Seiko/Grand Seiko Pull Out Of Bazelworld 2020

The topic title here pretty much says it all. And that's after Swatch Group quit the whole shebang.

Pretty soon, there won't be anyone there but Davis and Temple "making deals."

Is it that big of a deal for the big dogs in the industry to be at Baselworld anymore?

I think this might give the smaller fry more exposure.

Maybe. But...

I can't imagine being a journalist, distributor, or retailer flying all around the globe to check out Roamer, Hush Puppies, and Bremont.

Also - a few months ago, Breitling also announced it was pulling out.

Yeah, Basel is on fumes.

Becoming true of trade shows in general- changed like everything else; the expense of boothing these shows no longer yields the increased distribution returns to justify the money.

The Consumer Electronics Show is hemorrhaging exhibitors as well. A friend at Nikon told me they have been toying with the idea of withdrawing for a few years. The camera market has been flattened out due to price fixing and is paying the price that watches and other lux goods whored out to priced fixed markets have yielded... there's no more urgency to buy for distributors than there is for the retail consumer.

May they all drown in their own drek.
