Prowein 2020 Has Been Cancelled
Due To The Coronavirus Outbreak
The fair is postponed to 2021
ProWein 2020 has been officially postponed until next year. It will still be held in Dusseldorf, from 21 to 23 March.
It’s official: ProWein has been postponed until next year.
The most important international wine fair, which was planned to be held in Dusseldorf, has been cancelled because "the very narrow trade fair window for the wine industry, which was further reduced by the uncertainty created by the current health emergency” has been missed, Erhard Wienkamp, CEO of Messe Dusseldorf, explained to WineNews.
“In this case – continues Erhard Wienkamp – the decision made is the only conclusion we could draw, to protect the wine and spirits industry”. The news has also gained the support of the German Wine Institute, ProWein’s primary sponsor: “Considering both advantages and disadvantages, Messe Dusseldorf has reacted in a mindful, prudent and proper manner”.
The fair organizer has confirmed that the conditions and contracts agreed for 2020 will remain valid until next year. The same condition applies to the tickets purchased by visitors.
