Starting with a ceremonial ribbon cutting by German Minister for Agriculture Julia Klöckner, the three-day show (17–19 March 2019) further solidified its position as the world's leading trade fair of its kind.
ProWein 2019 once again achieved attendance growth. The share of visitors with decision-making authority also reached a strong new high: more than 80 percent of visitors were involved in purchasing decisions.
In the meantime ProWein is the most important trade fair and is constantly developing. Once an initial visit to new business partners has been made, meetings can always take place at ProWein, where everyone is located for three days."

same but different
Beyond the new vintage of wine and release of spirits, ProWein 2019 also gave a strong platform to the topic of craft drinks. The "same but different" special exhibition, with over 100 selected providers from the craft spirits, beer and cider scenes, proved a magnet for visitors.
Barkeepers inspired visitors with exceptional cocktail creations and completed the extraordinary setting of the special show in hall 7.0.
