Much has changed in recent years: a new matchmaking app for smartphones has been introduced, limited free Wi-Fi is now available, and the admission tickets for Messe Düsseldorf no longer include public transportation. Here's a brief overview.
From morning until late afternoon, the ProWein days are dedicated to discovery, negotiation, and networking. Afterward, it's time to relax by participating in one of the many Wine & Dine opportunities, joining a champagne tasting, or perhaps visiting a fine restaurant with an extensive wine list.
Never before has the Meininger publishing house been as prominently represented at ProWein as in 2024. Meininger Verlag offers an extensive seminar program at its booth and highlights its multifaceted expertise in wines, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages across three tasting zones. And on the day before the fair, the company kicks off the major industry gathering in Düsseldorf with Meininger’s Wine Conference and the Meininger Award.
