Date for ProWein set: 26 to 28 March 2006

The date for the next ProWein has been set: Sunday, 26 March to Tuesday, 28 March 2006. “With this choice we have complied with the wishes of the exhibitors and the en-tire industry for a date in the latter half of March,” Wilhelm Niedergöker, Managing Di-rector of Messe Düsseldorf, underscores this decision.

ProWein in Düsseldorf is the worldwide most important trade fair for the wine and spir-its industry. No other event offers such a comprehensive overview of wines and spirits in the world. The classic wine nations in Europe, headed by Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Austria are represented, as are overseas and East European producers. At the last ProWein alone, more than 28,500 trade, hotel and catering professionals and 660 journalists from 22 nations gained information on the range offered by the 2,754 exhibitors from 40 countries.
