Fernando Pavón, Export Director Emiliana/Chile: "This year’s ProWein has been a tremendous success for us! We have been able to extend our presence in Europe as well as to gain new customers from Canada and US. Our organic sparkling wine Emiliana, that we tested here one year ago, has been received very well. ProWein is the best platform to launch new products, as it is very professional and b2b-focussed."
Antje Kreikenbaum, Managing Director of Herdade dos Lagos/Portugal:"ProWein is the most important exhibition, if you want to acquire new customers. We have build relationships from Japan to Canada, due to our presence here. One reason is having two gold medal wines at the Mundos Vini tasting zone, which makes customers cross three halls till they get to us. The other is for sure our specialization on vegan wines, which shows up to be a rising trend."
Jan Rock, Director of Corporate Communications, Henkell & Co./Germany: "ProWein has developed into the most important international wine trade fair and even though it didn’t become too big. It is a wonderful platform to communicate new offers and trends. One trend goes to premium quality, which benefits our Fürst von Metternich line."
Mireia Prim, Brand Ambassador, Torres/Spanien: "ProWein has become the most important trade fair for us. We meet importers from the whole world. They all come very good prepared, so that we take full advantage of the three days here. We also use ProWein to detect new trends, like f.ex. the increasing demand for non-alcoholic wines, of which we now can offer three different ones."
José Alberto Zuccardi, Director of Familia Zuccardi/Argentina: "ProWein has the best customers of the world. It is the first time we came with an own booth and it really worked out well: We made a lot of new contacts to USA and Canada. This year we stressed out the uniqueness of our terroirs, which is becoming more and more important, at least for Argentinian wines."
Jonathan Hesketh, Managing Director, Parker Coonawarra Estate/Australia:"This year’s ProWein has been very good for us. Actually, every year it is getting busier! We offer now a variety of more obscure wines, like the Negroamaro from Barossa Valley, which is very well received, especially from Asian, North American and European customers. This international interest is only possible at ProWein, as it it is the only truly international fair!"
Norbert Zühlke, Segment Manager, O-I: Hones, Pure, Iconic Glass/Germany:"We offer innovative wine bottles with screw corks and are very satisfied with our presence in the design & packaging sector at ProWein. Our helix bottles with their inner thread and the fitting screw corks from Amorim are attracting growing attention. If you want to launch an innovative product, it is a must to come to ProWein. Every well-known company is present here! This saves you a round-the-world trip!"
