International Trade Fair of Wine and Spirits
More than 55,000 international trade visitors, 47% international professionals, came to the nine exhibition halls from 13 to 15 March 2016 to form an overview of the range from 6,200 exhibitors from 59 countries
Success across the Board
The results of the 23rd ProWein are certainly positive: More than 55,000 international trade visitors, 47% international professionals, came to the nine exhibition halls from 13 to 15 March 2016 to form an overview of the range from 6,200 exhibitors from 59 countries and place their orders for the current year. While the professionals remained amongst themselves in the exhibition halls, the “ProWein goes City” initiative once again proved a highlight in the city. The programme of events provided gourmets and wine fans with a wide range of first-class events to choose from.
Düsseldorf once again impressively underlined its reputation as a metropolis for the wine and spirits business: after three days of activity ProWein 2016 came to a very successful close on Tuesday, 15 March. 6,200 exhibitors from 59 nations featured in Düsseldorf. All major wine nations and cultivating regions were present in the nine exhibition halls – the “classics” from Europe and the New World as well as the more “exotic” on the international scene (like Bolivia and Armenia). No less varied was the line-up from the 420 spirits exhibitors from 30 countries. This spanned classy brandies and liqueurs through to national specialities and international classics.
This product spectrum attracted more than 55,000 trade visitors, including more than 24,000 international visitors to Düsseldorf – a rise of 6% over the previous year (2015: 52,000 visitors). This is largely due to the increased number of trade visitors from the USA/Canada as well as Central and South America. Echoing the views of many here Craig Wolf, President and CEO at Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America said: “I have to say I was quite impressed with the size, scope and the tremendous variety of quality products on offer at ProWein from all over the world – all in a modern, easily navigable facility. ProWein has done an amazing job building and growing one of the premier industry trade shows, creating a multitude of opportunities for buyers and sellers alike.“
The great ordering activity at ProWein is also very pleasing: 40% of trade visitors already placed orders right at the fair itself and some 44% plan to order after the fair.
ProWein goes International
ProWein 2016 was also a platform for presenting its international subsidiary events ProWine China and ProWine Asia. After its first two successful events ProWine China will once again be held in Shanghai from 7 to 9 November 2016. Expected here once again are more than 650 exhibitors. The latest baby in the international product family is ProWine Asia from 24 to 27 April 2018 in Singapore.
