ProWein will officially skip 2021 and host an in-person edition at Koelnmesse in late March 2022. The wine trade fair can’t be held due to restrictive COVID-19 measures and travel bans. 


Another time, another opportunity to taste the most refined wines and spirits in the world in great company at ProWein. The international trade fair offers visitors a packed program that features the crowd-pleasing tasting areas, exhibition spaces and culinary events to keep the thousands in the audience satisfied.

Going strong since 1994, ProWein is an excellent opportunity to launch new flavors and popularize vintages as well as boost sales numbers in new markets. The program has several exciting events planned and you have experts hosting lectures that tackle current pressing topics and discussion rounds where you can participate.

Aside the variety of vintages from around the world, the product portfolio extends to the entire value chain. Visitors can enjoy the variety of jewellery bottles, decorative caps, gift boxes, glasses, inventory management systems, bar utensils, barware, POS systems and pouring aids.


ProWein is a mainstay on the cultural calendar in Dusseldorf, Germany, and arrives every single year at the start of spring – usually in March. Editions run for a total of three days and are open to professional visitors. Messe Düsseldorf serves as the official organiser and host for the ProWein with generous support from the German Wine Institute.

Doors open from 09:00 am in the morning until 18:00 pm in the afternoon on all three days, though be sure to check the official program for any changes or special events’ scheduling.

Commuting in Dusseldorf is effortless even if you’ve chosen to not rent a car. Bus line 722 and the tram lines U78 and U79 are quick connections to the exhibition grounds and run regularly every day. In the end you never lose time commuting.
