Craftsmanship, Design, and Plenty of Jewelry in Munich

IHM Crafts Fair and Munich Jewelry Days celebrate artistic jewelry and outstanding craftsmanship.

Circa 250 exhibitors invite guests for creative sharing and unforgettable shopping experiences in Hall B1 from March 7th through 13th, 2018. Far from the mainstream, the items on display in Munich appeal to jewelry lovers, fashionistas and fans of contemporary design. “Many visitors use Handwerk & Design to get an overview, to meet special craftspeople and to see exclusive products, or to schedule a personal appointment for visiting an atelier after the fair,” says Dieter Dohr, chairman of the board of GHM Gesellschaft für Handwerksmessen mbH.

IHM, Ways to Design

Under the title Ways to Design, academies, colleges and universities update visitors about their educational programs and offer live demonstrations of craftsmanly techniques in active workshops

Particular attractions at Handwerk & Design are the special shows Exempla, Talente, Meister der Moderne and Schmuck. Schmuck (Jewelry), which is regarded as world’s most important exhibit of contemporary auteur jewelry, annually makes Munich a meeting place for the international jewelry scene. A large number of exhibitions featuring contemporary jewelry also take place throughout the city and in Munich’s surrounding area.
