Taratec’s 5th Appearance at EPHJ and the Launch of new collectionTaratec was an exhibitor at the prestigious EPHJ Palexpo in Geneva between June18 and 21 this year. The expo was also the setting for the launch of the new Retro Diver, Story Drop & Sport Racing dial collections, which was a smashing success. EPHJ is the biggest professional watch components fair in Switzerland in the B2B sector and is an annual affair that started way back in 2002.
Taratec’s ExperienceAt the EPHJ, Taratec displayed the various collections and dials and hands that were intricately designed for the most luxurious of watches. Our booth, K43, was plumb in the centre of the ‘Components’ floor of the expo. As a supplier, we repped our extensive collections of watch hands, from the diamond-studded to the elegantly lacquered. Our crimped, curved and Mother-of-pearl dials also received heavy attention for their intricate detailing and high precision. Visitors got to see the dials and hands, featured in some of the world’s most luxurious watches, face to face. Our exhibiting team regaled visitors with anecdotes and details of the process of dial and hand-making and how our collection benefit anyone who uses them. This booth brings the total number of times Taratec has participated in EPHJ to 5, having first started in 2015. As always, EPHJ 2019 served as a platform for us to interact with clients and organisations and build professional networks. The expo was also a wonderful chance for us to get our name out there in the world and look to build more fruitful industry partnerships and collaborations. Alongside Taratec, more than other exhibitors took to the show floor to showcase innovation and technology and uphold the spirit of innovation and collaboration.
About EPHJSwitzerland’s biggest ever professional watch components fair, EPHJ is a trade show that celebrates the importance of watchmaking to the Swiss economy. More importantly, it’s a platform for firms to connect and interact clients and sellers and expand on new ideas and innovation within the professional watchmaking and jewellery environment. Focusing on high precision and highlighting the use of advanced technology, EPHJ is a springboard for companies upstream or downstream of the production timeline to promote their products and come away with new partnerships. Spread over four days, this year’s expo saw more than 800 exhibitors come together to present before 20,000 visitors from all over the world. The focus of the expo was ‘high precision’ across three industries– watchmaking and jewellery, Micro-technologies and MedTech. Talks were held in the presentation area, covering topics such as optimisation solutions and R&D Skills in the digital age. With a record 96% of satisfaction, more than three-quarter exhibitors successfully closed deals during and in the aftermath of the show. The trade show is backed by some of the biggest names across industries, including Credit Suisse, Helvetia, Europa Star, Le Bijoutier and Innovate UK. Once again, EPHJ was a massive learning experience for Taratec and a chance to showcase our high-precision dials and hands collections. We look forward to being at the event again next year, with so much more to present, launch and innovate.
