Totally innovative, Re-Luxury will be the first event dedicated to the re-commerce of luxury and collectible objects, as well as to initiatives in the field of the circular economy.
Held from 4 to 7 November 2022 in Geneva and open to the public and professionals alike, the event will welcome some 30 Swiss and international participants.
Today, more pre-owned watches are sold worldwide than new timepieces. The market for pre-owned and sustainable luxury items has exploded in recent years, and this is just the beginning. This more economical and environment-friendly trend is especially popular with the younger generation.
The luxury resale market is set to last and grow; it completely transforms the notion of “consumption” into “investment” and these are investments that over time often acquire a value higher than the initial purchase price.
Re-Luxury will be a multi-sector showcase for watches, jewellery, fashion, handbags and luxury accessories.
Among the participants of this first edition is the global ecommerce leader eBay which, as the founding partner of Re-Luxury, will be presenting its unparalleled selection of authentic luxury goods, including handbags, watches and jewellery – all of which are top categories for the marketplace.
WatchBox, the world’s leading platform for luxury collectible watches, will be present and will offer a selection of watches from the most respected and established brands as well as emerging independent watchmakers, all certified authentic and covered by a worldwide two-year warranty.
Richard Mille combines unique expertise – reflecting the greatest respect for watchmaking traditions – with cutting-edge technology and innovation. An uncompromising brand whose ultimate goal is to offer exceptional timepieces. A few rare watches will be on display for visitors to admire on this occasion.
Origyn Foundation, which protects the most valuable luxury objects by issuing certificates of authenticity based on biometric technology, will be a main partner of Re-Luxury “Talks”.
In addition to this commercial space for the purchase and resale of pre-owned luxury items, Re-Luxury will highlight other players in the luxury circular economy, namely a selection of the best repair and restoration artisans who will be grouped together in the “Clinic”. Visitors will also be able to discover and use their expertise to repair, restore, as well as to re-cycle, transform and enhance their precious objects so as make them last.
Grouped together in the “Lab”, start-ups and new players in the luxury sector will present their technological innovations and above all their new approach to a more responsible and sustainable luxury.
During the “Talks”, thanks to the speakers invited to make presentations, visitors will be able to share and meet collectors and experts, as well as to learn and discover new circular economy trends in the luxury world: Re-Commerce, Up-cycling, Re-cycling, Sourcing, Blockchain, NFTs etc.
Organised by HelvetEvents on the initiative of Fabienne Lupo, Managing Director of Re-Luxury, this event will take place at the Hotel President Wilson.
