PARIS — The Baselworld watch and jewelry show trade show will halve its exhibitor numbers next year in response to a prolonged market downturn, in the most visible sign so far of the impact of smartwatches on traditional watchmaking.
The industry’s leading showcase expects to welcome between 600 and 700 exhibiting companies in 2018, down from 1,300 in 2017 and 1,500 in 2016, organizers said. The duration of the show, scheduled to run from March 22 to 27, has been shortened by two days.
