The ShowCase was created by two Geneva-based entrepreneurs, Denis Hayoun and Fabrice Rabhi, who are both active in and shareholders of companiesin the world of high watchmaking in Switzerland. Launched on the market in September 2021, just 10 months ago (after a gestation period that lasted nearly a year and a half), The Showcase truly breaks the distance between the brand and the end customer. The solution is the missing link between online and physical sales. What's more, it brings the human element back into the digital relationship.

Denis Hayoun and Fabrice Rabhi commented: "We are delighted and grateful to win the LVMH Award for our solution, which not only professionalizes the presentation of luxury products online, but also reduces the travel and carbon footprint of its users.
While The ShowCase has already been adopted by some twenty major watch brands - groups and major independent players- the solution has also met with great success among distributors and retailers around the world, who see all the advantages of a personalized, ultra-qualitative and enriched product presentation, with, at the same time, intimate visual contact with their customers.
Brands need to be omnichannel, sustainable and focused on service and customer experience. We believe that The ShowCase will quickly move beyond the watch world to address the needs of the jewelry and small leather goods in the near future."
