ProWein 2018 gears up for international summit meeting

With some 6,700 exhibitors from all over the world the international trade fair for wines and spirits has been sold out for a long time. All relevant wine-growing regions in the world are represented providing a complete overview of global wine ranges. Add to this a selection of some 400 spirits specialities. Newcomers include a joint stand from the Japanese government themed around sake as well as a large stand featuring various Palinka fruit brandies from Hungary. The up-and-coming “craft” theme which is in high demand is catered to by the re-designed special show “same but different”. To the tune of 50 exhibitors will exhibit their products such as craft spirits, craft beers and cider. To this end the complete special show will move to Hall 7.0 so that ProWein will have an additional hall at its disposal. Organised by the Meininger publishing house the “fizzz craft Lounge” was also drawn to the “same but different” hall – so the international bar and hospitality scene will also find a perfect setting here.   

Furthermore, the organic wine area in Hall 13 will become bigger and more comprehensive. Here trade visitors will find all relevant organic associations from Germany, Italy and France as well as numerous individual exhibitors from throughout the world. Also charted for growth is the special show Organic World. For ProWein 2018 some 40 international exhibitors will come together here. The organic area will be rounded off by a matching catering concept – the Organic Lounge – as well as a dedicated lecture area.

The programme of events accompanying ProWein is also nothing short of spectacular: numerous tastings are scheduled for the ProWein Forum in Halls 10 and 13. Add to this, a host of events right at the exhibitors’ stands. The spectrum of approximately 500 events ranges from tastings with a national focus to cross-origin presentations. Themed highlights also include the unique Champagne Lounge boasting 40 tradition-rich Champagne cellars. A treat for all wine lovers is the parallel “ProWein goes city” initiative featuring many wine events in and around Düsseldorf.
