While Baselworld 2016 only closes tomorrow, next year’s event has already been scheduled. Baselworld today tweeted that next year’s event, the aptly named Baselworld 2017, will take place from March 23rd to March 30th 2017. This is roughly a week later than this year’s event.

Much like this year’s event, the focus is expected to remain on traditional watches and jewelry. Smartwatches featured more prominently this year (including announcements from Tissot, Michael Kors and Nixon to name just a few) and that is not expected to change next year as more horological companies begin to offer smarter watches and smartwatches.
Baselworld expects that some 150,000 people from over 100 countries will come down to this year’s event to see the latest collections from about 1,500 brands. Baselworld 2017 promises to be just as large.
