Prowein 2021 Not Held Due to COVID-19 Pandemic


Next ProWein: March 27 – 29, 2022

ProWein 2021 – the world’s leading and most important trade fair for wines and spirits – will not be held as planned from March 19 – 23, 2021 in Düsseldorf, Germany due to COVID-19 related restrictions. The current COVID-19 infection rates, ongoing travel restrictions and legal stipulation have led Messe Düsseldorf, the organizer of ProWein, to re-assess the situation. Further developments are not foreseeable, particularly in view of the decision by the German Federal and State governments on November 25, 2020, according to which trade fairs can still not be held.  “We did not make this decision lightly – on the contrary, in intensive and close coordination with our partners and exhibitors, we very carefully examined the arguments for or against a trade fair in these dynamic pandemic times. The decisive factor for us was primarily the interest of our exhibitors and visitors,” explained Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf.

In this context the timing of the decision played a very important role: “Exhibitors can now focus their attention on the next ProWein date and gear their preparations accordingly. This way we can guarantee the planning security that is essential for successful business.” In line with this long-term strategy the ProWein 2022 dates have already been set: March 27 – 29, 2022.

ProWein World: Outlook for 2021 & 2022

The next event in Messe Düsseldorf’s wine trade fair portfolio will be ProWine Sao Paulo from October 5 – 7, 2021. ProWine China, which was just held successfully, will be renamed ProWine Shanghai next year and will return to the Shanghai New International Expo Center from November 9 – 11, 2021. The next ProWine Asia will also be renamed – ProWine Hong Kong – and will be staged from May 18 – 21, 2021. The next ProWine Asia in Singapore will be renamed ProWine Singapore and will not take place again until 2022 due to the constraints caused by the COVID-19 pandemic (the original dates were March 2 – 5, 2021).
