The world’s first International Watch Fair on Facebook is now underway. This unique virtual watch fair, hosted online by Gevril Group and open to everyone, runs through this Friday, September 9, 2011.
Watch industry insiders, the media and the general public have already started to gather on Facebook in large numbers to participate in this groundbreaking event. Watch brands are posting website links and photos of their luxury, fashion and sports timepieces.
This is a fair that you can attend right from your computer or mobile device. No plane tickets. No jet lag. You simply log on to Facebook day or night whenever it’s convenient for you.
Whether you’re a manufacturer, merchant, consumer or a member of the media, you can still get in on the action. However, the watch fair ends on Friday, so don’t delay.
Registration is easy too. Simply go to the event page on Facebook and let us know that you’re attending. Then, when it’s convenient for you, you’ll go to the Gevril Group page on Facebook where you can post on the page wall or in the discussion area. You may post as often as you wish — within reason.
Not everyone has had an opportunity to go to Baselworld, but this could very easily be the next best thing. Bring your photos and videos. Tell us about your brand or tell us a story about the watch of your dreams — or even about the watch you wear everyday. You’ll be able to see what other watch aficionados are currently wearing and find answers to your horological questions from industry leaders.
What can you accomplish by attending the International Watch Fair on Facebook? That’s entirely up to you. You might learn something. You might sell something. You might make some valuable new connections. With any luck, you even might discover something entirely new. We’re almost certain that if you enjoy watches, you’re going to enjoy yourself at our fair.

Comments are welcome.
