Organizers Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons have confirmed that Dubai Watch Week will be back in 2019 for its fourth edition. Last year’s edition was the biggest yet, with over 6,000 attendees and more than 30 brands convening at Dubai’s International Finance Center.

The Dubai Watch Week Dream Team

Dubai Watch Week has established itself as a must attend event on the horological calendar. The overarching theme of Dubai Watch Week is to assemble the very best brands, press, and industry insiders to share knowledge and expand education for all generations of watch lovers and connoisseurs.

“Initially, the plan was for Dubai Watch Week to take a two-year break and return in 2020, but thanks to the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the industry, press and visitors on their respective experiences, we are delighted to announce its return in November 2019 after only a 12-month hiatus.” – Melika Yazdjerdi, Director of Dubai Watch Week and Senior Marketing & Communication Director, Seddiqi Holding

Thinking to the future

While next year’s edition is sure to be the largest yet, the organizers are already thinking ahead to the 2021 edition which will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the formation of the United Arab Emirates.

“The mission and vision of Dubai Watch Week has been welcomed by the watch industry and its supporters alike; we are committed to continue providing a platform for collectors, brands, watchmakers and the members of the press to interact and share knowledge.” – Melika Yazdjerdi, Director of Dubai Watch Week and Senior Marketing & Communication Director, Seddiqi Holding

Dubai Watch Week Returns in 2019 for its Fourth Edition

As a past attendee of Dubai Watch Week, I can safely say this show is a can’t miss experience. From the plethora of exhibiting brands, creative hub sessions, featured speakers, and quality time with friends new and old. I certainly can’t wait to be back in Dubai in 2019.

Full details on the 2019 version will be available soon. In the meantime, pencil November 2019 in your calendar for what’s sure to be a very special event.
