International trade fair for wines and spirits, which has been held in Düsseldorf (Germany) in March since 1994. The DWI acts as the ideal sponsor of ProWein. The motto is "professionals for professionals", only trade visitors are allowed (specialist trade, food retail, hotel industry, gastronomy, importers, exporters and community caterers). The focus of the fair is in contrast to the competing wine fairs like Vinexpo (Bordeaux) and Vinitaly (Verona) at the tasting.
In the meantime, ProWein has developed into one of the leading trade fairs for wines and spirits with a high proportion of foreign exhibitors. The supporting program consists of events with tasting programs, information, marketing forums and presentations. Messe Düsseldorf has initiated offshoots with ProWine China in Shanghai and ProWine Asia in Singapore / Hong Kong since 2015 in order to reach the Asian market more effectively. At ProWein 2017 in Düsseldorf, there was a record result with 6,400 exhibitors from 60 countries from all five continents. See also under awards and wine Events,
