As One Trade Fair ends Another Begins:

• Exhibitor registration for ProWein 2016 now open
• Applications welcome for the “same but different” show
• Secure the last spaces at ProWine China 2015 (Shanghai) and ProWine Asia 2016 (Singapore)

Just a few weeks after the international wine and spirits sector came together in Düsseldorf for the highly successful ProWein 2015 (5,981 exhibitors from all relevant wine cultivating nations and regions met with 52,393 trade visitors from the retail and catering trade from 120 countries) preparations for the next edition of the leading trade fair are already underway. Registration documents for exhibitors at ProWein 2016 – from 13 to 15 March 2016 in Düsseldorf – are available as from now from (in the “Exhibitors Service” section).

Companies already exhibiting this year benefit from a simplified procedure here: when entering access codes (found on the admission documents for ProWein 2015) a pre-filled form appears that can be updated as required. Naturally, all forms and information are also available for new exhibitors. The deadline for registrations is 31/07/2015.

Participants Sought for “same but different”
Furthermore, as from now Messe Düsseldorf is also accepting applications for the second edition of “same but different”. At ProWein 2016 innovative ideas in wine production and marketing will be presented by participants from throughout the world. With this year’s highly praised special show those behind ProWein wish not only to offer a platform for innovative ideas and approaches but also stimulate inspiration and a creative exchange of ideas within the sector. For this reason the trade fair stand is already designed in a suitably striking way in tune with the motto. Furthermore, the special show will be sponsored by Messe Düsseldorf: participants do not need to pay stand rental. Interested parties can contact Nicole Funke from the ProWein team on

Taking ProWein’s Successful Concept to the Markets of Asia
For wine and spirit producers wanting to showcase themselves on the Chinese market ProWine China 2015 still has a number of individual stand spaces left. This fair runs from 11 to 13 November at the SNIEC exhibition centre in Shanghai and recently set new standards for China’s wine trade fair market: flying their flags at the event last autumn in Shanghai were 19 country pavilions and three regional pavilions with wine and spirits manufacturers from 38 countries – more than at any other wine trade fair in China.

Manufacturers with their sights on the South-East Asian market will find the right platform at ProWine Asia.
