been fully justified; indeed the impact of this move exceeded all our expectations,” says Olivier Saenger. “Visitor numbers increased by over 30%, generating significant business opportunities for all our exhibitors. This is their primary objective in taking part.”
Already over 300 registered companies
As an immediate result of this obvious success, many of the exhibitors present in Geneva have already confirmed their presence next year. Indeed, two thirds of 2012 exhibitors have already booked their stand for 2013, and over 300 EPHJ exhibitors will be back next year.
“This is an extremely strong vote of confidence, given the current context,” states André Colard. “We have clearly shown all market players that our Trade Show is both relevant and sustainable”.
“As promised during our discussions with exhibitors at the 2012 event, further enhancements will be rolled out in 2013 to ensure smooth organisation of the 2013 Show at Palexpo-Geneva, notably during the installation stage” says the organization team.
However, to maintain unity and a friendly atmosphere, the Show will not be extended beyond Palexpo Halls 1 and 2.
The next EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show will be held from 11 to 14 June 2013.
