ProWein 2020, International Trade Fair for Wines and Spirits, has been postponed due to the effects of the coronavirus/COVID-19. The new dates are the regular trade fair dates from Sunday, March 21 to Tuesday, March 23, 2021. “We have taken this decision in in-depth dialogue with our partner associations and key players in the industry. The special challenge here was there is only a very tight ‘trade fair window’ open for the wine industry, one which is additionally narrowed down by the insecure situation created by the coronavirus,” said Erhard Wienkamp, Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. “Against this background the decision is the only correct conclusion to be drawn, all in the interest of the wine and spirits industry.” Vinitaly in Verona, Italy, and Vinexpo Hong Kong also announced postponements to summer 2020, as of press time.
