Incorporated in October 2019 the W.O.I. (Watches Of Italy) group is a free aggregation of Italian operators in the watch industry and accessories related to the world of watches (boxes and packaging, straps and leatherworks, bracelets, spare parts, supplies, materials, processes and finishes, design, machining, prototyping, etc.). The group has just announced the details on their upcoming exhibition which is scheduled on 26th and 27th of September 2020.
The idea was born simply for creating a flexible and easy to be managed container of Italian entrepreneurs who have devoted themselves to the universe of watches at 360° and put them in synergistic contact. To date, the collective already has achieved over 50 members including established brands, microbrands and startups, artisans, designers and planners.
The purpose of this Group is to create an useful network for all the members and to organize, on a regular basis, sharing and promotion appointments such as exhibitions, gatherings, presentations and launches of new models, markets and expos, etc., so that each of the members can attend and introduce themselves to the enthusiasts, collectors, the media and the general public.
The goal in progress over time is to create an ever-wider network at national level and to succeed under a single flag to be present and active even at major international events.
The first national exhibition/gathering, thanks to the interest of the Municipality of Tortona who, as a sponsor, showed great enthusiasm and interest in the initiative and immediately proposed itself as a partner of the collective for its pilot experience of a fair/expo, will be held on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th of September 2020 at the Museum of Agricultural Machinery “Orsi” in Via Emilia 446 – 15057 Tortona (AL). The fair/expo is FREE ENTRANCE and will observe the hours continued from 10:00 to 19:00.
