We look forward to blogger/vlogger visits and will be pleased to assist them with an accreditation. We are also pleased to help with finding information, contacts and stories. We are always happy to welcome bloggers, and support them in their search for information, contacts and obtaining a press accreditation.
Requirements for accreditation are:

The latest blog should not be over 1 month old.

It must be clearly recognisable that the posts relating to ProWein were edited by you personally.
It must also be clearly recognisable that you as a blog/vlog author regularly post contributions on focal themes at ProWein that are published in well-established blogs/vlogs.

Accreditation for bloggers/vloggers can only be requested online if submitted no later than two weeks to the start of the trade fair.
We reserve the right to limit the number of persons admitted per blog/vlog.
The blogger accreditation form serves as a legitimation and must be filled in truly and completely.
