ProWein 2021 cancelled

Organisers of ProWein – the world’s leading trade fair for wines and spirits – have announced the event will not be held as planned from March 19-23, 2021.

The numerous and ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and the current developments in infections, plus travel bans and legal framework, led Messe Düsseldorf as ProWein organiser to re-assess the planned fair.

On 25 November 2020, federal and state governments in Germany announced that trade fairs continued to be prohibited, with no changes to that decision for the foreseeable future.

“We have not taken this decision lightly – instead we have very carefully weighed the arguments for and against a trade fair during these dynamic pandemic times in close and in-depth consultation with our partners and exhibitors. The decisive factor for us was our exhibitors’ and visitors’ interests,” says Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. 

“Exhibitors can now focus on the next ProWein dates and gear their preparations to them,” says Wienkamp.

“With this move we are ensuring the planning security so indispensable to successful business.”

The 2022 ProWein dates have been scheduled for 27 to 29 March 2022.
