This is THE SHOW:

Under the motto “Best of Jewelry & Watches”, THE SHOW in Hamburg will present the who’s and who of the jewelry and watch scene with around 60 international brands from October 1 to 3, 2022. The innovative boutique concept with jewelry shows, watch talks, gala and talents competition combines business and fun and is aimed at players in the industry and top jewelers who can also bring their best end customers. The special ambience of the extraordinary luxury event on the Elbe is also enhanced by the unusual location – a historic pepper warehouse on Hamburg’s harbor.

THE SHOW Talents presented by Wellendorff

Together with the world-famous luxury brand Wellendorff from the Goldstadt Pforzheim, THE SHOW offers five young talents the unique opportunity to present themselves and their skills to an exclusive audience of jewelers and selected end customers. The prominent jury chaired by Christoph Wellendorff will select five candidates from all the applicants. The five winners will receive their own exhibition area at THE SHOW from October 1 to 3, 2022, including showcase and branding, and will also be presented live on the SHOW stage on October 1.
