The Inhorgenta Munich took place February 14-17 2014 in Munich (Germany). It is one of the largest jewellery and watch trade fairs in Europe. It hosted and co-organized The Pearl Forum, together with SustainablePearls. Laurent Cartier introduced and moderated the event. Julie Nash (Sustainable Pearls & UVM) also attended the event as a speaker presenting new findings on sustainability marketing opportunities with pearls. This event was made possible through generous support from the Inhorgenta Munich Fair. 

 

The event was meant as a forum to present and discuss current trends in the pearl industry. This included what sustainability means in a pearl context, and how sustainability marketing of pearls could be developed.
